Darja Richter / Versailles New Lace

Darja Richter's boutique-workshop called “Les Nouvelles Dentelles de Versailles“ or “Versailles New Lace” and the designer exclusively works with French lace from Nord-Pas-de-Calais.

Last century Darja Richter was a fashion designer traveling between Berlin and Paris. A mainstay in the tight-nit circle of talented underground designers, she won the top prize at France’s National Association for Development in Fashion Art in 1997. And then she disappeared...But Darja Richter has re-emerged, not in Milan, London, New York or Paris, but in Versailles...just a stones throw away from the famous Chateau, with a new project focusing on promoting the french craft industry.
Darja’s boutique-workshop called “Les Nouvelles Dentelles de Versailles“ or “Versailles New Lace” is located in the old neighborhood of Saint Louis. There the designer exclusively works with French lace from Nord-Pas-de-Calais.
But why Versailles? To find out her source of inspiration we went with Darja to the Librairie des Princes, a bookstore on the grounds of the famous Chateau. There the designer is surrounded by items dealing in the splendors of the French royal court, among them accessories from “Versailles New Lace.”
Marie-Antoinette is a star and the style linked to this French fashion icon continues to grow in popularity. Whether they come from luxury fashion houses or flea markets, these regal accessories embellish women’s wardrobes.
Fashion’s wild child from the 1990’s has settled own, but she hasn’t lost any of her edge when it comes to “baroque n’roll“.
