In 1966 the designer Dorothee Schumacher saw the light of day in Düsseldorf. After an apprenticeship in the fashion house Peek & Cloppenburg, Schumacher moved to Italy, where she wanted to learn all the basics for the production of high-quality fashion in a knitting factory. She used the knowledge Schumacher gained during this time and founded the label Dorothee Schumacher together with her then husband Jörg Singhoff. Since that time, the brand has been based in Mannheim.
After founding her brand, Dorothee Schumacher began to develop her first own fashion. Her first collection included only three T-shirts. Schumacher designed them as a kind of rebellion against the established and often considered boring and monotonous business look. The designer used eye-catching serrated edges or satin ribbons in different colours for her shirts, for example, and thus laid the foundation for the style for which she is still so well known and appreciated today: the combination of elegant fashion with very unusual and playful elements.
Dorothee Schumacher's new designs quickly found great approval in the fashion world. The label received more and more orders, so that it was able to expand its business in the mid-1990s, first to Italy and a little later to the whole world.
Today, the Dorothee Schumacher label has 140 employees in 16 different countries around the world. Since the foundation of her brand, the label has scored points for its attention to detail. Schumacher is convinced that the strength of every woman is her femininity and therefore she tries to emphasize this femininity with every fashion piece and to highlight it. According to her own statement, she addresses the woman who is "smart and attractive at the same time".
It is precisely this concept that brought Dorothee Schumacher to the very top of the fashion world. Various stars such as Elle Macpherson, Jessica Alba, Anna Maria Mühle or Joy Denalane are among the brand's fans. Dorothee Schumacher is also one of the labels that helped to set the famous Hollywood film "The Devil Wears Prada".
