Disney Princess Designer Collection: Concept Art, Pamphlet Scans, & D23 Exclusive Cinderella  

From StitchKingdom:

Scheduled to make their debut at the 2011 Disney D23 Expo, the Disney Store exclusive Princess Designer Collection brings haute couture to the world of Disney Princesses. Designed by Disney Store artist, the collection consists of all ten princesses, styled and dressed as they might appear walking down the runway at the next great fashion show.

The dolls will be released on a weekly basis, beginning on August 22, at which point, all of the dolls should be on display at local Disney Store locations. We are told they will retail for $59.50 each and, according to the literature now being distributed at Disney Store locations, they will be released in varying edition sizes and will each be available in extremely limited supply. As a bonus, Disney D23 Expo attendees will have the opportunity to pre-purchase the entire collection (approximately $600).

There will also be a limited edition 10 piece pin set featuring representation of the collection. It will be limited to an edition size of 150 sets and each set will retail for $200.

D23 Exclusive: 25th Anniversary Silver Cinderella Doll Box
D23 Exclusive: 25th Anniversary Silver Cinderella
Retailing for $59.50
Limited Edition of 250

As far as pictures of the dolls go (none have yet appeared online), I think the first we'll be seeing are going to be fan photographs from the D23 Expo where the dolls are premiering on August 19th. And three days later, on August 22, the first doll will go on sale anyway!

And the word from Disney Store Cast Members is that the dolls will also be coming with a tote bag, so there's more bang for your buck!

I would love to have one of these, but like always, i'm pretty sure that I'll never see them selling here (South America), only US or Europe...:(

GRABBY HANDS. Oh how I wish they'd be released in the UK. Not getting my hopes up though :(

Baaaah I hate that I'm a D23 member but I can't afford to go to the Expo!

beautiful! I can't wait til they arrive in stores!

Wait, can you get them online or only in the store? I can't wait to get the Jasmine one!
Abigail: Kingdom Hearts Squaremdmbrightside on August 9th, 2011 08:46 pm (UTC)
They're probably going to be like the Blu-Ray Release Limited Edition Dolls - you'll be able to pre-order them either from your local Disney Store (which will get a limited number in) or from the online Disney Store. I keep casting a wary eye to how "extremely limited" these dolls are, so I hope they don't all sell out too quickly.

They all look so pretty! *v*

Well I'll be at D23 AND at the World of Disney store possibly on the 22nd ~~~

Please do :D

WOW!!! I want to buy them!!!
Christina Joychristinadagood on August 10th, 2011 10:28 pm (UTC)
The sort of sad, yet awesome part is that we don't know which dolls are being released at what order 'til the morning on those Mondays (and that's knowing as a Cast Member at the Disney store). They'll also be selling other things aside from the dolls which all look awesome! I need to buy everything before I leave my job.

Thank you for posting the 'Princess Couture' graphic from tumblr. I own thePRINCESSGROTTO and I was thinking of this community and what an awesome banner it would make when I made it :)
Abigail: AURORA OMG!mdmbrightside on August 10th, 2011 11:45 pm (UTC)
Well, what do you know! I don't know why I'm always surprised when people who have Tumblrs also have LJ accounts, but I am XD

You made a really beautiful graphic that captures a lot of the grace and poise in the new line - it would work perfectly as a header! I actually started following your Tumblr through it's RSS feed today :)

I'm excited to see what other products Disney's making for the collection - so far I've heard shirts, accessories (jewelry? silk scarves? handbags?), and stationary. But heck, they've all got us over a barrel just waiting to see what the dolls look like!
Christina Joy: ♫ tlm → arielchristinadagood on August 10th, 2011 11:48 pm (UTC)
Haha, no problem! I love tumblr! What's your tumblr? I'll follow you from my personal haha.

Yeah, it's awesome. I'm trying to see if I can sneak a peak at the dolls tomorrow.
Christina Joy: ♫ disney stock → earschristinadagood on August 10th, 2011 11:49 pm (UTC)
I've been wondering for weeks when they were gonna release the concept art images. We were sort of 'sworn to secrecy' until it was going to be released via D23.
Abigail: Kingdom Hearts Squaremdmbrightside on August 11th, 2011 03:20 am (UTC)
That's a long time to keep a cool secret under wraps! The official Disney sites are still doing print-only press releases while all the unofficial sites are posting the concept art and pamphlet scans like mad (the pin art I don't think we were supposed to see for a long, long time). Still, all this early anticipation has to be good for sales!

And if you do sneak a peek at the dolls, be sure to tell us what you think!
Abigailmdmbrightside on August 11th, 2011 03:04 am (UTC)
My Tumblr is mdmbrightside, but I haven't tumbled anything yet ^_^;
Christina Joy: ♫ tlm → arielchristinadagood on August 12th, 2011 12:12 am (UTC)
Awesome! I'm Christinajoyyy and thePRINCESSGROTTO, respectively.

Btw, I managed to take a quick peek at some dolls today. My favorite is Ariel (and not just because she's my favorite princess), but her eyeshadow is gorgeous!!

The boxes look all like the Cinderella one in this post, with each different princess and there's a plastic case under the slip cover with a stand hold each princess up.

So beautiful. I'm trying to buy mine before they release them haha. I could only hope!
Abigail: CGI Arielmdmbrightside on August 12th, 2011 04:01 am (UTC)
Whelp, I'm jealous. I'm chomping at the bit, I want to see them so bad! Would you say the dolls live up to the hype?

I can almost see the box - I'd guess it would look like the other Limited Edition doll boxes with less decoration. Is there any new information on the height or number of dolls?

I'm pretty curious about how the dolls will be sold, too. If people want to buy them from the actual store, will they just have to find out online which doll is being sold that week and then call their Disney Store to place an order? Will the dolls actually be at the store, or will it be a pre-order? Confusion!

This might be a bit late but I'm guessing from the oldest movie to the newest one?
Selenia: batbvelle on August 11th, 2011 01:21 am (UTC)
Thank you so very, very much for this!
Do you know if the same doll released at the store will be available online the same week? Like if Jasmine is released on the week of the 22nd at stores, will she be released also on disneystore.com, or are the online releases different from the store releases? I'm so sorry if I missed this.
Abigail: Kingdom Hearts Squaremdmbrightside on August 11th, 2011 03:12 am (UTC)
You're really welcome!

From everything I've read, I believe the dolls are going to be available at the retail stores and online store simultaneously. I'm sure they're going to detail exactly how this will work during the D23 expo, before the dolls are to be sold or up for pre-order.

Don't worry - I'm on the case, and will report any and all information I hear as I hear it!

singinthestreetsinginthestreet on August 12th, 2011 10:20 pm (UTC)
I'm really curious as to how tall these girls will be... I hope at least 16" but based on the price I'm just not sure...
genforever246genforever246 on August 13th, 2011 10:01 am (UTC)
It might be a little late to comment but I love the cute 50's feel of Cinderella thanks to her pony tail. Actually, this entire collection feels fifties thanks to the style of concept art.
Abigail: Kingdom Hearts Squaremdmbrightside on August 13th, 2011 06:09 pm (UTC)
You hit the nail on the head! All the dolls were designed with 50s-60s looks in mind. I'm starting to think they saw how popular the Dress Patterns print from The Art Of The Disney Princess was and thought, Yeah, that could be a collection :D

genforever246genforever246 on August 14th, 2011 02:55 am (UTC)
Just a question but what is the Art of the Disney Princess thing? I haven't heard of it before.
Abigailmdmbrightside on August 14th, 2011 03:07 am (UTC)
It's a book where artists were commissioned by Disney to re-imagine the Princesses. A lot of interesting art came out of it:

Here are some scans of it from the community:
