Over the weekend I visited Disney’s Aladdin the musical in London. The show was at the stunning Prince Edward Theatre & is shown at 2:30pm Thursday & Saturday then again in the evening at 7:30pm Monday – Saturday. It was my first musical & I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it. The show was full of energy, very talented individuals & luxurious costumes, the multi-million pound production filled the auditorium with laughter and colour, with the on-going work behind the scenes being quite incredible. Heading backstage, I was able to see the incredible work which goes into each production, and without spoiling any of the magic of the production, you can see how detailed and ornate every aspect of the show is, even the costumes. I even saw Jade Ewen, who plays Jasmine, having her make up touched up, but sadly I didn’t get to meet Trevor Dion Nicholas, whose Genie was the highlight of the production and made the audience roar with laughter.
I left the production inspired by the silk fabrics and jewelled tones Aladdin wore in his Prince Ali Ababwa costume. I picked up a souvenir bomber, something I have had my eyes on for a while, & incorporated the fabrics I had seen in the show into this piece. This featured jacket was the perfect option for channelling the inspiration taken from the show and is the staple item I had been looking to incorporate into my wardrobe for some time. As fashion trends evolve, I find taking inspiration from my surroundings a fun and creative way to further my personal style. So you guys can see where I took this inspiration from I have attached some detailed shots from the costumes below.
The hit musical is a must see for a fun filled evening out with friends or a date with that worldie, and is so conveniently positioned between Covent Garden & Leicester Square tube stations. To find out more information on Disney Aladdin The Musical click the link – HERE
