Dora Herbst: The Fashion Icon of Ibiza

Fashion made by Dora Herbst has a long tradition of innovation and high quality. The German designer first landed on the island in 1968 as a surrealist painter.

In this magical time of true Flower Power, she was one of the pioneers of the authentic bohemian genre. With Ibiza as her muse, she began designing clothing for herself, inspired by the colours and atmosphere of the island. Her creations, made with a unique mix of materials and hand dyed cloth, were so fun and original that women started requesting her garments. By 1970 she had already become known as the first and most important international ambassador of the Ibiza Look, even being awarded a trophy for Leader of Exportation by the Madrid government.

Dora Herbst's distinctive designs were acclaimed throughout the world and notably worn by Brigitte Bardot, Romy Schneider and Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis, amongst many others over the years, such as Naomi Campbell and Sandra, more recently.

More than five decades later, Dora Herbst's shop in Marina Botafoch is a must visit destination for all fashion lovers who seek high quality, original Ibizan creations and unique handmade pieces.

For the first time selected masterpieces are available online for people outside the lifestyle hotspot Ibiza.
