High Fashion – Really High

Kitzbühel, Austria – This afternoon I heard more Russian spoken than German but it’s still an Alpine paradise.  Not far away, in Munich, Oktoberfest is underway, here in the Alps, every village has its ‘Almabtrieb’ festivities, a sure sign of summer giving way to fall.  Strange that the traditional Trachtmode has become high fashion once again…the Munich elite paying thousands of Euros for Dirndls that are worn once a year. My favorite store here in Kitz is Gössl…
