Here are two important things that may sound unrelated but they totally are. If there was ever a good time to be present at The Paper Agency in Los Angeles it is now! National polka dot day falls on Jan 22 and it’s being celebrated with the iconic Minnie Mouse who made polka dots iconic. No points for guessing where this event is taking place; I’ve given it away in the first two lines. Moving on, the event is cutely called, “Minnie Rocks the Dots,” it is a two-day interactive fashion and art installation heralding her signature style which is going to be such a visual treat for all Disney fans. What you can expect at the exhibition is Minnie’s global influence on fashion and pop culture since her black-and-white introduction in 1928 and her evolution into colour. So we finally get to learn a lot more about her hat trends, and her famous bow and ears and her penchant for pink and red that has influenced many generations of girls.
A special day like this needs to be remembered with something equally special. That will be covered by Fashion designer Christian Siriano who has specially designed a custom dress designed exclusively for Minnie during the preview night on Jan. 22. The designer is going to make Minnie look downtown chic with an A-line cocktail dress with allover over scale bows and crystals representing polka dots. To go with it are specially designed shoes that have a special adornment which he refuses to divulge details about. The exhibition at The Paper Agency will be free and open to the public on Jan. 23 from noon to 8 p.m. Fans can also indulge in limited-edition items in The Dot Shop pop-up store.
