Hello Craftstylish!comments (4) December 20th, 2010
I'm Alison Kelly, the Editor and Creative Director of BurdaStyle.com, another fantastic online sewing community offering pattern downloads, tutorials, discussion platforms and fashion/sewing related blogs. I am pleased to announce that BurdaStyle and Craftstylish have teamed up to share some of our favorite content!
At BurdaStyle I play the role of Editor and Creative Director. I am quite grateful for this expereince as it fills up a part of my soul that's deeply connected to the process of sewing, pattern-making, design construction and the sharing of useful information and inspiration. Something you may not know about me is that I was a contestant on Project Runway Season 3 (the season Jeffery with the tattooed neck won)! I believe Project Runway to be a forerunner in the resurgance of today's new sewers and d.i.y. fashion designers around the globe--and for that I am excited about the attention young designers and creative people have gotten because of it. I'm also a fashion designer, based in New York city, where I design a collection of womenswear and custom pieces under my label, dahl.
I write two weekly blogs for BurdaStyle; A Young Designer's Diary and an Editor's Pick column. Both columns are dedicated to the craft of sewing, the art of design and my experiences in the fashion industry. I am excited to be a part of a new community of creative people and look forward to meeting some of you!
