ANFRACTUOUS DISTORTION was created by ignoring regular pattern making methods. While developing this collection, Leon solely used larger pieces of fabric and formed them directly on the human body. During the forming process, normal seams were completely ignored – this resulted in atypical silhouettes that showcase extremely unique and complicated patterns.

Every piece in the collection was shaped using this method with some of the pieces being constructed into sculptures using a process adapted from naval architecture.
