This post is so late, I could basically wish you a merry Christmas at the same time, but I was super busy writing my exams and moving to Bangkok. So from my new apartment between palm trees and my pool (oh my god my apartment complex has a pool) I’m writing this very belated post about a very cool event back in cold ass Berlin: the Kisura + Microsoft new work style event. For all of you who might not know: Kisura is a German online style counselling website where your own stylist puts together a box with different outfits for you – individually matched with your requests and for free.
Bloggers and stylists got together, got spoiled with delicious vegan finger food, discussed the new demands of today’s job and finally got to get creative and shoot our own interpretation of future office looks. Not online the creative industry is undergoing a change: Old, hierarchical structures are loosening up, work is getting more versatile and outfits are adapting to a new lifestyle that celebrates freedom, creative new ways to define work and modern living situations. Today’s companies show a change that has to be transferred onto fashion. Who used to put on a pencil skirt and a blazer, went to work and sat at the desk all day long, may today combine a pair of pants with a loud print with a blouse and sneakers. Why? To not only express that creative thinking also means creative dressing, but even more to be ready for just about everything. You might spend the day at your desk, but you might also have a meeting, followed by a lunch with your investors and a cocktail party in the evening.
