US.20230525.003 · Person · 1885-1960

As an art student, Koehler (1885-1960) studied under Kolomon Moser at the School of Applied Arts in Vienna and later joined Moser's Wiener Werkstätte and the German and Austrian Werkbund. Koehler's work in fashion included not only illustrations for the Wiener Werkstätte and the fashion magazine Wiener Mode, but also textile design and at least one collaboration with Emilie Flöge's Schwestern Flöge fashion house. Koehler moved to Sweden in 1931 where she worked extensively as a costume designer and book illustrator. Her illustrations for children's books are of special note.
