Uniqlo is a clothing store that first opened in Hiroshina Japan in 1984. They make clothes that transcend all categories and social groups. Uniqlo makes clothes for everyone to enjoy, going beyond age, gender, occupation, ethnicity, and other ways people are defined.
In recent years, the “Disney Project” started which used images of our beloved characters featured on Uniqlo’s items. This partnership with Uniqlo and Disney continues to grow and inspire.
I purchased two items from this store. A red ultra light down jacket with images of Mickey on the interior and a Mickey CupCake t-shirt for my daughter. This design along with a Mickey Pizza were the best-sellers at the show. Too bad they did not have women sizes, but I did see some people purchase the biggest child size to wear.
Uniqlo had special discounts for D23 Expo attendees. You can purchase these items within the next few weeks at the stores and online but at retail prices.
I was also excited to learn that a new Uniqlo is opening up in my area this Fall in Torrance, CA.
Fun Fact about the Uniqlo Booth
Over 200 artists were given the task of creating a unique Disney-inspired artwork. These art pieces then became the inspiration for many of the t-shirts that Uniqlo sell in their Magic for All line. Here are some photos of their magical booth at D23 Expo 2015.
