Bahamian fashion designer Theodore Elyett is working with Disney Cruise Line to give Mickey and Minnie a new look for Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point.

Located on the island of Eleuthera, Disney Lookout Cay will make its debut in June, and the two icons will have a colourful, bright, and Bahamian-inspired look thanks to Elyett.

“Inspired by the beauty of his homeland, Theodore’s creations reflect the culture and colorful hues of island life,” DCL announced in their release.

“The beauty of Mickey and Minnie’s looks are that they are literally ‘Junkanoo Fun in the Sun,’” he said. “When you talk about the print, pattern, color, texture of Junkanoo, they’ve got that.”

Elyett’s designs have been worn by Miss Universe contestants, celebrities, and brides, to cover girls, and government officials.

Here’s a peek at the new designs:

“Theodore grew up in Nassau, The Bahamas, surrounded by art and fashion. His mother owned her own sewing factory, and he started making dresses at an early age. Theodore’s designs first hit the runway when he was 13 years old, in 1998–the very year Disney Cruise Line set sail.”

DCL also revealed that Elyett will design styles for Donald and Daisy Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale. For more on the announcement, watch the video below, and head to Disney Cruise Line to find details on sailings to the new island destination.
