Last year Disney celebrated the mouse that started it all – Mickey Mouse The True Original. Disney commemorates 90 years of Mickey with a global celebration of his heritage, personality and status as a pop-culture icon. The campaign came to life through fashion collaborations with other true original brands, as well as engaging content and events that embrace Mickey’s impact on the past, present and future. And what a year it was!
Even though the festive is long gone, Mickey will always remain a central theme amongst retailers with new and trendy apparel in many stores.
