Switching from a fashion blog to a magazine was perceived like a big career stepping stone by the public. Weiß quickly opted for doing her own project again, though: Journelles.
The incident makes us think of Susie Bubble. The excentric blooger worked in the online editorial of Dazed&Confused for a short time, however decided against working a renowned magazine to do pursue her own project. Her fashion blog. Anzeichen des Wandels.
Katja from LesMads spoke to Jessica Weiß about her comeback. A sympathetic move. They talk about the idea behind Journelles, the German fashion blogosphere, and the success criteria of a blog.
A very entertaining interview and therefore our recommendation for today’s good read:
LesMads: Congratulations to your new website Journelles, it turned out very well! How does it feel to be back as a fulltime-blogger, or Blogazine owner after a one-year break?
Jessica Weiß: Thanks very much! It feels great being my own boss again. Leaving LesMads feels like it’s been much longer than ‘only’ a year – so it’s great being featured now at my ‘preveious home’.

The ebola-epedemic has spread out massively. After an infected nurse has been put under quarantine and has been receiving treatment in Madrid, the virus has found it’s first victim in Germany: the MICHALSKY ‘Style Nite’ hosted by the fashion-designer Michael Michalsky.
The party-lion of the Berlin fashion week has cancelled his big fashion-show, which has marked the end of the fashion week ever since. The reason: Ebola.
Michalsky told the press: ‘Maybe we can not save the world, but we can help to make it better. That is why I have decided to relinquish on the StyleNite and to donate the money, which is usually invested into the fashion-event, to ‘Doctors without Borders’. Some people may won’t understand this, but I can not host a big party in Berlin and celebrate fashion, if meanwhile there is immediate help needed in Africa. I am not a doctor and therefore am unable to help directly, so I would like to be active in a different way.’
30.000,- euros is planned to be transferred to the help-organisation ‘Doctors without Borders’, which they do not know yet, by the Michalsky Holding.
If the previous sponsoring-partners, who have carried the main costs of the ‘Style Nite’, are also going to donate their money, is not sure. BMW as DHL were not able to give statements on short notice.
What we are asking ourselves here at the Dandy-Office the whole time: Why him, why Michi? Why his always totally amusing and champagne-drunken ‘Style Nite’?
That is so unfair! Couldn’t have been someone else? Maybe Kilian Kerner. Or Guido Maria Kretschmer! Then the world would have been served, at least in the michalskyic state of mind – and maybe it could even be saved.
Who is designing the hottest running-shit ? Jun Takashi, of-course.
The Japanese, who has made made a name for himself in the business with his cult-label UNDERCOVER, has been designing for NIKE performance-wear for a few seasons already, which, we are sure about that, makes every hobby-athlete look better.
In times of the never-ending sport-trend you can, no, must not only wear pieces from the NIKE x Undercover Gyakusou Holiday 2014 collection when you are not sweating and running through the city, to get rid of uncanny pounds, but also when your are at a club, at your next Grindr or Tinder date, with your family, everywhere all the time.
Takashi himself is a passionate runnter. Him and his GIRA running crew have tested all the items personally. New insights of the Nike research lab have influenced the collection as-well. The collection is available from the 23rd of october 2014 on, in NikeLab stores world-wide as online at Nike.
