Andalusian buffet

Probably it's a commonplace to associate the name
Andalusia with flamenco, sevillanas, bullfighting,
Jerez's sherry and the Moorish architectural legacy
yet doing it denotes the rich source of inspiration
provided to artists and designers such as
Leandro Cano, a gifted young couturier 
based in Barcelona.

Inspired by his childhood memories (he was born
in Jaen, north of Granada, in 1984 and studied at
the CEADE Leonardo Escuela de Diseño y Comunicación 

 in Seville), his family women and ”dreams that I have
had since I was born”, Leandro creates classy couture
pieces skillfully balancing tradition and modernity.

His latest AW 12/13 ”Buffet” collection shows an
individual theatrical femininity with a hard work on
volumes, emphasizing shoulders and hips and
a gripping mixture of fine fabrics with great
attention to details so it's small wonder that it
has been selected by Marc Jacobs among the
finalists in DfT, 'Designer for Tomorrow', the
newcomer talent award originally created in 2009 by
Peek & Cloppenburg KG in Düsseldorf as a 
steppingstone for neophytes to enter the fashion 
industry with all their fresh artistry.
