Danish born Astrid Andersen graduated at the top of her class from the prestigious Royal College of Art MA course in 2010.
Her graduate collection received huge acclaim from the industry and jump-started the Astrid Andersen own label which has been growing ever since as a result of fantastic press coverage riding high on the current trend for luxurious street style design.
In 2010 Astrid Andersen was a finalist in ITS NINE as well as being nominated as Talent 2010 by Italian VOUGE. Whilst studying at the Royal College of Art Astrid also won the Brioni Creativity and Innovation Award and the River Island MA Student Bursary Award designing 3 looks for the high street retailer.
In 2011 Astrid Andersen held her first independent show in Copenhagen receiving enthusiastic appraisal and continuing to attract incredible international press and buyers she was also represented in London as a part of the widely acclaimed Fashion East installation in Somerset House.
As a result Astrid Andersen is now based in both London and Copenhagen, using the best of two worlds by working and manufacturing from her studio in Copenhagen - reassuring the high level of quality of each garment whilst having the collections represented in UK to ensure the creative philosophy behind the designs.
