Later this year a new Princess will be hosting meet and greets in the Disney Parks. Princess Elena from Disney Channel’s “Elena of Avalor” will appear in the Magic Kingdom beginning in August and at Disney California Adventure this fall.
The Disney Parks Blog recently revealed the inspiration for the beautiful ball gown that the new princess will be wearing for her upcoming meet and greet.
The beautiful ruby off-the-shoulder dress with floral prints was designed by Layana Aguilar, a fan-favorite contestant on “Project Runway” and “Project Runway All Stars.” The Brazilian born and raised designer created a dress to represent all of the rich and colorful cultures and folklore from Latin America.
“Designing a dress for a Disney princess is a dream come true for me and the proudest moment of my career so far. And as a mother, I am so excited to introduce my kids to ‘Elena of Avalor,’” said Layana.
“Elena of Avalor” will premiere on the Disney Channel on August 1st.
