Day 46 – Happy Birthday, Berliner Chic!February 15, 2012
Berliner Chic is one year old. It was released last February. My co-author Susan and I had our first book launch in Toronto on February 4th, before the official release. Then we had a book launch in Montreal on March 4th, and finally one in Berlin on June 22nd.
In just one year, our little book has come a long way, launching a whole series of “Urban Chic” books (Vienna and Montreal Chic to come!) . Last summer it was used as part of assigned readings for a Berlin fashion history course at the Free University in Berlin. We’ve had a lot of people (in the fashion industry and academics) contacting us and sharing their work with us (in Vancouver, Berlin, Montreal, Vienna, and Toronto). We gave multiple talks and got positive feedback from our reviewers.
It makes me very happy to see that our work has inspired others and has been helpful for anyone interested in the culture of cities and fashion. I am so grateful to everyone who has been and continues to support, inspire, and encourage our work. Thank you for reading!
