House of Diehl is the New York-based fashion
Mary Jo Diehl and
Roman Milišić. House of Diehl are one of those
avant garde fashion labels whose clothes are more
likely to be seen in an
I-D editorial than a department store, but their
clothes crop up occasionally on the red carpet and
in music videos, on the likes of
Naomi Watts and
Eve (rapper). Their work has also been exhibited
in art environments, including the Massachusetts
Museum of Contemporary Art,
Deitch Projects gallery, the Priska C. Juschka
gallery, and GAle GAtes et al.
They are best known for their rock'n'roll-style
live fashion performance, called Instant Couture,
with which they've supported Sonic Youth, and staged
events at New York
Fashion Week; at
Life Ball in Vienna, Austria. Competitive Instant
Couture is called
Style battling, a growing art form, which has
given rise to the "Style Wars" Style Battle
Championship Tour, which occurred Fall 2007.
House of Diehl were the recipients of the Triumph
International Fashion Award 2004/5.
