Anke Schlöder embarked on her career in fashion in 1995, when she opened her first shop in Madrid with her own collection. Since then, the German-born designer resident in Spain has shot to fame and her collections are sold on a number of foreign markets. In Europe – and in Spain, France, Germany and Britain in particular – her unique style has struck a special chord. She is also very successful in other markets like Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
In the past few years, she has received a number of awards from Spanish and international organisations. In 2000, she was awarded the Design Prize at Düsseldorf’s Premiere Collection in Germany and in 2001, a special prize at the Hong Kong Catwalk. She was also a finalist at the Human Cup Design Competition in Shanghai and fourth at Designer Days. The long list of accolades also includes becoming Lancôme’s Best Young Designer in 2004.
She has regularly presented collections at top catwalks in recent years, including Gaudí, where she took part in 2003 and 2004, and Cibeles, where her Spring-Summer 2006 collection was recently received with enthusiasm.
