What is more exciting than fashion? Just one thing: When fashion meets art! Today I want to take you with me to the odd and bizarre world of Anne-Sophie Cochevelou. This woman crosses these borders with an extraordinary virtuosity and is not afraid to experiment at all.

Anne-Sophie is a young designer of fashion costume and jewellery from Paris. She graduated at Central Saint Martins London with a MA in Performance Practice and Design. Her work is full of various cultural references. It's not about trends at all, but a mixture of fashion and performance art.

The toys of her childhood are Anne-Sophie's biggest inspiration and especially dolls are omnipresent in her work. She says that since she is too old to play with them, she discovered to wear them as a piece of art and wear them out. Anne-Sophie is a master of creating the most extraordinary looks from found, used and unwanted materials. Dresses don't need to be made out of fabric in Anne-Sophies creative world, but everything can be worn.

When I found Anne-Sophie's blog, I immediately felt a strong connection between her and me, even if what I wear is so much more commercial than her work. Is her work fashion or anti-fashion? I don't care, it's wonderful in it's colourful vibrancy and it makes me dream. Anne-Sophie Cochevelou, Sara is in Love with you and hopes to see in a doll dress on the streets of London one day!
