Wolford are a truly well known, household name. It is known across the entire globe as the standard of excellent hosiery.
Wolford have, since the 50s, been the leading designer of essential leg wear items and
the world's most creative designer of fashion leg wear. Wolford was founded in 1949 by Walter
Palmers and Reinhold Wolf in Bregenz, Austria. Bregenz is a beautiful and inspirational mountain town on the border with Switzerland
and the perfect location to become inspired to create something beautiful. Wolford's objective
was to bring the Germanic spirit of quality and enduring, long lasting design to the world of apparel. From these two devoted and hard
working entrepreneurs' endeavours, we have some of the finest tights that have ever been made. Each decade that has passed since 1949,
the company has tried and tested new innovations, created incredibly luxurious special releases and debuted expansive fashion
collections each and every season.
As they became better known in their homeland of Austria, they began to expand into the wealthiest halls and homes of Vienna. Vienna has long been a
tourist hot spot and a place that has defined fashion and design. The city attracts so many internationally important people, that
once you are prominent there, you will be heard about all over the world soon enough. After opening stores in Vienna and the high
society choosing Wolford as their favourite brand, the reputation of this little rural company became known around the world. Soon,
incredibly talented designers like Karl Lagerfeld designed for Wolford and the Italian couture master, Valentino. This partnership
with the world's best has further brought the name of Wolford to ears around the planet and
in the 80s, to work alongside Wolford was the desired and coveted thing. Other designers like Zac Posen, Emilio Pucci, Missoni
and Philippe Starck, to name but a handful, all had some influence over a Wolford collection and helped bring their experience to
the table. This made Wolford even more suited to the haute couture market they are now famous for.
In 2014, they released Wolford Jewellery Tights, something that was only made on a tiny scale, in this case only
499 pairs. This is a tiny amount for a company that would normally only begin making a design in the tens of thousands. Items like
the Jewellery Tights were available just once and embedded with crystals to bring the maximum amount of luxury into their range as
possible. Wolford sold faster than any other limited release item merchants have ever sold
and they were praised universally for their quality. But the best part is that Wolford tights
aren't all embedded with crystals but they are all made with the finest materials that can be found, which means they are amazing to wear and last far longer that most other brand of tights.
Other innovations include their latest Wolford Pure 50 Tights, a seamless tights design that is different to anything
we've seen before. Seamless tights are often made of one tube of material for their durability, but these items
are cut and glued together with a special epoxy developed for this fabric. This makes them feel seamless as they
are so magnificently comfy and no seams are there to rub against your skin, and yet the durability remains.
Wolford's work has laid the groundwork for much of the industries best and most revolutionary products, such as their pioneering work in control and shapewear.
Without that foundation, you simply wouldn't be able to get some of the leg wear that you know and love today, from any designer. Click

In the 90s, a French magazine that had scored an exclusive interview with Emmanuelle Alt, of French Vogue. At the time, she was a columnist, but a talented one that was
becoming a rising star in fashion journalism. She became fashion director in 2000 and is now editor in chief, so even in the 90s,
her opinion was very influential. When asked about her ten favourite fashion innovations in recent time, she said her number two
choice was her Wolford stockings. This was the only mention of leg wear on her list,
otherwise dominated by couture gowns and coats. This mention signifies the magnificent and unrivalled quality of their work and how
they could impress the best of the world's fashion judges. Wolford Individual Stockings are still
offered today and are still as popular as ever.

most requested items amongst the clothing industry, whether it be for theatre, fashion shoots or the movie industry. It is always the
item of choice for business women in the world's greatest cities. And of course, it is the favourite of European, and indeed world
royalty.Wolford spend much of their time now on improving their already magnificent essential
ranges by using modern technology. Computer technology has allowed them to create items that fit perfectly by running the machines
that would have to have been operated manually otherwise. It is also a great opportunity to help with the design of items, creating a
more varied range of colour and tone rather that mixing the dye and testing physical samples.
Wolford's range has increased in the past decade because of this and they now offer more
colours than they could ever have done before. But with a colossal range of everyday items, they have also released a number of
limited and collector edition items too.
