Electric Holiday: Barney’s NYC and Disney Create Magical Fashion Holiday Campaign
Recently, the Disney company teamed up with Barney’s in NYC on a magical holiday campaign to celebrate the upcoming holidays. The campaign includes an animated short as well as whimsical Disney-themed window displays. The adorable cartoon short is entitled ‘Electric Holiday,’ and follows Minnie on a high fashion journey as she window-shops for a fabulous Lanvin dress and day-dreams about traveling to France to walk the runways for Paris fashion week. Along the way, she meets various fashion who’s-who icons, like Sarah Jessica Parker and Carine Reitfeld.
There’s been a touch of controversy tainting the pixie dust, however, as some are concerned that Minnie’s fantasy is revolved around her turning tall and skinny, and that “Skinny Minnie” sends a negative message to little girls. But aside from the controversy, the clip is a whimsical and fun fashion-filled touch of magic that is perfect for the holidays.
What do you think of the clip?
