History and profileEdit

In 1949, Aenne Burda expanded her family business into women's magazines publishing when she founded a fashion magazine printing and publishing company in her home town Offenburg, Germany. The same year she started publishing a magazine named Favorit, which was later renamed to Burda Moden. The first issue of Burda Moden magazine was published in 1950 with a circulation of 100,000 (in January).[citation needed] It gained a great popularity in the market, especially since 1952, when they began to include sheets of paper with patterns for clothes.

In 1987, Burda fashion was the first Western magazine to be published in the Soviet Union[1] and in 1994 also the first Western magazine to appear in the People’s Republic of China.[2]

Burda Style launched in the United States in 2013 in partnership with F+W Media.[3][4]
