The magazine specialized in fashion and pattern making is published ten times a year as a turnaround edition with topics on women’s and men’s fashion. The magazine is available for download in English. Each issue of M. Müller & Sohn magazine contains an enclosed sewing pattern.
On the womenswear pages we present the big trends on the catwalk and show feminine blazers with flounces, cut-outs and asymmetrical fastening. In the pattern section we have also provided blazers with power, you will find instructions for the pattern construction of four models: The double-breasted blazer with rising lapels as a classic, a model with sexy cut-outs breaks with the stuffy office image of the blazer, in one model a lapel flap becomes an eye-catcher, another with a cut peplum looks soft and feminine. We present a portrait of Guido Maria Kretschmer’s life with fashion. Learning from experienced partners, chalking up setbacks as learning effects – not without detours, but with strategy and confidence, GMK made a name for himself in the field of corporate fashion, for which he is just as famous today as for his ready-to-wear collections, his couture and his TV shows.
On the menswear pages, we present the runway trend of the latest menswear: the lapel is the face of the suit and has an impact on the overall appearance of the wearer. By designing the lapels width, shape and position of the crochet seam, the lapel can be realised in countless variations: Vintage flair by wide lapels, minimalist high-necked and much more. We tell you about the big anniversary: the Florentine fashion fair Pitti turns 100! We give you an insight into the development of the fair, new focal points in menswear and a glimpse ahead to the future of menswear. Afterwards, the cutting technique deals with the grading of tailcoats and waistcoats, i.e. the translation of tried and tested, elaborated cuts into other sizes. In the interview with costume designer Martin König, you will learn exciting facts about working materials in transition, for example, which traditional working materials have become obsolete and which modern alternatives work well. In her column Fashion is political, author Ronja Ebeling draws attention to the financial problems faced by apprentices in tailoring on the one hand and by the companies that train them on the other hand.
The enclosed pattern contains two different pleated skirts for ladies (in sizes 36 – 46).
