The only German-speaker I could find is Simon Barth.

About Simon Barth

Simon Barth, who lives and works as a Designer in Vienna today, has been impressed by Haute Couture and gorgeous embroideries since his early childhood. But the big news is that I discovered Simon was born and raised in Munich!  He also lived in Berlin, but found it “too trashy”.  He is happy in Vienna.

His new collection “Dark Seduction 2016” is a elegant and mysterious trip on a sparkling garden full of obsession and fantasy.

According to his own website, though, it says: Simon Barth präsentiert heuer auf der Vancouver Fashion Week seine Kollektion „Glimmering Transparency“.

So, whether it is dark seduction or glimmering transparency, at least we know he speaks German.  LOL

His Vienna (Wien) website can be found here:
