LEMANUEL – being a dancer influenced my design, playing with taboos and genders

It is a period of reflection and relates to aesthetics, taking place before considering the restraints of production. Intw Manuel Calabrese

How do you bring a vision into full-fruition? Forming ideas, images and concepts means to operate beyond the input of our physical senses. 
It is a period of reflection and relates to aesthetics, taking place before considering the restraints of production. Design is the process that precedes the discipline of manufacturing. Our Fashion Editor Giorgia Fuzio in conversation with Manuel Calabrese, founder of LEMANUEL.

LEMANUEL mood
LISA LYON WITH VEIL BY ROBERT MAPPLETHORP

I was a ballet Dancer since the age of 5. For all my life I’ve been in contact with the body itself and his boundaries as well as the expression of art and beauty of many artists I worked with. I think those might be the main reasons why I decided then to study Fashion. Those are personally two of the first pictures ever that get me completely inside the world of Design. I was doing research on Genders related to Phisycal details for one of my project in POLIMODA, and I get into those projects by two of the minds that still now are influencing my way to re-think the concept of body related to fashion. I am inspired by art, sculptures, photography, and everything that might be related to our inner Human instincts. Being a Dancer influenced my design through a constant research of body and sexual awareness playing with taboos and genders. At the same time, I also feel is important in our society right now to have open eyes on what is going on, in order to make interesting designs, aesthetic and technical skills are not everything, we must have a “radical” point of view and I’m sure till now mine can be unusual but very clear.
