Disney, the global entertainment icon that has captivated audiences for a century, is celebrating its remarkable journey with the Create 100 auction in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, established in 1980. This unique international event commemorates Disney’s 100th anniversary by auctioning one-of-a-kind pieces created by talented artists, designers, and overall creatives. Visionaries like Taofeek Abijako, Marc Jacobs, Virgil Abloh, and Tommy Hilfiger have all contributed items solely for this auction. Fans across the globe can bid on any of the items, ranging from the Black Is King catsuit worn by Beyoncé, the Sorcerer’s Apprentice sculpture by Virgil Abloh, or the Abijako’s Head Of State Winnie The Pooh top.
Each piece is made to embody what Disney has meant to each contributor to the auction. Other contributors include designers Nigo and Daniel Roseberry of Schiaparelli, Cactus Plant Flea Market, Pierpaio Piccioli, creative director of Valentino, and designers Carlos Vives and Gusi.
