ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Pretty pinup girls were poised in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle for the second annual "Pinup Parade in the Park" group photo at Disneyland. Pinup Girl Clothing, a vintage-inspired apparel company whose mission is creating American-made "Couture for Every Body," hosted the happy event to create a fun, social environment for fellow Disney-aficionados and Pinup Girl Clothing (affectionately known as "PUG") fans to meet and greet at.
This fantastical event geared towards women came about two years ago when shared social media images of woman wearing PUG clothing at this famous theme park began being posted in abundance. Recognizing that they shared the same devotion and love for fairytales and fantasy with their fans, Pinup Girl Clothing dreamed up the idea of an organized event to bring everyone together to celebrate. The first event in 2013 was so well received by fans that an immediate realization occurred that the "fairy tale" theme was one which many women sought out to indulge in.
On May 30, 2014, one of Pinup Girl Clothing's house brands, Pinup Couture, launched their exclusive summer "Fairytale Fantasy Collection" line. Comprised of dresses and skirts featuring an assortment of whimsical prints to capture any princess's fancy, the line featured pieces and exclusive art by renowned illustrator Stephanie Buscema (http://www.stephaniebuscema.com/) as well as art by in-house designer Micheline Pitt (http://michelinepitt.com). The Pinup Girl Boutique, located in the heart of Burbank California's Magnolia Park district, hosted an event in celebration of the launch, including an art show featuring Buscema's original and Fairytale Fantasy pieces. The collection brought in droves of fans, creating one of the most successful events in the Boutique's history.
The launch of the Fairytale Fantasy Collection coincided with the second Pinup Parade in the Park event. Hosted the Sunday after the launch to give fans an opportunity to wear their new frocks to the park, over 1000 goody bags were made in preparation that included special buttons, stickers and a discount coupon code for online shopping. Pinup Girl Clothing's Instagram page (@pinupgirlclothing) held a contest encouraging attendees to wear outfits consisting of Pinup Girl house brand designs to create their own unique #PugDisneyBounding look (Disneybounding is a style trend in which an outfit is put together to resemble a famous Disney character).
Pinup Girl Clothing enjoys and values interaction with their customers, and as such, the event had a scheduled "meet up" program for the entire day. These meet ups consist of group photo opportunities, Disneyland trivia contests with gift card prizes, and the chance to mingle with Pinup Girl employees. The meet ups were held in favorite spots such as the Tea Cup ride and the famous retro Tiki Room, ending with a grand finale trip around the park on the famous Disneyland Railroad in the evening.
The reception to this June's event was overwhelmingly positive, with well over 1000 fans participating throughout the day. Pinup Girl Clothing hopes one day to collaborate with Disney to open up a whole new world of possibilities, but until then, we have the next Pinup Parade in the Park to look forward to on November 2, 2014 (more information can be found here (https://www.facebook.com/events/1443815552543157/?ref=5). So dust off those mouse ears and come join Team PUG for more Disney fun this fall!
