From Bavaria Lederhosen to Ludwig & Therese: A star was born!
What persuades a prospective student to found an online shop for Trachten fashion? We asked Daniel, founder and CEO of Bavaria Lederhosen and Ludwig & Therese.
„I promise, that's a exciting story! During my year abroad in the US, I really was missing my home and everything, that belongs to the Bavarian culture. In these times I learned to appreciate the unique feeling of the Bavarian way of life, which instantly made me to invite my American friends to the Munich Oktoberfest. My enthusiasm of Bavaria, German fairs and especially of traditional Trachten fashion made it as a matter of course for the American boys to wear Trachten at their first Oktoberfest visit. And here was the problem: finding proper Trachten fashion in the US turned out to be extremly difficult. About this fact I told my fellow in Germany and of course we wanted to change this situation as soon as possible. So a young engineer and an information scientist made it happen: Bavaria Lederhosen, a German online shop, that ships Lederhosen as well as Trachten Dirndl overseas. From now on my american friends were well-dressed at Oktoberfest! But not only overseas but also in Germany our offer was encountering high interest, which made our range of fashion grow constantly. To satisfy our ambitious German customers with a maximum of variety, something new was born: Ludwig & Therese, an online shop with the aim of exclusivity and high quality Trachten fashion. By now, Ludwig & Therese is on of the biggest and most well-known Trachten shops, that deliver Trachten fashion directly to the front door – an enrichment to the world of Bavarian Trachten, that doesn't want to be missed!“
Ludwig & Therese – A name to celebrate Trachten!
Who is Ludwig and what's going on with Therese? We solve the mystery, which surrounds our name!
„Ludwig & Therese“ should remember a party, that couldn't be forgotten: the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria. It's the 12th of october 1810 when Prince Ludwig and gorgeous Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen tie the knot of marriage. The aristocratic couple was celebrated by a royal wedding reception, that ended with a flowering party of incredible five days. Part of it was a pompous horse-race on a Munich meadow, that invited to watch, cheer and celebrate. To the delight of Munich's population the royal court decided to rerun the race in the following year. To honor the bride the area around the meadow was named „Theresens-Wiese“, which is today the famous location of the Oktoberfest. The annual horse-race established to a top event in Munich, that counted more attendants every year. Not the race was the main focus any more: showmen, amusement booths and carousels filled up the area and made this event to a traditional fair, which has been known over the borders of Bavaria.
Their silver wedding Ludwig and Therese celebrated at the same place where they married 25 years before with a grand Trachten parade, which is even today the kick-off of the Oktoberfest – the biggest fair of the world. The first beer was served in 1880, that was followed by the well-known beer tents with Bavarian music and traditional food – the foundation of the Oktoberfest was set.
