Impressive, alienous, edgy: designer to watch, Anne Sofie Madsen

How things are presented on a runway and how they eventuate in a look book are sometimes two different things. The showmanship can be amped up for the former and played down when it comes to putting stock on shelves, but thankfully Anne Sofie Madsen’s stellar fall 2012 collection – which we first admired on the runway at Copenhagen fashion week – doesn’t lose any of its Avant Garde edge in translation. The collection’s look book may feel a little less dramatic, but that mostly comes down to simplified hair and makeup.

Madsen’s eponymous label is still in its infancy, but with the marriage of clean, Scandinavian minimalism and impressively complex detail that weave together in her fall collection, it makes perfect sense that the Danish-born designer trained under Galliano and McQueen.

Filled with alienous prints and biological looking 3-dimensional shapes, Madsen’s impressive fall collection makes her one to keep a keen eye on.
