The collection is called 'Dollhouse'. The inspiration did not only come from my own childhood and dolls but also from sexy girls, showgirls, Hollywood, America, from the good times. We're doing a wonderful cooperation with Disney. It rarely happens that one piece of clothing gives me the inspiration for a whole collection. But this time it was an old t-shirt of my mum from the '80s. She wore it when she was pregnant with me. That t-shirt is my absolute favourite piece of clothing. It is turquoise, light blue, pinkish, typical candy colours, typical '80s, loosely cut with a Mickey Mouse on it."

Not only in my own growing up. I was a loud girl. I was heavy into punk and grunge in my teenage days. That translates into leopard patterns, sometimes Mickey Mouses, and bright colours. I wore those from head to toe. Colourful, loud, crazy - that was the most important."

- Story Text:Austrian designer Lena Hoschek presented her autumn/winter collection "Dollhouse" on Tuesday (January 17) at the Berlin Fashion Week.
Inspired by a t-shirt her mum wore when she was pregnant with Lena, the designer took to the bubble-gum pink, leopard print and glitter of the '80s as well as wide swinging dresses known form the '50s.
Many of the wide-swinging dresses and skirts made from cotton, jersey and lamÃ©, with names such as "Confetti Dress" or "Candy Dress", also exude charm with polka dots, little hearts and specially made lipstick prints.
"For me the '80s and the '90s with their grunge music were strongly connected to girl power. Not only in my own growing up. I was a loud girl. I was heavy into punk and grunge in my teenage days. That translates into leopard patterns, sometimes Mickey Mouses, and bright colours. I wore those from head-to-toe. Colourful, loud, crazy, that was the most important," Hoschek told Reuters TV.
In cooperation with the Walt Disney company, Hoschek's collection also shows Mickey Mouse prints on some of the dresses.
This season the designer and her team put much attention to playful frills and oversized meshes as well as feminine silhouette. A slight hint of "like a virgin", on the other hand, is suggested by the bridal gown strewn with embroidered hearts. To complete the girly look, the designer also created sexy glitter pumps.
