Anne Sofie Madsen took the Paris Fashion Week to present Fall Winter 2016 womenswear collection called Heaven or Las Vegas. The designer finds an inspiration in the fact that Elvis Presley was a twin-less twin and the story about life and death of his stillborn twin brother, Jesse Garon.
The silhouettes reflects the presence of both fantasy and reality. The experience of the fabrics, textures and embroideries in the collection, is an embodiment of the mystery that lies beneath all existence. The collection is an exploration of a parted human, searching and longing for the lost and unknown. Leather, feather embroideries, rubber strings and fur messed up, in a uncanny juxtapositions, combining spurious and glamorous, working class hero and tragic glam-clown. An invention and reinvention of the american dream. The embodiment of the effect of inner imagination, legend and fame. – from Anne Sofie Madsen
