I’m in the German edition of Burda Style magazine this month! I’m so excited!!
Someone at Burda HQ dropped me an email months ago asking if they could have some hi-res versions of my pale pink twist dress photos to use in the magazine, but it was so long ago that I’d assumed they dropped the feature or something. But no, a German edition of the fabulous November issue appeared in my postbox on Friday!
I had already scanned my subscription English edition for my review (going live tomorrow – it’s worth waiting for, I promise!), so I flipped through the German version to see what differences there were. The first thing I noticed is that it’s a heftier magazine, and there are ads in it, along with more editorial pieces (like a feature on a Philadelphian artist), more fashion spreads (like this season’s ankle boots), and that all the pattern instructions and pattern sheets were pushed to the back, and in their own separate magazine!
How cool is this?! It’s perforated so you can separate out the pattern instructions entirely from the rest of the magazine, and the garment photos are printed on the back and inside covers. The pattern sheets are still held in with staples, but it makes it so much easier and neater if you wanted to store your patterns separately from the fashion magazine.
What do we have to do to get this feature in the English version, eh?
(Bonus points for those of you who remembered that this is not the first time I’ve been featured in the German edition of BurdaStyle – again in one of my favourite issues!)
