Nora and Benedikta are back from Germany and have finally recovered from jet lag. While in Germany they had the opportunity to hold a press lunch attended by a number of publications. Even more important, it was attended by our recent Featured Member: Fashion1. She had a chance to meet with Nora and Benedikta and to talk with the German press about how much she loves BurdaStyle and what a great community we have here.

She also told them that, although the language barrier sometimes makes it hard for her, she loves the experience of having people all around the world connecting through their creations. In fact, she even said that BurdaStyle helped her make the decision to switch careers from physical therapist to pattern maker. How great is that! She brought in some of her creations and we were absolutely blown away by the quality of her work. It made us realize how rare it is that we get to connect with our members in such a personal way. In fact, meeting with her made such an impression on us that we’ve decided to have a meet up for our members here in New York! This is for all of you in the area who would like to see where the magic happens. You can check out our offices, meet the team and catch up with other members; all while eating some delicious snacks (cookies and fun gum will be some of the food provided). We don’t have a date yet, but keep your eyes peeled for the details. Keep up the great work and we’ll see at least some of you soon.

The BurdaStyle Team
