Lara is a passionate, creative fashion designer, who has gained significant and broad work experience in the fashion industry working for global players like Adidas and C&A in both women and men design. She is keeping abreast of global socio-cultural dynamics and keeps her key focus on creating human-centric design solutions that answer the technology, sustainability and business needs of the modern consumers.
Currently, based in Berlin and starting her freelance career, she joined the Zero Waste Festival Berlin team as an advisor in sustainable fashion. Taking on this role with passion and motivation, her goals are to share her knowledge, grow and connect the sustainable fashion design community and get her hands on sustainable projects. In her opinion, it is fact that the way clothes are made has not kept pace with the acceleration of how they are designed and marketed and now the fashion system has outsized environmental and humanistic effects and needs a drastic change. It is this need for change, that she is driven to answer/contribute to by constantly growing her expertise in sustainable fashion and combining it with her broad work experience.
