Christmas came early to London department store Harrods today with the launch of the shopping emporium's fantastical festive windows.
The Disney-themed display, which will remain in situ until the end of the Christmas period, features much-loved traditional characters like Rapunzel and, Cinderella alongside newer cartoon folk such as Mulan and Tiana from The Princess and the Frog.
Each of the 10 lavish window dressings was created by a different fashion designer and not surprisingly, given Harrod's reputation for wealth, glamour and opulence, they include some of fashion's biggest names, such as Missoni, Versace, Escada and Roberto Cavalli.
