Raphaela Dürr is a costume designer based in Germany. Her early interest in fashion, costume and craftsmanship led her to René Lezard Mode GmbH after graduating from high school in 2013. There she successfully completed her vocational training as a fashion seamstress at the end of 2015 with the Chamber of Industry and Commerce honoring her as the best in Germany.
After that she studied Fashion Design (B.A.) at the “Akademie Mode & Design” in Munich from September 2016, graduating in February 2020 with 1.1 as a final grade. During her studies, she already realized numerous projects with clients from various industries, including the Walt Disney Company. In addition, she completed various internships such as in the Vienna studio of Lena Hoschek.
In addition, there are further costume projects outside of her studies at the Festspielhaus Neuschwanstein, with which she still has a close collaboration today. Here, in 2018, she first oversaw the partial redesign of the costumes for the Ludwig² musical, while just one year later she was responsible for the complete costume design for the Füssen production of Die Päpstin. During this time it did not take long until she discovered her passion for costume work and decided to dedicate her further career to costume design.
“Clothes from decades past inspire, but it’s the symbiosis with timeless modern approaches that provides the space to create iconic characters with recognition value. This is how costumes tell stories, and with them the people behind them.”
