Anne-Sofie Madsen fashion illustrations

-Strong colorfull and pretty awesome actually, this is how i would describe Anne-Sofie Madsen style , at least her drawings, but apparently she's as talented to translate her vision into actual fashion pieces, check her work and appreciate the strong character et sexiness of her clothes line.
Words from Anne-Sofie Madsen

In traditional Maori art the most dominant, mythical motif is the “avianised man” or “bird-woman”. The most important visual art forms are plaiting, relief carving and tattoo.
My idea in this collection was to combine (and confront) this with classic, European clothing - in order to express the contrasts and borders between what we see as primitive/civilianized, exotic/classic and barbaric/elegant.
My idea was not to create bird suits or folk costumes and I decided not to use feathers in the garments and to “translate” the traditional materials of the Maori. I used shoelaces instead of flax strips and exchanged tattooed skin with leather applied on invisible tulle. :"
