Since this year’s Fall/Winter Collection is coming a little later than usual, it’s more of a Holiday Collection… but it’s not your Oma’s Holiday Dirndl Collection! My inspiration for this one comes from the dark and eerie legend of Krampus, St. Nicholas’s counterpart that comes to visit the homes of naughty children on the eve of December 6th and either leaves them a stick in their shoe or if they were really “wicked” take them away to his lair.
I used darker colors with a pop of bright red-raspberry to bring Krampus to life in the dirndl styles.
I also incorporated fur, spikes & chains into the trimming and then some very unusual fabrics such as alligator vinyl, black suede, and knits to give the collection a truly unique and high fashion look.
Check out the behind the scenes video here to see a sneak peek at the looks and how we turned an unseasonable warm and sunny fall afternoon into a dark and cold winter scene
The collection will be released on November 17, 2015. But if you can’t wait until then, be sure to join the Rare Dirndl – First Looks Club on Facebook to get exclusive sneak peeks and early bird specials.
