A Disney princess superfan gave her favourite characters a modern makeover – when she got her pals to reimagine a world where Disney princesses became business tycoons.
Graphic Designer Karley Garza, 30, from WHERE, California, gave her friends a fun day out at a photoshoot after deciding to pull the stunt in a bid to inspire women.
The graphic designer, organised this gathering with her friends giving them complete creative freedom with their outfits – the only stipulation was their princess had to be reimaginaed as a powerful businesswoman.
She wants women to shake things up and believes that a simple act like throwing a suit on Cinderella can have a snowball effect
Karley said: “The fierceness of a businesswoman combined with the grace of a princess would make someone unstoppable.”
The classic line-up starts with Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Tiana, Rapunzel, Elsa, and Anna.
Karley added: “I was simply in awe of all of the women in my group, they’re my ride or die team.
“We’re consistently building each other up, collaborating and bouncing new ideas off of each other. Anytime I’m in their presence, it’s magic.
“There is a lot of power in these characters, for example, practising kindness; I believe in looking for role models in the things that you love.’
“We wanted to say, ‘forget the glass slippers… I’m coming for that glass ceiling!’”
