Andersen studied fashion at Danmarks Designskole, design and drawing at Akademiet for Tegning og Desig and has worked for John Galliano in Paris.
Andersen was selected by a jury that consisted of Robb Young (Herald Tribune, Financial Times und Diptrics), Diane Pernet, Mandi Lennard (PR: Gareth Pugh, Cassette Playa, POP), Hermann Frankhauser (Wendy & Jim), Joseph Quartana (Head Buyer Seven New York), hereby leaving competitors from various scandinavian countries behind.
Andersen says about her fashion:
“I am in constant battle with the lack of fantasy in the adult world so i try to emphasize that conflict in my collections. The naive and sometimes a bit romantic designs get a certain edge when placed in contrast with reality.
