Anne Sofie Madsen is relatively old school in terms of many of the designers we feature, having launched her own label in 2012. The designer’s background is the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, followed by John Galliano in Paris and then Alexander McQueen in London – a grounding in the principles of uncompromising, expansive and edgy design if ever there was one.

The aesthetic produces a complex range of emotions, with contrast and contradiction at its heart. Ultra feminine ruffles casually styled, ladylike street looks, ambivalent silhouettes and intensely attention seeking details thrown together as one. As the years have gone on, the label’s collections have taken on a more polished hue and the result is pieces that are less ambivalent about being wearable but more focused on being exceptionally out of the ordinary.

An obsession with failures and a focus on faults has given Anne Sofie Madsen more depth than a simple desire for perfection. Like many others before her, the designer has run with the idea that it’s in the imperfections that the most compelling interest lies.
