--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Peanuts Worldwide:
More than 35 of the world’s most acclaimed apparel designers have created one-of-a-kind designs for Snoopy and his fashionista sister Belle for the “Snoopy & Belle In Fashion” traveling exhibit debuting at the Cherry Creek Mall on March 17.

Melissa Menta, producer of “Snoopy & Belle In Fashion,” will provide personal guided tours of the exhibition to select media. During the tour, Melissa can offer insider background about the dolls.
For example, feature film costume designer Colleen Atwood paid homage to two of the films for which she won Oscars by transforming Snoopy into the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland and Belle into a Geisha girl from Memoirs of a Geisha.
Stetson, which has been outfitting the American west since 1865, created a casual cowboy look for the dolls while The Levi’s® Brand’s designs are inspired by their core values of equality in fashion.
Diane Von Furstenberg created the world’s smallest version of her signature wrap dress just for Belle while Betsey Johnson went wild with miniature embellishments, including pink hair, reminiscent of the designer’s own ’80s punk rocker days.
Melissa can also talk about how Snoopy and the Peanuts gang have been inspiring such popular fashion trends as zig-zag t-shirts and Joe Cool sweatshirts since the 1970s.
