What a season this is turning out to be for sport! Pure adrenaline at the Football World Cup in Brazil, German Martin Kaymer wrote golf history by winning the U.S. Open in Augusta and the upcoming weeks are packed with exciting tournaments from all sorts of sports. But sport is not the only reason to make people’s hearts beat a little faster. The wedding season is in full swing, happy couples are marching down the aisles on their way to happily-ever-after. This month we have a special treat for those who are planning to get married in Switzerland. Our big wedding theme is packed with all you need to know should you wish to say yes in the homeland of Heidi. Romance is in the air and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate‘our’journalist Elisabeth on her wedding, she looked absolutely gorgeous in her white gown. Speaking of gowns leads us right to our next highlight in this issue. Fabulous fashion made in Germany is all about great designers with even greater collections. No other than Gerd Oliver Seidensticker, the President of GermanFashion Modeverband Deutschland e.V., explains why the world’s catwalk societies go crazy for fashion made in Germany. After Karl Lagerfeld, Wolfgang Joop and Jil Sander, German designers are on the rise again. Another very special treat this month is our cover star interview with comedy queen Mirja Boes. Seriously funny and a comedian by nature, she takes any audience by storm and is not afraid of trying new things. But beware, no one escapes her jokes.
