made-to-measure debut

Last week in Denmark's capital city during
Copenhagen fashion week, local designer
Anne Sofie Madsen made known her new
capsule collection containing both made
to measure and ready to wear pieces that
fully show her design and sartorial skills.

Anne Sofie studied fashion and production
design at Danish Design School, the esteemed
educational institute promoted by Danish Ministry
of Culture, before gaining work experience chez
Galliano and Peclers in Paris and as junior
designer at Alexander McQueen's in London.

She made her name in 2009 as one of the most
promising Danish talents with a soft and severe
graduate collection and moreover with her unique
illustrations: Anne Sofie actually is a fine 
illustrator whose works have been published 
in international magazines and books.

In 2010 she established her own label
presenting her first couture-inspired collection
during February's edition of London fashion
week's 'Vauxall Scout Show' but the one in
Copenhagen last week was her very first
motherland fashion show.

Showing her own transformation from creating
entirely couture-inspired or 'made-to-measure'
collections into more wearable pieces, the
sterling s/s 2012 collection called 'Mononoke'
by Miyazaki's animated movie 'Princess
Mononoke', is plenty of textural effects with
hints of Gareth Pugh's or Iris van Herpen's,
skillfully trying to apprehend couture's
detailed finish within RTW.
