Following the swathe of new fashion partners assembled for The Powerpuff Girls in 2017, Turner’s Cartoon Network today adds another great collaboration to the portfolio – this time with international children’s wear trade fair, Pitti Bimbo. The event kicks off today and marks one of the first celebrations of the iconic Powerpuff Girls’ 20th Anniversary.

Each designer has created a capsule collection inspired by the super-cute, super-fierce, superhero sisters, with items ranging from t-shirts and dresses to handbags and accessories.
Johanne Broadfield, VP of Cartoon Network Enterprises EMEA said: “The Powerpuff Girls is one of the most enduring Cartoon Network brands of all time and continues to resonate strongly with fans across the globe. It’s also proved to be a brand that inspires designers and we’re excited to be partnering with Pitti Bimbo to cement the girls as fashion icons for 2018 and beyond.”
