Theodore Elyett was surrounded by fashion and the arts when he was growing up in Nassau, Bahamas. At a young age, he began making dresses at his mother’s sewing factory. When Theodore was just thirteen years old, in 1998 (coincidentally the year Disney Cruise Line first sailed) his designs made their runway debut.

In June 2024, Theodore’s designs will debut on a new stage: Disney’s Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point. Mickey and Minnie’s Lookout Cay outfits will be a part of an array of vibrant pieces created by local artists that visitors will see and interact with throughout the private island destination.

“The beauty of Mickey and Minnie’s looks are that they are literally ‘Junkanoo Fun in the Sun,’” Theodore said in a press release. “When you talk about the print, pattern, color, texture of Junkanoo, they’ve got that.”

The designer will also create unique looks for Donald and Daisy Duck, Chip and Dale, Goofy, and Pluto. You can learn about Theodore and his inspiration for Mickey and Minnie’s Lookout Cay outfits in the video below:
