Who is Gerry Weber?
Gerhard Weber was born in Halle in Westphalia, Germany, with its 20,000 inhabitants, half-timbered houses and cobblestones. From this beginning, he joined the ranks of high fashion, alongside Parisian and Milanese born designers. Weber was initially a textile salesman, who opened his first fashion shop in 1965. The clothes racks were housed at first in his parents’ garage.
Development of the Gerry Weber Brand
Initially, Weber carried on working as a clerk in a fashion company, alongside building his business. Later, he discovered expanded his own fashion shops, using his passion for design, fabrics, and colour. In 1973, alongside a childhood friend, he founded a company for the production of women’s trousers. This was the birth of the Gerry Weber brand. The company expanded their production bit by bit and today also manufactures a wide range of women’s blouses, dresses, jackets, coats and knitwear too.
The Philosophy – a Global Brand
Fashion by the Gerry Weber brand follows international trends. Cleverly designed individual pieces, such as colourful jackets and trousers by Gerry Weber, sport sophisticated detail, making them perfect for mix and matching.
Create an Original Look with Separates
Weber’s strong, single fashion pieces are carefully attuned to one another when designed, meaning that it is simple to put together an outfit that really works and is individual to you, and to build a wardrobe where clothes can work in different ways when put together. Weber design separates with outfits in mind, and the intelligent buyer who knows her own style can create further outfits, with a knowledge of what works for her own look and style. Yet these pieces are also designed to look superb in their own right, or paired with simple separates.
Investing in Weber Clothes

Trousers and Jeans
Jeans can be worn for both casual and more business-like occasions, due to Weber’s use of top quality materials and fine tailoring.
Gerry Weber trousers are perfect to don in the evening, whether an extravagant or simple look is required.

Narrow, dinner-suit trousers create a Big Night Out look, when teamed, perhaps, with a flowing, or asymmetrical top. Flared denims create a rock chick look and vibe, perfect to pair with a leather jacket and high heel shoes or boots.
Fitted and worn open or slightly open, Gerry Weber blazers flatter the figure and make for a chic look for the work place or smart event. How to wear your Gerry Weber blazer? Team it with sharply cut trousers, a swish blouse or a pencil skirt for an ultra feminine, sleek look.
