A commentated fashion performance
In close collaboration with students at the Ebensee Fashion School, the designer of baroque total-concepts, Raja Schwahn-Reichmann, is designing a collection of down-to-earth clothing relating to any kind of work that is situated in a tension between functional and experimental, with a personal reinterpretation of traditional costume (including button-through dress, dirndl, summer dirndl worn without a blouse, weatherproof cape in outdoor quality for the lake and mountains), partly using metal semi-bodice and timber surrounding the body, also with especially flowing robe-ideas.
Thanks to the artist’s personal connection to a textile specialist from Ebensee’s partner town, Prato (Florence), exquisite fabrics from there were also able to be employed.
Under the motto, ‘properly dressed’, the author, Bodo Hell, takes care of the literary design, commentating and moderating of the fashion show, which can be seen on both Sundays during the festival with the participation of students from the Ebensee Fashion School.
