Snoopy & Belle in Fashion will feature the ‘Peanuts’ characters in designer costumes.

Beloved beagles Snoopy and Belle will be donning their very own designer outfits at this upcoming exhibit in Brookfield Place just in time for New York Fashion Week—which goes from Sept. 7-14 this year—according to a press release. 

The 10-inch vinyl Peanuts dolls are the centerpieces of this international exhibit called Snoopy & Belle in Fashion, opening on Sept. 8. Snoopy and Belle will be wearing costumes created by Oscar de la Renta, Monse, and Paul Tazewell—costume designer for Hamilton.

Oscar de la Renta’s outfits include Belle wearing a Resort 2018 black and white organza jasmine embroidered tulle gown with a corded bow, accompanied by Snoopy in a double-breasted pinstripe suit; Monse’s costume is inspired by the beagles’ noses with a black and white polka-dotted cold-shoulder dress on Belle and a silk-blend crepe jacket with black and white-striped trousers; and Paul Tazewell’s designs are exact replicas of the costumes worn by Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton in the Broadway show.

“Snoopy and Belle have been fashion icons for decades, and we’re very excited to bring their internationally beloved style—which has inspired the greatest designers of our time—to the fans who love them most, right here in the U.S.,” Melissa Menta, producer of the exhibit and senior vice president at Peanuts Worldwide, said in a statement.

Visitors can download the Snoopy & Belle in Fashion app to receive insider information about the history of the brand, designers, and a chance to vote for their favorite outfits. Plus, there is a photo booth and Snapchat and Instagram filters.

The Snoopy & Belle in Fashion exhibit has traveled around the country and Brookfield Place will be its last stop of the U.S. tour. It will be on display through Oct. 1. Brookfield Place is open to the public daily, 8am-10pm.
