The Soumaya Museum exhibits The Disney Gala: Celebrating Animation in Style, an exhibition that celebrates 100 years of The Walt Disney through creations by Mexican designers inspired by the films.
The designers who worked on this collection are: Adriana Macías, Alexia Ulibarri, Anuar Layon, Armando Takeda, Benito Santos, Daniel Herranz, Diego Zúñiga, Macario Jiménez, Pink Magnolia, Vero Solís and Vero Díaz.
Each designer made a collection inspired by a Disney story:

Armando Takeda was based on Snow White, showing the magic of elegance and modernity in his collection.
Benito Santos used Frozen to create incredible romantic and elegant designs using the pastel blue color as a base.
Daniel Herranz was inspired by Fantasia, a movie with several characters where Mickey is the protagonist. His collection consists of different types of fabrics, models, colors, styling and performances.
Diego Zúñiga created a collection inspired by Hercules with oversized, layered, loose and comfortable pieces.
Macario Jiménez worked in collaboration with Swarovski to create a collection inspired by The Lion King, in which you can see colorful bugs and the nuances of the jungle.
Pink Magnolia was inspired by Disney’s most recent film, Wish, to create designs with metallic and sequin elements.
