Well this was something special. When are you ever going to see a show like this ?
Disney’s Cinderella Exhibition Presented By Swarovski is the official exhibition of costumes and props from the magical new movie Cinderella, which is directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden and Helena Bonham Carter.
The tour takes you on a journey through five multi-sensory zones including a Cinderella heritage gallery, Cinderella’s home, Fairy Godmother’s Transformation, the Grand Ballroom, and a Modern Day Princess Gallery which introduces the beautiful Lily James as Cinderella.
Straight from the movie set are over 100 props from the film and over 30 exquisite costumes designed by the Academy Award-winning costume designer Sandy Powell. Finally we take you ‘Behind the Magic’ with Swarovski, who provided over 1.7 million crystals for the costumes in the movie to add extra sparkle to Cinderella’s magical world. Swarovski also produced the iconic glass slippers, created from solid crystal, which were designed by Sandy Powell.
The Cinderella Exhibition Presented By Swarovski is a unique behind-the-scenes experience that I really enjoyed. The pictures that were part of heritage gallery came from Disney’s vaults – when do you think you will ever see anything like it again.
I loved seeing all the new costumes and props for the new film. I also like walking through the pumpkin and coming out of the carriage. That was a nice touch. But my favourite was the glass slippers. They looked beautiful. And you could buy your own for £1395 ! Out of my price range. This stunning free pop-up exhibition will be in the gardens of London’s Leicester Square for a limited time only!
And I really hope they do something similar when Disney release Beauty And The Beast in 2017 !
