Move over, Mickey. London Fashion Week is going to be all about Minnie Mouse this season.

The Spring 2013 shows will mark the debut of "Minnie Mouse Must-Haves," a collection of one-off Minnie-inspired creations from top British designers like Giles Deacon, Richard Nicoll, Katie Hillier, Michael van der Ham, Piers Atkinson, Bunney, Terry de Havilland, and Husam el Odeh with Luke Hersheson, Vogue U.K. reports.

The anything-but-mousey pieces (we're picturing polka dots and sculptural shoulders) will be shown at London Fashion Week before being auctioned off on eBay, with proceeds going to the Fashion Arts Foundation charity.

What's more, the boys at Meadham Kirchhoff are devoting their entire Spring 2013 collection to the Disney damsel, who is also said to be inspiring a range of beauty items.

"Minnie Mouse and her unique style continue to inspire fans across the world," The Walt Disney Company fashion and home vice president Marc Low says. "We're thrilled to collaborate with such visionaries to create these one-off designs. Surpassing trends, Minnie Mouse's iconic silhouette, signature bows ,and polka dots always remain in style, which is why she is as relevant today as the day she first appeared on the fashion scene. London Fashion Week is the perfect stage for Disney, one of the world's largest apparel brands, to put a spotlight on Minnie Mouse."

Disney has also lined up a princess-inspired beauty collection for Sephora and a holiday collaboration with Barneys New York. What can we say? It really is a small world after all.
