Are you exotic, romantic, edgy or all business? Take a tour of bernette's "My World" website and see which style fits you best. Share your original garments inspired by your style in our contest gallery by September 30, 2012, 11:59 pm EST and you could win a bernette 25 sewing machine from BERNINA! Garments must be made by you, but you can use any pattern, fabrics, or techniques you'd like. Be sure to tell us a little about your garment and why it fits your "My World" style. This doesn't have to be a new garment. This could be something new for this contest, or a project you've been working on for a while. 

See official rules for details and learn more about your style below.

bernette 'My World' Styles

Exotic – a look born under the southern stars. Africa has inspired many couturiers and designers, with international catwalks showcasing one breathtaking exotic-look creation after another. This style harmoniously combines western fashion with elements of African folklore. A mix of patterns and bright colors with chic, light caftan styles radiates charm, even in the metropolitan jungle! High wedges and chunky wooden or leather jewelry perfectly accessorize this outfit.

For several years now, this Edgy style has been acceptable in polite society. In fact, this look is all the rage, since a nostalgic vintage boudoir style offers a marvelous contrast to the rest of mainstream fashion. Edgy showcases the 'Snow White' look: pale skin, black hair and red lips, wasp waist, sexy corset, mega-high heels and perfect makeup. Black, red, cream and gold are the defining colors of this look. The styles are figure-hugging and sexy, without descending into brashness. Lacing and trim provide clever accents in just the right places.

Ruffles and flounces, a touch of pink combined with neutral beige and powder shades – that's the playful romantic look. For materials, silk-satin, delicate chiffon and viscose mixes fit the bill, with the variety of fabrics creating lively, appealing garments with a particularly polished style. Classy fabrics and multiple layers lend a grown-up, modern feel to this look, which swirls around the body with gently draping, figure-hugging cuts. 

Forget about a conservative approach to business wear. Our intention here is to inject a bit of individual, up-to-the-minute style into the business world without breaking the rules governing office apparel. The secret: recycling! For this, all you need is a couple of men's business shirts or a few nice business-style fabric remnants which can be cleverly sewn together into this feminine outfit. Fabrics such as cotton, flannel or viscose appeal owing to their clear-cut yet discreet colours, which fit seamlessly into the business world. The styles are classy yet unconventional, and very feminine to boot.
