Dorothee Schumacher: From Dusseldorf to World Domination
Born in Dusseldorf in 1966, Dorothee Schumacher is a German fashion designer. She began her career in fashion with a job in Dusseldorf store Peek & Cloppenburg, before undertaking an internship in a knitwear factory in Italy. After training in Italy, Schumacher moved to France, where she was ready to launch her career in design. She designed and launched her first collection in the 80s, and in 1989 she founded Schumacher clothes with her now ex-husband Jorg Singhoff. By 1994, her label had expanded to Italy. The company went from strength to strength in the next two decades. Dorothee is a mother to four children, and this has created a sensibility in her designs. She believes in fashion that is opulent yet accessible, and is designed to keep up with the modern woman.
The Rise of Schumacher
Schumacher was launched in 1989 by Dorothee Schumacher. Schumacher’s first line of clothing, also launched in 1989, was a commercial success. The company blossomed, and by the mid-90s had expanded to Italy. In 2000, Dorothee employed famous architect Yves Bayard to construct her new headquarters in Mannheim, solidifying her rise to the top of the German fashion chain. Schumacher is a leader in diversity, and has 140 employees across 16 countries, as well as 10 stores and 19 shop-in-shops. They have showrooms in multiple major cities including Hong Kong, Barcelona and Copenhagen, and are stocked globally by over 600 retailers.
Style With Substance
Schumacher’s style is the embodiment of class and femininity. Her clean, crisp designs incorporate the basis of feminine clothing along with a mix of the “modern woman” style to create practical designs that exude grace. Schumacher’s experience as a mother to four children is part of the driving force to create clothes that keep up with women. The brand also recognizes that femininity does not always equal girly - Dorothee designs with a mainly neutral palette and sticks to clean, tailored designs. Celebrity fans include Chrissy Teigen and Jessica Alba, who has been spotted out and about in Schumacher shoes.
Today, Schumacher is still thriving, with A/W16 and Resort 2017 lines released this year. Dorothee’s dedication to delivering style with substance has ensured that Schumacher isn’t going anywhere soon.
