How did u develop the idea of your video about kimonos?
Mata Leon Kimonos is the only JiuJitsu Kimono company in Turkey, one of the few in Europe. It is owned & designed by my friend Emre Sarisoy who also happens to be my teammate at Balaban JiuJitsu team. I shoot TV commercials, music videos, fashion, and short fiction. I'm always up for shooting new and different stuff. I had this idea of shooting an action scene for a while when I met Emre. It was when we included leather harness designer Elif Domanic as the lead actress, the project got interesting. - elifdomanic.com

How do u see the Turkey fashion scene?
It's a big, promising market. Great talent and some very respectful designers here. But overall Turkish fashion scene could do with a little more diversity and bolder concepts for my money.
