Oh the Stories Klaus Stockhausen Could Tell
Klaus Stockhausen is the contributing fashion director at Zeit Magazine and is a fixture of the fashion scene. This is a man who has really lived life to the fullest, and has done it with lots and lots of laughter. In fact, I don’t think I have ever laughed as much in an interview as I did with Klaus. He is honest and playful. Self-deprecating and just the right amount of catty so you know it’s all in good fun.
Just to give you an idea about who Klaus is. He started his career as a DJ in Germany. Something he did for 15 years and he is created for introducing house music to the country. He was also in a boys band called Boytronic that had a top 10 hit song called “You”. He was doing street style long before that phrase even existed in the fashion lexicon. And not only was he the personal stylist for Naomi Campbell he was also the mastermind behind all of John Galliano’s extraordinary outfits that he wore to take his epic bows at the end of each of his Christian Dior and Galliano shows.
Sufficed to say Klaus has got a lot of great stories to tell. As well strong opinions about the current crop of models, how to handle divas on a photo shoot and some key insights into how to be a successful stylist. We spoke together right after the month of fall/winter 2018 fashion shows had wrapped.
