Leicester Square hosts exhibition of props and costumes from Disney’s Cinderella
LONDON, March 23, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Leicester Square will be sparkling this spring when it hosts a pop-up exhibition dedicated to displaying costumes and props from Disney's new live action film of the classic fairy tale, Cinderella. Cinderella: The Exhibition opens on March 21 st at Leicester Square Gardens and will run until 10 th April. The exhibition will be free of charge, but tickets will be required for entry. For more information, see LondonTown.com, where you can also find the latest details on cheap hotels in London, with real-time updates on booking, prices and availability.

The Cinderella exhibition will feature 22 remarkable costumes and hundreds of original props offering people the opportunity to celebrate the film's British roots first hand. Filmed in the UK, costumes were made by renowned British costume designer, Oscar-winning Sandy Powell, and the film was directed by fellow Kenneth Branagh. Powell's costumes, as worn by the all-star cast including Lily James (Cinderella), Helena Bonham Carter (the Fairy Godmother), Cate Blanchett (Lady Tremaine) and Richard Madden (the Prince) will be proudly on display for all to see, housed within the recreated sets.

The exhibition is presented by Swarovski who provided Sandy Powell with over 1.7 million crystals for the spellbinding costumes to bring added sparkle to Cinderella's magical world. At the heart of the exhibition will be Cinderella's iconic slipper. The dazzling slipper, which plays such a pivotal role in the fairy tale, was hewn from solid Swarovski crystal and features 221 facets in a light-reflecting Crystal Blue Aurora Borealis coating. Powell worked closely with Swarovski technicians at the headquarters of the crystal house in Austria to create the magnificent slipper. “I'm looking forward to people being able to see the behind the scenes magic that went into the creation of Cinderella,” says Branagh. “Sandy Powell has allowed unlimited access to her creative process from the initial sketches to the final creations, including the most iconic costume of all – Cinderella's incredibly beautiful blue ball gown.”
