ca. 200 pages
The juror of the heart from Germany’s Next Top Model
“Thomas Rath is a fashion professional.” Gala
Fashion Rath is the contemporary handbook for self-assured styles;
He made a film ball dress for Sarah Jessica Parker from Sex and the City, advised Claudia Schiffer and Linda Evangelista while chief designer for Kathleen Madden. And together with Heidi Klum, he will be in the jury of Germany’s Next Top Model for the third time in early 2013. Thomas Rath has for years been a much sought-after man in the international fashion business, travelling constantly between Düsseldorf, Berlin, Rome, Paris, Los Angeles and New York and is known as someone with firm opinions on all simple and complex style questions.
Thomas Rath’s engaging charm and extravagant dressing style has become his unmistakable trademark. He calls it classic with a twist, and the creations he designs for his own label are equally idiosyncratic. He stands for an expert combination of timeless elegance and nostalgic extravagance with a touch of nonchalance.
In his book Der Fashion Rath he ponders about what fashion can be today and what it means for a woman to find her own style. He clears out their closets and replaces the old rags with a few vintage items, he makes one look appreciate colours and bold combinations and forbids opaque black stockings. He reveals what patterns enable a woman to become an icon and what is really important if you want to make a bella figura – depending on the occasion, condition and mood. His message: Be self-confident and courageous!
Thomas Rath has been a part of the fashion industry for 25 years. He worked as chief designer for such large international labels as Jil Sander, Windsor and Mulberry before going to Zucchero in Milan in 2009 and launching his own label in 2010.
His creations are inspired by the glamorous days of old Hollywood, by the Italian zest for life and British nonchalance. Thomas Rath lives in Düsseldorf with his husband Sandro.
