LAWBF X ESTHER PERBANDT / A LIVE CONCERT BY INTERDISCIPLINARY ARTIST & DESIGNER ESTHER PERBANDT
In November 2018 the interdisciplinary artist and designer Esther Perbandt was invited by the artist collective Like A Wild Beast's Fur (LAWBF). Her mission: To create an evening in the world renowned restaurant „Borchardt“ in Berlin as part of the collective’s showcase series.
Esther Perbandt turned the entire room into her universe. Not only the decorations and flowers were all black and white. Together with the Chef de Cuisine she came up with an extraordinary menu for a seated dinner that hosted 60 special guests from Berlin's art, music and fashion scene. All three courses were completely black, as were the drinks.
Animated collages were created by a video artist and transformed the location into a planet of two colors.
After a beautiful introduction into the personality and oeuvre of the designer, held by Nicholas Mockridge (founder of LAWBF and friend to Esther), the multi-talented designer performed live. Accompanied by musician Friederike Bernhardt, she sang four renditions of pop and avant-garde songs.
The evening was topped off with four models, wearing the designer's current collection. Subtle and slow movements - in the style of the classicist tableau vivant - brought alive renaissance paintings and Vogue Covers of the 1950’s.
ESTHER PERBANDT @ MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK BERLIN / E-WERK
We are happy about a successful presentation of the new A/W 19/20 collection „To The Moon“ during Berlin Fashion Week. Beautiful installation, a wonderful cooperation with the first political perfume „Feminista“, great interviews and a wonderful talk with the rebel perfumer Geza Schoen. And of course amazing guests. Thank you everybody.
"Not only was Esther Perbandt Germany’s first fashion designer that celebrated equal marriage rights with her “Say Yes!” collection, her work has long been known for an androgynous style that transmits her renowned sex appeal regardless of gender. In this year’s anniversary collection, however, she takes her relentless approach to perfection and empowerment a step even further. Introducing “To The Moon”, a tale as old as time re-imagined anew, she complements the almost stern and deconstructed collection with beautiful organic, harmonious shapes, made from manipulated and molded leather. Future-facing technology, such as 3D printing and CNC milling, meets traditional leather craft processes, resulting in shapes that are inspired by the feeling that one could indeed fly to

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 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!!!
7,5 million people in Germany are analphabets!
"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"
