Traditional Costumes

Schaumburger traditional costumes came out of fashion in the early 20th century. They disappeared as everyday clothes but still survived in traditional costume and dance clubs.
How could a modern version of the traditional Schaumburg costume look like? Fashion students at the University of Hanover have found answers. The illustrated book „Nach Neuem Trachten“(Traditional costumes newly construed – Schaumburg fashion photography – ISBN 978-3866744035) contains elaborately staged fashion photographs of noble, modern, young and funky versions of the Schaumburger traditional costumes, which were designed by the young fashion designers.
As the only resident of Schaumburg among the photographers I contributed the landscape photographs next to fashion photos.
