Wolfgang Joop’s (b.1944) fashion career began as editor at German fashion magazine Neue Mode in 1970. He soon moved into free-lance writing and designing. The first line designed under his own name was a line of furs starting in 1978. In 1981-82 he started his famous Joop! ready-to-wear line, and three years later, added a men’s line. Joop sold the Joop! label in 2001. Today he designs a line established in 2004, Wunderkind.
