Cartoon Chic. Popular 90s Characters Dressed To Kill For Fashion Week by Swagger and Michele Moricci.
Swagger New York teamed up with illustrator and designer Michele Moricci to create a fantasy fashion world consisting of pop culture cartoon characters clad in some of today's hippest fashions to honor the beginning of Mercedes Benz 2013 New York's Fashion Week.
This is not the first time we've seen cartoon characters in couture. In the August 2007 issue of Harper's Bazaar, The Simpsons posed in couture, we saw SHREK posing in a fashion editorial for Vman magazine and Elle Espana put Disney characters in famous design wear in April 2010.

Over a couple weeks, the collaboration resulted in the following six characters wearing specific designer’s A/W 2013 threads as they attend that very designer's show (e.g. Lisa Simpson is in Marc Jacobs for the Marc show).

SailorMoon in Rodarte

Daria in Prabal Gurung

Captain Planet in Hood By Air
