Otis College Fashion Students at the Center of New Disney Design Series

Disney Design Challenge
Web Series Launches June 16 on Disney Style and Will Culminate in a Live Finale at D23 Expo on July 14

Students in the fashion design program at Otis College of Art and Design are front and center in the first season of Disney Design Challenge, a new series for Disney Style. In this challenge, student designers are asked to create clothing lines inspired by Disney’s Frozen in the distinctive fashion styles of Los Angeles. The series, which was recently featured in, is presented by Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. 


The top three designers in the challenge will debut their final looks at the D23 Expo in a special live episode on July 14. The winners will have their work produced by online retailer Nineteenth Amendment and will receive scholarships towards their final year at Otis College. 

Students in the fashion design program at Otis College of Art and Design become educated and practice in all aspects of the design process as they work towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Fashion Design. Each year, students are paired with industry mentors that guide them through the design process of one-of-a-kind garments in couture, sportswear, swim, active wear, costume, and more.
