What is a Dirndl?
Picture yourself in a flowery meadow, its springtime with green grass and a sky bluer than the Nile; and there comes the bride… (uh oh, strike that) there is you, clad in a traditional Dirndl, a dreamy Dirndl complete with a gleaming silk apron… we got you, yes? Ok 😉
The Oktoberfest history and the Dirndl go back centuries, and the Dirndl has traveled through time and converted into a fashion icon of the 21st century.

Dirndl – Things were not always as glorious for Dirndls. Back in the day, a Dirndl dress served a more practical purpose. The Bavarian maids and farm workers started wearing Dirndls as they afforded comfort in their hardy lives in the hilly Alpine region. Dirndl became an unofficial royal-maid uniform and stayed in service for a century – before being discovered by the higher-class Bavarians.
The Dirndl renaissance came at the Bavarian royal wedding – of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese. The royal nuptials were followed by a week-long party – that became low-key, the first Oktoberfest ever.
The royal couple invited the locals of Munich to celebrate the union, where the beer flowed, and the kitchens ran around the clock. The Bavarian women turned up to the wedding in their work clothes, the Dirndl. That was all Dirndl needed to become a highly coveted fashion choice of the royal family. And the rest is, as they say, is history 😉
