Disney on Broadway has teamed up with the Fashion Institute of Technology to give students from around the world the opportunity to create re-imagined designs for some of Disney’s beloved female characters.

Ten FIT students from the U.S., China, South Korea, India, and the Dominican Republic have been selected as finalists in the design challenge, which celebrates the 25th anniversary of Disney on Broadway and approaching 75th anniversary of the college.

The students, who are designing contemporary outfits for some familiar characters seen on the Broadway stage, will have their garments on display in an exhibition at the Art and Design Gallery located in FIT’s Pomerantz Art and Design Center September 19–October 6.
