Meet Your Community Manager

Photo_9__medium

Hello my beautiful new friends!
I’m so excited to be writing this, my very first post for the BurdaStyle blog. I’ve just signed on as the Community Manager for the site, so I’ll be spending lots more time here getting to know the community that makes BurdaStyle so great. I’m so impressed with everyone’s style and passion, and I’m looking forward to being part of the community.

Farewell to Jamie and Jillian!

While the rest of the BurdaStyle editorial team was jamming out to Solange Knowles on Madison Avenue at the Coach store, I opted for a more low-key Fashion’s Night Out in Brooklyn with some fashionista friends. Check out some photo highlights from our evening out!

My First Sewing Class

3rd_ward_main-2_medium

I had just moved to NYC – friends were few and my new apartment didn’t lend well to my favorite hobby, oil painting. The need to take steps to fulfill my social and creative needs was evident. I began doing a little online research, attempting to find an affordable painting and/or sewing class in Brooklyn. This is when I stumbled upon 3rd Ward. Before I knew it I was touring the facility, seeing everything 3rd Ward had to offer, from woodworking to graphic design to fashion. Because I was looking for a painting class more advanced than the ones offered at 3rd Ward, it was clear I was meant to take their Sewing: Level I class instead.
