    Hi,

    In an article about Kate moss showing her bony knees in a dress of a famous designer I read: Für so ein Stoff gewordenes Träumchen von Louis Vuitton würde wohl jede Frau ihre ganz persönliche Problemzone ausnahmsweise zeigen…

    Could it be: For such a piece of fashion heaven...? In the German is it suggestive of dream made real..?

    Danke sehr.

    It's a play of words:

    ein wahrgewordener Traum = a dream came true
    ein Stoff gewordener Traum = a dream came fabric/cloth/dress
    = a dream turned into...

    It means "For this piece of fashion every girls dreams of...". Yes, it is about a dream becoming real.

    Yes, I believe your idea of "fashion heaven" fits quite well.
