Fashion's Night Out 2012: Brooklyn Edition


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


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.

Masters of Embroidery: Maison Lesage


François Lesage, the man behind the most famous embroidery house in the world, passed away yesterday. It’s hard to image couture fashion without Maison Lesage, the house that his father founded in the early 20th century. The elder Lesage worked with famed French designers like Madeleine Vionnet and Elsa Schiaparelli and when François took the reigns from his father at the age of 20 he helped modern couture designers like John Galliano for Christian Dior, Givenchy and Christian Lacroix make their wildest embroidery dreams come true.
