Fashion Christmas cards by Mela Koehler

Christmas card by Mela Koehler

Mela Koehler (1885-1960) was a conspicuous member of the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshop), an artistic collaboration for artists, artisans, designers, and architects.

Mela Koehler created about 150 postcards for the Wiener Werkstätte: typically fantasy fashion images, which served not as advertisements for actual clothes but as inspiration for women to experiment with their own attire. The cards celebrated popular fashion, and many were designed to celebrate holidays. Mela Koehler created for the Wiener Werkstätte some cards, celebrating Christmas and the winter season.
