Move over Project Runway, because Disney is trying its hand at finding the next great American fashion designer.

The Mickey Mouse house has launched a new design competition with the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, and it all revolves around the film Frozen.

In its first season, students created apparel inspired by the movie's lead characters for a chance to have their work created and sold on the online platform Nineteenth Amendment, which hosts independent designers. The students were given a specific Frozen character and a theme inspired by Southern California style, including "beach boho," "Hollywood glam," and "downtown chic."

WWD reports that the 11 winning pieces will retail from $100 to $300. You won't be able to buy them until July 14, but we think they'll be worth waiting for.

“The story of Frozen is known the world over, and the collaboration with Otis School of Design allowed us to create new looks inspired by its beloved characters through a Millennial fashion lens, connecting with our fans in a totally unexpected and elevated way," said Josh Silverman, executive vice president of global licensing at Disney, to WWD. "This collaboration also gave us the opportunity to provide a platform for young design talent."

While you can't buy the designs yet, you can watch as they're created. In order to show fans more about how the competition ran, Disney is launching a four-part video series on the process, and the first episode is already out.

Congratulations to the winners!
