Disney Teams Up With Karen Walker For Mickey Mouse's 90th Birthday
In honour of Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday on the 18th November, Karen Walker and The Walt Disney Company have collaborated to create an exclusive, Mickey-inspired collection of t-shirts, sweatshirts, eyewear, jewellery, accessories and homeware.
The Disney x Karen Walker collection, available globally from the 7th November, features pieces that embrace the fun-loving and adventurous spirit of both Karen Walker and Mickey.
“When Disney approached us to help celebrate Mickey’s 90th, it was an immediate and unequivocal yes,” says Karen Walker. “Mickey is a true icon and it’s a great honour for me to have an opportunity to interpret his personality, which I’ve always loved, through my own lens.”

Throughout his 90 years, Mickey has inspired many of the greatest creative minds, from Roy Lichtenstein to Andy Warhol to Keith Haring and Damien Hirst.
“I’ve always been inspired by Mickey and wanted to present a fresh take on his character. Both Mickey and our Runaway Girl have an inherent sense of adventure, so the collection is a nod to the heritage of both Karen Walker and Disney,” says Karen.
Kylie Watson-Wheeler, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of The Walt Disney Company Australia and New Zealand adds: “Mickey’s 90th is a global celebration of Mickey’s heritage, personality and status as a pop-culture icon and we are delighted that Karen Walker is collaborating with us to mark this special occasion.”
