Disney’s Pirate Fairy Gets Designer Treatment From Christian Siriano
Are you a fan of Project Runway and Disney Fairies? Then you’re in for a sure treat when the newest addition to the Disney Fairies family hit stores on April, 1st, 2014. Famed designer Christian Siriano has teamed up with Disney to design the new Pirate Fairy Zarina. I was already excited about the release and now I’m even more excited. My mom who wouldn’t watch animated movies unless her grand children are around loves Christian Siriano so she’s excited about see this as well. Here’s some more information about the partnership between Disney and Siriano.
I loved the challenge of this project. I haven’t designed for an animated character before, and I’m excited to take my skills into Zarina’s world. She’s a unique and new character and I wanted to help make her memorable and iconic. Disney characters are everlasting and I’m so happy as a young designer to help create a bit of Disney history. – Christian Siriano , Zarina Costume Designer
Zarina is a powerful character, able to run a Pirate Ship and we wanted her to be a strong, adventurous fairy. Christian is phenomenal at creating bold, amazing silhouettes that truly celebrate a woman for who she is – powerful, feminine and fierce. He was the perfect choice. –Peggy Holmes, Director of THE PIRATE FAIRY
