Do I like her because she was trained by John Gallianno, or because she worked for Alexander McQueen? No, though her impressive resume defiantly makes her an interest in the fashion word. As a designer, Anne Sofie Madsen creates the stunning head turning pieces you expect from couture, but in a way that makes them wearable and that is why I like her. Her pieces are crisp, clean, and futuristic, yet chic.
Her W/F 2012 collection takes inspiration from a tragic horror story: Sedna–the half skeleton and half human Inuit goddess of the underworld.
The skeleton of Sedna is depicted in the work with techniques inspired by carvings in Ivory from the Inuit tupilak figures. The human side of Sedna shows a more vivid figure expressed through the patterns and fringes covering the garments. Silhouettes inspired by Victorian menswear contribute to the atmosphere of the horrendous story.
Expressive and beautiful, this collection bring to life the characters of the 19th century horror literature.
