During D23, director John Lasseter shared a fun new mockumentary featuring The Incredibles‘ Edna Mode. It seems the petite-but-powerful character has had a very big influence on the fashion industry, even inspiring the likes of Heidi Klum, Kendall Jenner, Zac Posen and Rachel Zoe.
“Edna hates capes…so we all hate capes,” says Heidi Klum in the video clip which shows us a brief history of Edna Mode’s fashion designs. As fans will remember, half-Japanese, half-German Edna Mode (voiced by Brad Bird himself) is the high-class fashion designer responsible for the costume designs of The Incredibles family. She has a long history of creating original custom-made outfits for superheroes since the “glory days”.
In celebration of her many achievements, the fashion world talks about how The Incredibles’ Edna Mode, a true visionary, has inspired them throughout the years, from her explosive jumpsuits to her divisive view of capes.
