After studying apparel design in Vienna, Tyrol-natives Anette Prechtl and Sandra Thaler entered the fashion world with a bang by winning the Pierre Lang Fashion Award with their first collection in 2000. Their label, Elfenkleid, was subsequently represented on the catwalks of Paris, Istanbul, Zürich and Berlin, winning several more awards in the process. In 2003, the Elfenkleid store opened in the Margaretenstrasse. As the name suggests, Elfenkleid is all about long, billowy robes with a timeless, fairylike quality. Cuts are straight-lined and very feminine. Hanging on racks against the wall and arranged by color, the clothes stand out in the shop's sparsely furnished all-white showroom. Alongside seasonal prêt-à-porter collections and a "Black & White" couture line, Elfenkleid also specializes in bridal wear. Anette and Sandra always use high-quality fabrics from European suppliers. All clothes are designed in Elfenkleid's in-house studio space. Show lessRead more
