CAROLIN LERCH / FASHION DESIGNER / ANTWERP


How can politics encourage creativity and innovation?
What is most important is for the conditions to be conducive to progress. The urge to be creative stems from individual motives, but for this there must be a social context, so that people do not act in a vacuum. The public must interact with the creative industries.

What do you like best about Antwerp?
The central location of the city in the middle of Europe and the cultural mix in Antwerp that comes as a matter of course. This forces you to be cosmopolitan and not to consider yourself all that important.

What should the world know about your work?
With pelican avenue I strive to develop an authentic, independent and visual language, step by step, a structure that should be reflected both in the collection and in the presentation.
