They are the creators of must-have bags and conceptual , feminine avant-gardism. Berlin fashion label KAVIAR GAUCHE debuted in 2004 with a guerrilla fashion show in front of the Parisian store Colette. Since then they have become a true success on the international stage. The ensuing awards and nominations also drew a great deal of attention: in September 2006, they bagged the Visionary Award in London, and in the same year, they were nominated for the Swiss Texti le Award in Zurich. Winning the Karstadt New Generation Award at the Mercedes-Benz fashion week in 2007 in Berlin clinched the designer pair’s international breakthrough. Stern promptly voted KAVIAR GAUCHE one of the “10 most important German fashion designers”. After their spring/summer collection was presented with acclaim at London Fashion Week in 2009, KAVIAR GAUCHE has been showing its collections at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin since autumn/winter 09/10. KAVIAR GAUCHE also presented its autumn/winter collection 13/14 at Paris Fashion Week, and in summer 2013 they were represented once again in Berlin.
THE DESIGNER DUO
With degrees from the Esmod Berlin fashion school in their pockets, the designers Alexandra Fischer-Roehler and Johanna Kühl initially went their separate ways. Alexandra’s degree collection was awarded the Moët & Chandon Fashion Debut in 2003, and after gaining initial experience with Vivienne Westwood in London, Johanna went on to assist Martine Sitbon in Paris. The pair finally came together in November 2004 to found KAVIAR GAUCHE. www.kaviargauche.com
