“HEAD, HEART AND DRESS. WHEN THEY WORK TOGETHER, A WOMAN SHINES FROM
WITHIN.”

Dorothee Schumacher


HEART OF THE COMPANY  

Dorothee Schumacher is firmly convinced that the true strength of women lies within their femininity. This has been the message from her very first collection which was presented in 1989. Her exclusive, feminine tops had little to do with the power-dressing back then, emulating the men’s dress code. The charming rule-breaker's designs now represent everything that defines the designer: bows and cool-cut clothing blend together just as well as starting a business and a family at the same time. As a mother of four, entrepreneur and globetrotter, Dorothee Schumacher and her team are working towards just one goal: to make women stronger and help them feel more attractive. Her ability to sense the demands of women is her recipe for success.

Dorothee Schumacher and her team design collections which anticipate the spirit of the time, and intuitively apprehend the needs of every woman. Artwork, embroidery and signature prints are developed exclusively and internally – visionary tailoring until perfection is achieved. Every favourite piece is created in the atelier – it is sketched and draped until the SCHUMACHER heartbeat is palpable.


I CELEBRATE FEMININITY IN ITS INDIVIDUALITY. MY FASHION IS A MODERN COMPLIMENT TO THE CONFIDENT UNCONVENTIONAL WOMAN: PLAYFULLY ELEGANT, STRONG AND UNCOMPROMISINGLY FEMININE – AN ELECTRIC SELF-AWARENESS.

ABOUT THE COLLECTION

Dorothee Schumacher’s collection is uncompromisingly feminine and very modern at the same time. A feminine silhouette is always given an injection of modern sportiness, or vice versa. Luxurious materials are a great passion and she pays meticulous attention to the smallest details. Each season Dorothee Schumacher presents a pre and main collection which build on one another. Together with her design team, she develops illustrations, embroideries and signature prints and cuts. From a first drawing up until the draping on a mannequin – nothing leaves the atelier before it has this very special spirit, that is iconic for DOROTHEE SCHUMACHER. A journey of fashion…
