Ashley Eckstein, founder of Her Universe, has just received the magical opportunity of a lifetime, creating her very own designer pair of Minnie Mouse Ears. The actress and fashion icon just announced the news on social media, which is creating a frenzy of excitement and praise from her loyal fan base.
“In many ways, I can’t even believe I am sharing this announcement,” said Eckstein via Instagram. “Last year, Disney came to me and asked if I would be interested in designing my own pair of Minnie ears. I was shocked and in utter disbelief! I spent an entire weekend sketching ideas and the entire process has just been surreal.”
Eckstein will be joining the ranks of designer brands like Coach, Alex and Ani, Loungefly, and Harveys in creating custom Disney Parks themed designed limited-release ear hats and headbands. The collection will introduce signature elements of each designer, bringing in a personalized twist on everyone’s favorite Disney Parks fashion accessory.
Each month, new designs will be released, focusing on various themes such as attractions like Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, bridal-inspired designs, as well as Eckstein’s own look at the Star Wars universe.
The full details will become available closer to the release of each new series, which can be purchased in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts as well as the shopDisney online store and app.

In many ways, I can’t even believe I am sharing this announcement. Last year, Disney came to me and asked if I would be interested in designing my own pair of Minnie ears. I was shocked and in utter disbelief! I spent an entire weekend sketching ideas and the entire process has just been surreal! However, I don’t think it truly sank in until today when I woke up to an official press release and I’m mentioned as a designer alongside icons and iconic brands like @coach @betseyjohnson @verawanggang @heidiklum @karliekloss & more!
