The golden era of German fashion is being recalled with a retrospective of designer Uli Richter in the city where he worked, Berlin.
Richter, who in his heyday sold to the likes of I. Magnin and Bergdorf Goodman, presented his collection to retailers and private clients 47 times, traveling through New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Washington, San Franciso and Houston. But perhaps the most memorable was a November 1965 show at The Plaza—when the lights suddenly went out. Richter simply sent the models out with candles. It turned out it was the famous New York blackout.
