Since this year we have the marriage for everyone in Germany and Esther Perbandt is celebrating this important social step by announcing her first wedding collection. The „Say Yes“ collection breaks her former work in a surprising way: nothing is black, all is white. Her own very personal interpretation of romantic wedding outfits for men and women. „Because we are all beautiful brides“
Outfits can be made on demand in common clothes sizes or made to measure. See complete collection in the menu „say yes“. Please contact us for further information: firstname.lastname@example.org

Esther Perbandt for Walt Disney STAR WARS LEGION
I am happy to announce that I am invited to Los Angeles Fashion Week to have my own show. Sven Helbig, the composer I am closely working with since last season is joining me to rock the city. Thanks a lot to Goethe-Institut Los Angeles and LAFW.
Esther is teaming up with the german composer Sven Helbig to create the show music for the designer's appearance at the Mercedes Benz Berlin Fashion Week july 8th 2015 / 9:30 pm at Brandenburger Tor.
The piece is composed for Soprano (Nadja Michael), Countertenor (Felix Räuber), Esther Perbandt herself and Electronics and includes lyrics written by Sven.
Esther is more than proud to have the possibility of working with this incredibly creative team and such big names of the german music scene willing to rock Berlin with her.

Esther Perbandt did the complete costume design for the first video of the solo project of Rammstein singer Till Lindemann.
Esther is very grateful for this opportunity and the fact to have met some great creative free minds like Till Lindemann and the film maker Zoran Bihac...
LINDEMANN "PRAISE ABORT"
Together with the BMZ, the Bundesministerium für WIrtschaft und Entwicklung, Esther Perbandt spend 5 days in Bangladesh to film a documentary about the textile industry in this country. Esther met victims of the Rana Plaza accident april 2014, interviewed factory owners and workers, talked to the fascinating trade union woman Nazmer Akhter and visited a female factory worker at her tiny home. Especially the last visit (see 2nd video) was very emotional and a situation which Esther will never forget.
What Esther experienced and learned is that int the end it is not a solution not to buy from Bangladesh anymore, because it would just shift the problem to another country. But it is important how you buy it and that you know the production chain and can trust them
ESTHER PERBANDT FOR HERR VON EDEN
It is very rare that I wear clothes by other designers than myself. But for a special evening like new years eve I was wearing an incredibly well made sexy smoking by my friend and colleague Bent Angelo Jensen from Herr Von Eden.
Thanks for this beautiful friendship and this amazing smoking. Happy New Year!!!

"This fact is frightening for me and encouraged me to donate some of my own designs to help."
My longlasting business partner KÖNIGSDRUCK had the handsome idea to create an auction with high fashion pieces from ESTHER PERBANDT and SO POPULAR to generate money for supporting and finalising the app "IRMGARD" made by KOPF, HAND + FUSS gGmbH. With this innovative and modern way and as well in a discrete and anonymous manner illiterates can learn how to write and read.
Now I will count on you help:
Purchase one of my favorite pieces on http://www.koenigsdruck.de/showroom till the 31th of october and have the odd for extra gains.
Moreover I love to offer all participants a personal invitation for my fashion show in january 2015.
I am "HAPPY BY DESIGN"
During Berlin Fashion Week in july 2014 ESTHER PERBANDT had her debut as a singer
to present and underline her unisex collection -LIVE- for spring summer 2015
ESTHER PERBANDT came out with the idea for this season to be the singer and performer of her ideas and thoughts. With her self written lyrics, the arty live act and accompanying video animations made by the artists from "zeitguised" ESTHER PERBANDT transmitted the philosophy of her collection.
Esther Perbandt had her stage debut as a singer with her newly-founded all-star band to present her new spring summer 2015 collection "LIVE" at the Michalsky StyleNite during Berlin Fashion Week / 11th July 2014

Tickets include entrance for the after show party
In September 2013 the Esther Perbandt store was extended by the former atelier in the back. Since then the designer is presenting the premium men’s collection of the renowned German family business FALKE there.
Already one year ago Esther Perbandt discovered the FALKE collection as a product that complements her own style.
For many months she worked with the company’s sales manager on the realization of the FALKE partner store concept.
Customers are now classily led over to the Esther Perbandt styles through the classic orientation of the FALKE collection. At the same time the FALKE collection wins through the combination with the avant garde style of the Esther Perbandt brand and opens up to a more individual clientele. The designer shows how well both brands actually work out together with the two male and female mannequins, on which both brands are combined in a very natural way.
The partner store is conceptualized for one year for now. Beyond that, both companies are looking forward to new exciting joint projects.
