    Amazing! I love Betty Hutton. I’ve also always loved the “prom dress montage” from Pretty in Pink. Classic!

    I’ve been a member or visitor since the start and it never occurred to me this was located in New York. I assumed, like Burda magazine, it was coming from Germany. I know the online community is global, which appeals to me.

    I have been in love with Burda since I was a child when I was cutting my mother dresses. I work in a multinational company too and seeing this interview made realize how a small idea can turn into a something big. Great job Nora! I wish that all people could believe in their dreams and make them come true.

    I always love these glimpses into the creative process of one of my favorite heroines. We all take BurdaStyle for granted, as part of the Web 2.0 we live with today, but it took vision to step out and start this. Today it seems obvious, but it wasn’t, was it? It was a step into the unknown at the time. It took guts and brains to develop the idea. Kudos to Nora (and Benedikta, too)!
