Wiederhoeft Makes Demi-Couture for the Iconoclastic Princess

Jackson Wiederhoeft’s designs are not for the faint of heart. They’re not entirely comfortable, not easily digestible. What they are, though, is exciting.

Since Wiederhoeft, the person, debuted Wiederhoeft, the demi-couture line, in New York City three years ago, he’s grown a circle of admirers charmed by this exuberant celebration of craft. His 16-look Resort 2023 collection, for instance, opens with a candy-pink column dress, embellished with sequins and a feather-embroidered poodle. Later, a sleeveless gimp suit — dotted with crystals, of course — sits beneath a white satin suit.
