Opening Ceremony Shutdown Disneyland to host their Spring 2018 Runway Show in Celebration of “The True Original” Campaign

On Wednesday, March 7th, 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. Carol Lim and Humberto Leon of Opening Ceremony showcase their new collection and reveal their Disney collaboration inspired by True Original, Mickey’ Mouse. The show featured a half-time show with cast-members from Mickey’s Soundsational Parade. Ezra Rubin a.k.a. Kingdom, a longtime friendof 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. The collection, which includes men’s, women’s, and unisex pieces, puts a luxe spin on classic Disney iconography. For womenswear, Opening Ceremony reinterprets vintage Mickey Mouse art, transforming the playful character into unconventional prints on silk dresses, taffeta pants and poplin gowns. Other pieces draw from Mickey’s iconic silhouette: a jacquard skirt features Mickey-esque black-and-white-sequins, while the circular sleeves of a poplin dress evoke his famous ears. Denim pants and jackets twist vintage Disneyland souvenirs, embroidering the names of the cities the parks call home alongside the OC logo. Select items from the Mickey collaboration are now available for sale at, and Opening Ceremony stores, while the remaining ready-to-wear looks will hit stores in November. Guests in attendance included Chance the Rapper, Diplo, Maya Rudolph, Jamie Chung, Justine Skye, Laverne Cox, Olivia Holt, Sabrina Carpenter, Shaun Ross & more.
