Leon Emanuel Blanck - A tale about constructed rebellion (Metal Magazine)

Julie Siegmund has done a really good interview with Leon Emanuel Blanck for Metal Magazine.

"The German garment constructor Leon Emanuel Blanck captures the human anatomy with sheer complexity. Leather, organic seamlines and asymmetric patterns stand in the limelight of his craft. In an industry where the tactile connection between the garments and the creator seems to vanish, he has revived the craftsmanship by constructing anatomical patterns that are meticulously merged together. Within this realm, the designer grasps the essence of ventured rebellion against a meaningless and over-commercialized industry."
