Project Description

Best of Lakes | 2017

Tian van Tastique celebrates with the collection 2017 his ”Wedding Gown Dirndl“ – and for the first time designs enchanting wedding gowns in vintage style.

Inspired by dreamy, moonstruck Rose Island in lake Ammersee, the couturier’s original home, his collection 2017 dazzles through its particularly romantic vein in vintage style. It worships the highly traditional-yet-modern bride who self-confidently seeks what is unusual and extraordinary, far removed from the mainstream.

Lush rose patterns on silky, shimmering cotton satin or sheer, thin voile with the finest French lace in bright golden and ivory hues are what create this typical, yet mind-boggling Bavarian-French flair for Tian van Tastique. For the collection, also traditional linen and silk fabrics were used, along with handcrafted borders, sparkling pearls and coruscating applications.

The garments glow in a delicate world of colour, as a painstakingly hand-sewn wedding dirndl, a wedding gown in a showcased vintage style, and his own paramount invention and signature piece.

The Wedding Gown Dirndl

All dirndls in the collection can be worn either as a short wedding dress, as bridal dirndl with delicately laced apron, or as a supplementary, floor-length, empire-style wedding gown made from 21 meters of the finest materials on earth.

For the groom, suitable silk vests and specially fashioned suites in vintage and in trachten styles are available on request. Couture par excellence for the most magical moment in life.

The Tian van Tastique brand…

…was established by the designer of the same name in Munich in 2009. Originally the focal point lay in evening dress wear, but the brand subsequently shifted to modernly conceived trachten and wedding wear linked with highly refined hand-craftsmanship.
