Guido Maria Kretschmer: He also avoids outside contacts

Even the star designer Guido Maria Kretschmer (55) is not without a trace of the corona crisis. "Of course, professionally, it is also a big cut, as with a great many," explains the 55-year-old in an interview with the news agency spot on news. "I am an artist myself and work in the creative field. Of course we have big problems not only to continue producing our programs, but also to be able to implement all the other projects as usual."

One of these projects: "Murder in the Orient Express". A play by and with actress Katharina Thalbach (66). Kretschmer is responsible for the costumes. "It is of course fatal if everything has to be canceled indefinitely a week before the premiere. A lot of orders and moderations had to be canceled or postponed. Of course this is a big cut, also for me," he continues.

What is the future of the fashion industry?

Fashion, like many other industries, will have to consolidate. "Maybe the production channels will be reconsidered and the style of the classic fashion show will change for sure. I think everything will be a little more national, models will come from the nearer region and you won't travel that far for fashion productions either," says Blick Kretschmer into the future. "We will have a lot of cuts, like every other area. But you have to say that the fashion industry has always been an industry that has had to organize itself. It is a very own and creative cosmos and I think that we will definitely find a solution to present our fashion anew in the future and still maintain the magic that fashion needs. "

"I avoid external contacts"

And how does the designer personally experience the corona restrictions? "We are currently in a phase in which the restrictions are loosening up a bit again. Personally, I still try to hold back by avoiding external contacts and protecting myself with all the options that are available to me. I will "As long as possible, try to handle it like this. Of course, I am now working more again, but under new protection options. For me, like many others, a certain isolation, thank God, is not over yet. The support is still needed by everyone, so that the risk of infection, especially for high-risk groups, becomes less and less. "

Commitment to domestic violence

The star designer is currently involved with many other celebrities in the #icherheim initiative – a campaign against domestic violence against women. A global crime that has been exacerbated by corona-related measures. "It just must not happen that you are exposed to violence at home. That is why it is an issue that really deserves support," said Kretschmer. In addition to the designer, cycling Olympic champion Kristina Vogel, moderator Frauke Ludowig and "Tatort" star Jan Josef Liefers are also involved. Actress Natalia Wörner is the patron of the initiative.
