Dirndl jewellery in New York and Munich
Brigitte Adolph

The Dirndl jewellery photos by Dirk Schiff are not only great in their field of tension between tradition and modernity, they also serve a good purpose. Every year the photographer shows his work in a Red Carpet exhibition and donates the proceeds from the sale of the photos.

This year he has won Dr. Christine Theiss as charity partner, who can also be seen on some photos. Many might know her as moderator of the german TV show “The biggest loser” or from her roles in films. She looks so tender in dirndl – it’s hard to believe that she was professional world champion in kickboxing for several years in a row!


With her association, Dr. Theiss is committed to the strong self-confidence of children and young people as protection against attacks and sexual violence. The proceeds of the photos go to her association Powerchild.

Also the other models on Dirks photos are not models in the conventional sense. So much for you the expressive actress Sarah Thonig, known from the series Rosenheimcops, and with voice trainer and singer Ariane Roth poses a real soul queen in front of the Munich sights. Dirk found it appealing to build a visual bridge between the American metropolis and his adopted city of Munich. Traditional costumes never seemed so cool!

I am grateful that I was able to contribute the “Trachtenschmuck” to this project. Those who follow this blog know that I have a great sympathy for Sarah Tack from Dirndl-Liebe in Munich. She creates unique pieces from the highest quality fabrics, with many details and an absolute sense of trend – she concentrates on Dirndl as THE female costume of our homeland Germany.

On the photos you can see the patterns Miss Loreley, Jettchen, Lulu and Lady Hamilton. I think that flowery motifs are especially suitable as Dirndl jewellery, even though my lace jewellery fits well with traditional dresses. Below I show you photos from a Dirndl shooting of Carmen Lindemann, here the Ariadne necklace makes itself quite magical in the décolleté.
All pieces will be delivered until the Wiesn – for your big appearance in a traditional modern look!
