Rare Dirndl Stories & Customer Spotlights
"Ohh, where to start... I love my Rare Dirndls. I own a few of them from Rare. My custom, leopard print Rare Dirndl fits my feisty personality perfectly. When wearing it I feel amazing. When I wear my Rare Dirndl I notice that people look and notice me, and I shamelessly love that! I love wearing it and having multiple people come up to me and ask me questions about it and where I got it! I LOVE being able to tell them that I got it custom made for me from Rare Dirndl and that it is tailored to fit me and my personality in every way.
Nicolene looks fantastic in her Rare Dirndl Logo Scarf that she wore to the Baltimore Christmas Village to do some holiday shopping. She wore this super soft ivory and black edelweiss scarf with her brown and plaid winter coat, her adorable glasses, leather gloves, her messenger bag and tasty cup of Glühwein.
Emily from the Chardon Polka Band contacted me looking for something casual, modern and comfortable for her to wear while she performs with the band. We came up with a custom black and red design that is a dropped waist, knit sides for comfort and chain & edelweiss lace up front for some pizazz! After it arrived she said, "The vest fits AMAZINGLY!!!!!! I have been wearing it to all our German shows lately! Everyone loves it and gives me compliments all the time!!!!!!!!"

"I was not born into a German Club but I got there as fast as I could. German dance was something I wanted to do and sought out at the age of 9. I began at Vereinigung Erzgebirge where I danced for three years before it disbanded and I moved on to the United German Hungarians, whom I have been with for ten years.
