Burda's crafting unit Burda Create! launches the "Burda Beginner" brand, which is aimed at sewing beginners. Burda Beginner also addresses themes such as sustainability, self-expression and experimentation.
The internationally operating business unit Burda Create! acquires the license for the monthly sewing magazine Fashion Style that provides detailed instructions and tips for about 30 different sewing designs on 84 pages. The first issue licensed by Burda will be available in stores from April 22 at €6.90.
Fashion Style covers a wide range of styles – from sporty to feminine, casual to business. The sewing magazine offers patterns for women’s fashion in sizes 34 to 54, children and baby designs, ‘mini & me’ as well as men’s patterns – in other words, self-sewn fashion for the whole family. The magazine also features styling tips as well as practical and technical information.
„The Do-it-yourself segment will benefit significantly from the extra time spent at home because people want to use this time as creative and meaningful as possible. Our portfolio of sewing titles consists of Burda Style, the leading international fashion magazine in the sewing segment, Burda Easy for sewing beginners and the newest addition Fashion Style focusing on self-sewn, everyday fashion. After the successful launch of Burda Knitting at the end of 2019, we are now offering four subscription titles in the do-it-yourself segment which enables us to fully respond to the diverse needs of our readers.”
Henning Röper, CEO Burda Create!
