1.300 ladies from all over Germany are eager to oblige
Wiesn Alarm: When rental car entrepreneur Regine Sixt invites to her traditional ‘Ladies-Wiesn’ on the first Monday after the opening weekend of the Oktoberfest the German ladies are eager to oblige. Not a single woman who would want to miss this exclusive – and therefore highly desired- invitation. 1.300 ladies get ready and arrive dressed in the newest Dirndl creations at the Marstalltent at the Theresienwiese in Munich. The beer tent transforms to a runway and selfie setting. No admittance for men by the way. I was there and will introduce you to some of the ladies in their gorgeous dirndls. Who wore the most beautiful one?

The guest list reads like a who-is-who list: “Some of the most important women from the world of business, politics and society are represented here today”, welcomes Regine Sixt the attendants, among them mother-in-law of Swedish princess Madeleine – Eva O’Neill, Princess Elisabeth of Bavaria, the wife of the prime minister of Bavaria Karin Seehofer, Kimberly Marteau Emerson – wife of the American ambassador, actress Uschi Glas, DJane Giulia Siegel, WAG Cathy Hummels.

Regine Sixt promotes her charity ‘Tränchen Trocknen’ and asks to support the children’s aid foundation. I think it is remarkable how the active entrepreneur has been exceptionally committed for years now – and the success is impressive. When finally hit-singer Roberto Blanco hit the stage and belted out his hit “Ein bisschen Spaß muss sein”, none of the exuberantly ladies remained on their seats any longer. Dirndls were presented in all sorts and colors: from traditional to really imaginative. Sometimes it is astonishing to which lengths some women got to get attention- not always flattering. After three hours of swaying to the music, feasting and donating, it was time to say goodbye. ‘Servus’ and ‘Pfiat di’ – see you next year! BvH
Damenwiesn into the Marstall-tent: Cheers!

Gala editor-in-chief Anne Meyer-Minnemann wore a dirndl by Munich label OWLOON- who, like the name already suggests, have an owl as their logo. “This is my dirndl discovery of the year”, gushes the journalist, “jacket and dirndl are made from extraordinary fabrics and are coordinated beautifully. They are modern and don’t have anything in common with the so-called fantasy dirndls.”
