From The Turner EMEA Press Release: The Powerpuff Girls Collection Unveiled at Fyodor Golan Fashion Show
Turner’s Cartoon Network and Fyodor Golan showcased today (17/02/2017) an all-new collaboration inspired by the original ambassadors of #girlpower, The Powerpuff Girls.

Fyodor and Golan said: “We grew up with The Powerpuff Girls and are still huge fans! For us, these three characters empower you to be yourself. Encompassing strength and standing up for yourself against all odds, and being overly cute at the same time. Designing with the girls in mind was really liberating and felt very naturally relevant. We love the iconic quality they come with, in the simplicity of line, colour and mood. Staring in our own The Powerpuff Girls cartoon was like a dream come true.”
