TRADITIONAL COUTURE: FOLKLORIC HERITAGE COSTUMES PHOTOGRAPHED BY GREGOR HOHENBERG. Tillmann Prufer. Die Gestalten Verlag, Berlin, 2015. 320 pp. with 316 col. ills. 34 x 26 cm. ISBN 9783899555721 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: Traditional clothing represents the regions where it is produced along with their cultures and handcraft. Its creativity and longevity is inspiring high fashion designers of today and tomorrow. Traditional clothing is essentially haute couture. Made with high quality fabrics and elaborate workmanship, it embodies cultural heritage and style. Encompassing a surprising variety of garments, it represents premioum handcraft, an awareness of tradition, a sense of belonging, and an affinity to one's homeland. At the same time, folkloric clothing is inspiring some of today and tomorrow's most ambitious and radical fashion designers. In Traditional Couture, photographer Gregor Hohenberg succeeds in building a visual bridge between the outmoded and the avant-garde in German folkloric fashion. He portrays the individuals, young and old alike, who wear traditional attire in all the regions of his homeland, as well as their surroundings. Furthermore, he depicts the distinctive garments in all their glorious detail: pearls, seams, embroidery, and colors--all of which are completely unaffected by the seasonal influences of the fashion industry.
