Another young line who presented their A/W 08 collection at Berlin Fashion Week was Heiress. It's easy to hold your breath at the name (Oh, no. No more celebrities in fashion!) but the pair behind the line insist that its manifesto pivots on that of old hollywood. With women like Marlene Dietrich in mind, the pair seek to create frocks for ladies of realistic size and glamorous personality. Patrick Ascher and Andreas Riedle, the two designers behind the line, have the construction process take place in Germany, where haute couture trained tailors hand sew their frocks.
