Bavarian fashion will be all the rage if Chicago's Erika Neumayer has her way. She is the proprietor of Rare Dirndl
and is selling handmade nouveau Bavarian clothing. But these aren't your Großmutter's dirndls.
Her dirndls have names like "Acid Rain" and "Wicked Garden" along with ones featuring Nirvana and Soundgarden song titles. Neumayer also makes trachtenhemden, those plaid shirts men wear with lederhosen.
It all looks very nice but, unfortunately, my budget dictates haberdashery more like this
