From today until April 20th MoMu celebrates Minnie Mouse, one of its most iconic figures at our museum!

Since her first appearance in Steamboat Willie (1928) as Mickey Mouse’s love interest, the public have taken Minnie to heart. Minnie is a muse for many designers and has inspired fashion collections and catwalks from Paris to New York.

The installation Maison Minnie Mouse in the hallway of the MoMu celebrates Minnie Mouse as Disney’s best-loved muse and fashion icon. Five young designers who have graduated from Belgian fashion colleges were asked to design a new look for Minnie. The five designers who gave free reign to their creativity are Damien Ravn, Doriane Van Overeem, Emmanuelle Lebas, KRJST and Minju Kim.
