OPENING CEREMONY PRESENTS SPRING 2018 SHOW AT DISNEYLAND
MARCH 8, 2018, ANAHEIM, CALIF. – Last night, Opening Ceremony presented its Spring 2018 runway show, entitled « The Happiest Show on Earth, » on the iconic grounds of Disneyland in Anaheim, California, which was inspired by Mickey Mouse, the true original who celebrates his ninetieth anniversary this year.
Drawing from the Californian roots of founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, and Opening Ceremony and Disney’s shared lineage of fantasy and imagination, the show presented Opening Ceremony’s Spring 2018 collection alongside a brand-new collaboration between Opening Ceremony and Disney, celebrating Mickey Mouse.
The show was held in Toon Town, the Disneyland home of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Goofy, and Donald Duck. Mickey and Minnie made an appearance wearing Opening Ceremony designs. The show featured a half-time show with cast-members from Mickey’s Soundsational Parade. Ezra Rubin a.k.a. Kingdom, a longtime friend of Opening Ceremony, composed an original score for the show inspired by the Disney classic « It’s A Small World, » and the score to Fantasia, originally performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra.
