Disney Villains are hitting the Runway! Our favorite Disney badies will be taking center stage at New York Fashion Week on September 7, 2018, when luxury fashion brand THE BLONDS present ‘Disney Villains,’a runway show featuring their Spring ’19 collection, which was inspired by some of Disney’s
most wicked characters.
“Disney Villains have long lived in the dark shadows of the beloved heroes and heroines of their stories, and yet these characters are just as celebrated,” said Ken Potrock, President, Consumer Products and Commercialization. “Through our collaboration with THE BLONDS, some of Disney’s most notorious villains will be reimagined in totally unexpected ways during one of fashion’s most important weeks.”
Known for creating glamorously over the top pieces with a rebellious twist, THE BLONDS, co-founded by designer Phillipe Blond and creative director David Blond, will feature looks inspired by villains such as Cruella de Vil, Maleficent, Evil Queen, the Queen of Hearts, Dr. Facillier, Ursula and her dark eel minions Flotsam and Jetsam during the show.

career. The opportunity to collaborate with Disney and see these designs come to life on THE
BLONDS runway is an absolute dream come true,” said David and Phillipe Blond, Designers, THE
As part of the creative process, Phillipe and David toured the Disney Archive Research Library
where they learned about each Villain’s mythology and viewed the inspiration behind the iconic
animation of these characters, including original artwork and sculpts.
“What drew us to working with Disney Villains are the complex attributes of the characters
themselves,” continued David Blond. “Often misunderstood, Disney Villains are flawed,
imposing and mysterious, and we loved the idea of taking these characteristics and translating
them in a glamorous way, making them the heroes of our story.”
