Sample - (Music in the show:
short samples by various artists)


After some easily improvised fashion shows
in places near fabrikneu like

MODE IM TIERGARTEN
MODE IM HOF and
KREUZBERG-MODE
(all 1973 - 1974)

Claudia tried other locations too
to present her fashion in a more
narrative or location inspired way
as she organized a billiard room to show
MODE IM ATRIUM, also in 1973.

In 1975 started to set up bigger fashion events in fabrikneu

For her second show of this kind
SHAKE YOUR HIPS
Claudia's husband - the sculptor
JÜRGEN SKODA
built a polyester tropical island
in the large media room in the fabrikneu attic
where the models showed
Claudia's 1976 collection
in front of an excited audience
to a wild mixture of 50s and 60s music.
The concept of combining fashion, art and music
was now Claudia's favorite concept - until today.

This film is part of the multimedia show

"DRESSED TO THRILL"

to honour Claudia's live achievment
as a fashion designer at
Kunstbibliothek of Kunstforum Berlin
(from 2021/04 to 2021/07)
