Daniel Henry, textile designer at the Maison d'Exceptions show


(English subtitles available)
“I’m Daniel Henry, a freelance textile designer. I specialize in textile printing and finishing, with great attention to detailing and textures, rather than patterns. I’m very eclectic in my choice of techniques, I’m very interested in craftsmanship even if I do a lot of printing and finishing – I do lots of different finishing, whether mechanical or chemical – and I use a lot of combinations of embroidery, painting and knitting.
 For me, innovation is inspired by tradition so it’s true that I’m someone who loves to hunt for antiques. It’s really by looking at old textiles that I get ideas for contemporary designs. I love working with old skills and combining them with the most current technologies to create precisely this contemporaneousness.”
