Do you have a customer base?
There are a lot of regular customers, but someone always drops by spontaneously. That’s always different, too.
What was the biggest challenge?
Sewing the dress for Silke I, the Rose Queen in 1995. The most difficult thing was to reconcile her wishes with those of the city.
You decided to offer clothing as well?
Yes, to make the store more attractive. This way the store looks more inviting and I can always redecorate as well. And also the trips to the wholesalers are always exciting, what great new things are there now. It really livens up the store.
Is there anything you’d like to see from the city government?
Attracting more retailers is important. There needs to be more life in the city again. I’d rather have 10 more clothing stores and competition than empty stores and no life in the city center.
Why have you always remained loyal to Forst?
The question of moving away has never arisen. I am at home here.
