A few of Disney’s darlings are taking to the virtual runway in New York City, as Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Snow White and Tiana are appearing in the holiday display lighting up the windows of the Barneys New York flagship store on Madison Avenue.
According to an announcement from global visual technologies company Christie, the world of high fashion is coming to life in a holiday extravaganza on multiple configurations of 425 Christie MicroTiles filling the windows at Barneys. In a partnership between The Walt Disney Company, Barneys New York and Christie, the “Electric Holiday” display is a multimedia presentation highlighted by a digitally-animated, moving-art short featuring Disney characters as they do their little turn on the catwalk in original designer clothes.
Following the world premiere on Nov. 14, the eight-minute art short will continue to loop throughout the day on the window display, which will be up until Jan. 3, 2013.
“We are thrilled to be working with the experts at Christie on Disney Electric Holiday Windows at Barneys New York,” said Lylle Breier, SVP of world wide special events, Walt Disney Studios. “Disney and Barneys wanted to create a visually stunning window display unlike any other … Utilizing 565 square feet of MicroTiles and 50 million pixels we are able to create a brilliant light and video show that will light up Madison Ave. throughout the holidays.”
