These residents of Zurich are fashionable
They wear long hair, old hats or fancy dresses: We met five people who wear exceptional clothes - and talked with them about fashion, reactions and Zurich.
‘When I dress like other people, I feel like I’m in fancy dress’
As a journalist, Julia Marx (45) writes about the latest films. But when it comes to fashion, this native of Munich is inspired by the divas of the past. She dresses from head to toe in the styles of the ‘30s and ‘40s.
‘I do my own thing’
Piet Alder is a full-time airline pilot. But as a sideline he founded a record label in 2018 – Taxi Gauche Records. We talk to Piet about his unusual fashion style, his difficult childhood in Appenzell and why, for him, fashion has always been a way of rebelling against conservative attitudes.
‘I’ll always be an outsider’
Gerold Brenner likes to wear skirts. The fashion designer causes a bit of a stir – and not only in Zurich. German-born Gerold talks to us about freedom, courage and sustainability.
‘I’m breaking taboos’
Her official name is Maryli Maura Herz-Marconi, but most Zurich locals know the singer and actor by her stage name, La Lupa. Ticino-born La Lupa also dresses extravagantly off the stage.
‘I quickly end up looking over the top’
Minouche von Marabou has been a burlesque dancer for almost ten years. The 30-year-old Zurich native also attracts attention off stage with her eye-catching retro outfits.
