Ann Sofie Madsen: Futuristic craftmanship

A graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Anne Sofie Madsen has an impressive resume. The talented designer has worked for acclaimed trend forecasters Peclers and Alexander McQueen and trained under John Galliano for Dior in Paris before launching her debut collection during London Fashion Week 2010.

The designer’s vision is “… to show the well-known through the un-known and to use traditional handcraft methods and couture techniques within ready-to-wear”. Indeed, her pieces are beautifully poetic, artistic and futuristic.

“Anne Sofie Madsen experiments with materials such as leather applied to a fine mesh base, built-up collars with unconventional patterns, and hand-drawn illustrations printed digitally on silk or wool fabrics. The consistent play with contrasts and materials creates a look of mixed toughness and fragility to each design.”

Here are some pieces that I love.
