Lodenjacke Cameo on Project Runway

25 August 2014. Prost! A Lodenjacke (hunters jacket) recently made a cameo on Project Runway Season 13, Episode 5 "The Klum of Doom". Host Heidi Klum compared the color of one of the designers dresses to that of a Lodenjacke...which wasn't a good thing. But hey, a little Bavarian culture made it on to prime time reality TV. Wunderbar!!!

More Information on Exhibit & Venue

Formed in 1942 by University of Munich students, The White Rose was a small, non-violent Nazi resistance group in Germany that spearheaded a nine-month anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign calling for active opposition to Adolf Hitler’s regime. Seven members of the group were executed in 1943 and many others were imprisoned. The groups 6th leaflet, known as the “Manifesto of the Students of Munich,” was later airdropped over Germany in June 1943 by Allied planes.
