Fashion for a big city Vienna is an old lady who goes to bed early and sleeps late! A city like Vienna in a globalized environment is the background for the first thirty years of “clothing development assistance” by a Viennese fashion designer since 1990. Against a smooth, internationalized aesthetic, Susanne Bisovsky formulates profound, but also playful and ultimately self-determined approaches to clothing, fashion and clothing. The fashion designer takes us on a journey into the highs and lows of a textile reality that hardly knows the past and only knows moments of the present. In doing so, she penetrates the illusory world of hysterical overproduction for and with us and opens her real and imaginary treasure trove to the clothing of a city whose treasures only need to be uncovered. Undeterred by trends, she shows us an image of the “Beautiful Viennese” that seems to have fallen out of time. And between the lines of the volume, illustrated by well-known photographers, you finally find a city that is increasingly losing itself at the price of interchangeability. To prevent this from happening, the couturière gifts us with refreshing “Viennese chic”. Couture collections from traditional punk to Teatro alla Scala With text contributions from Helmut Lang, Suzy Menkes, Barbara Vinken, Angela Stief, Elisabeth Längle, Andrea Bonicelli, Hubert Achleitner and others Photographed by Wolfgang Zac, Atelier Olschinsky, Bernd Preiml, Wolfgang Pohn, Jenni Koller, Bianca Hochenauer and Günter Derleth.

Susanne Bisovsky studied fashion design with Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, who hired her to Paris in 1989, Vivienne Westwood, Marc Bohan and Helmut Lang (for whom she produced the “Dress of the Year 1995”). She received the first Fred Adlmüller scholarship for her diploma collection “Be tracht ung”. In addition to her own label, Susanne Bisovsky has designed for national and international fashion houses such as Kathleen Madden. In parallel to fashion design, she designs costumes for the Salzburg Festival and the Teatro alla Scala to the Vienna State Opera. Since 2020, she has been devoting more time to her own “Everlasting Collections” and the clothing image of an imagined city. Photo: © Udo Titz
