London - You could be a Disney Princess. If you have a big enough wallet.

The famous expensive department store Harrods have decided to auction off their 10 Disney Princess-inspired dresses in November to raise money for the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.

The dresses were used as Christmas decoration last year and was designed by renowned fashion powers like Valentino, Versace and Marchesa. The princesses used for inspiration are Pocahontas, Princess Jasmine, Mulan, Belle, Cinderella, Tiana, Snow White, Ariel and Rapunzel.

One-of-a-kind fashion items

Mark Briggs, a director at Harrods, commented on the dresses uniqueness to the Telegraph.

"These exquisite dresses are really one-of-a-kind fashion items from some of the most celebrated and collected designers this century. They caused a huge amount of excitement when they were first showcased in the Harrods windows and we're sure fashion aficionados around the world will be thrilled with the opportunity to own something so utterly unique."

Auctioned off after D23

At the moment the dresses are on show at Disney's D23 expo in Los Angeles before heading to auction house Christie's to go under the hammer.

Clare Borthwick, a specialist at Christie's believes in the high value these dresses have. "The rarity of these items mixed with the global appeal of Disney Princesses will make these extremely sought-after, and we expect much interest from around the world".
