Born in Munich, Germany, Moshammer had an education in retail industry trading. He began to design fashion in the 1960s.

His base of existence was his boutique "Carnaval de Venise" in Munich's high society street, Maximilianstraße. There he created fashion for wealthy men from furs, cashmere, and silk. With this strategy he attracted the high society of Munich and Germany. His international clients included:

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis

actor Richard Chamberlain

King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden

star tenor José Carreras

magicians Siegfried and Roy

German media personality Thomas Gottschalk.

He had inherited the boutique from his mother, Else Moshammer. He had a strong relationship with her and frequently appeared in public with her. She died in 1993.

Moshammer was an eccentric and iridescent personality. He was well-known for carrying his Yorkshire Terrier dog Daisy in public wherever he went, and even wrote a book about her. She has her own website on the Internet. Daisy was Moshammer's darling, his trademark and his constant companion.

Moshammer had a strong commitment for homeless people. For this he was awarded the "Martin's Coat 2000" of the radio station, "Sankt Michaelsbund".

Moshammer played in some made-for-TV movies like in the German crime series Tatort. He had a musical band, "M
nchner Zwietracht" ("Munich Dissension"), with whom he was a contestant in the German Eurovision Song Contest preliminary round show in 2001. The song was entitled "Share Fun and Joy".

His death

On the morning of January 14, 2005, at 9 AM, his personal driver found him dead in his mansion in Gr
nwald, a suburb south of Munich. According to first reports of the public prosecutors, Moshammer had been strangled with a black telephone cable. The cable was found near the dead body. Daisy was found unharmed in the living room of his mansion.

The Munich police gave a press conference at noon on Sunday, January 16, reporting that a 25 year-old Iraqi asylum seeker, who had been tracked down through a DNA database, had admitted murdering Moshammer. It has been alleged that Moshammer had refused to pay 2000 Euro to the man, who was in financial difficulties, in return for homosexual favors.

His legacy

Moshammer was one of Germany's most successful fashion designers after Karl Lagerfeld and Wolfgang Joop. Furthermore, he committed his wealth to helping homeless people. He had recently begun to build a house for the homeless in Munich.
