Maori MadnessSeptember 3, 2009
Another graduate collection, this time by Anne-Sofie Madsen, from the Danish Design School. She’s taken the graphic themes from Maori culture and mixed them with Western fabrics and cuts. Tattoos become translated into cording over sheer fabrics, bird-suits are suggested in wool rather than feathers, or in the cut of the shoulders. The results are exquisitely beautiful, neatly balancing the influences so that the results are simultaneously exotic and classic.
