Celebrated Designer Charlotte Tarantola Announces Line Inspired by ‘Alice in Wonderland’

Charlotte Tarantola's 'Alice in Wonderland' collectionThe surreal/fantasy-adventure film directed by Tim Burton, “Alice in Wonderland,” comes to DVD and Blu-Ray on June 1, 2010 (U.S. retailers). In the spirit of this fantastic journey, Disney Consumer Products and Charlotte Tarantola have come together to create stunning cardigans worthy of this celebrated Disney line: Charlotte Tarantola for Disney. Well-known in the fashion industry for her trend-right designs that play up coloration and innovative treatments, Tarantola was given access to Tim Burton’s artwork for “Alice in Wonderland” to develop a collection that captures the allure and mystery of Alice’s surrealistic journey in an apparel line that is decidedly 21st Century.

The collection offers prints, ruffles and sparkles that will make you never want to leave Wonderland. Like Alice peering through the looking glass, you can see flowery friends, tea-time treats, pocket watches, lace and mysterious keys, elements from the film with a balance of artistry and subtlety found only in other Tarantola creations.

“The arresting settings and characters in Tim Burton’s interpretation of “Alice In Wonderland” provided great inspiration and have made it possible for us to work with a group of renowned designers to create a truly unique collection of lifestyle products that will continue to position Disney at the forefront of fashion trends,” said Pam Lifford, executive vice president, global fashion and home, DCP. “Our collaboration with Charlotte Tarantola brings it all together in a way that is fun and interesting for consumers and Disney fans alike.”
