The Fashion Designer

I wanted to become a radiantly glamorous, pompous fashion prince who would enchant the world with his magic. That was my goal. I decided to live my fairy tale or, should we say, make my life a fairy tale – make my vision come true.

Harald Glööckler has his roots in the “Haute Couture“. At the tender age of six he designed his first dress for his aunt. She was a custom tailor who inspired him and taught him tailoring. Not until later he designed “luxury for the masses“.
His collections fascinate with a perfect and cleverly designed style and a kind of opulence only known from the French Haute Couture.

This fascination and the gift to see everything more beautiful and bigger than it is, seems to be my greatest gift in life.

I wanted to become a radiantly glamorous, pompous fashion prince who would enchant the world with his magic. That was my goal. I decided to live my fairy tale or, should we say, make my life a fairy tale – make my vision come true.

I had my dreams, my fantasies, my visions, and I put them into practice. I had a strict military upbringing.

Fashion

It was important not just to copy the historical styles, but rather to make them perfect, to “complete“ them, so to speak, using all the modern possibilities of handicraft and technology.
My entire fashion line was built on this practice. I used original cuttings from the Renaissance, Rococo and Baroque and altered them to fit into our time.
I have created a new fashion by making the rococo style wearable for today’s time. Today, we have fabrics and options, which had not been available in those days.
If you look at my collections, you will see that in the beginning, in the early 90s, my designs were still very much based on the baroque original and quite static, but then they became lighter and more free in their expression.
