29 years old

My name is Anne-Sophie (Anso) RANDRIAMAHANINA. I am mixed French and Malagasy and grew up in Madagascar, before studying Fashion Design in Paris from 2012 to 2016. After completing my studies, I came to South Africa in 2016 to learn English for 6 months, but quickly fell in love with Cape Town!

I th


en started to sell some of my jewellery in and around the city.
Realising then that my business was doing well, I decided to return home and came back to SA with a new visa. Upon my return, I officially established my accessories brand, 'The Amazing Work of AN'SO', in 2017.

Since then, I created my online store in 2018 and have been selling my designs all over SA and at different markets and events around Cape Town.
My brand, just like me, keeps growing! The recent addition of upcycled clothing to my range of products is very exciting and I am looking forward to do even more!

"The Amazing Work of AN’SO is a funky and colourful slow fashion brand established in 2017 in Cape Town by Anne-Sophie RANDRIAMAHANINA (aka Anso). Anso is the fairy maker behind every pieces!
Every design is handmade by herself in her home-studio in Cape Town with much love and care. She creates unique upcycled jewelleries and fashion using random everyday life “trash” such as empty lighters or can openers. She also creates magical and beautiful accessories out of semi-precious gemstones from Madagascar.

Originally from there, and deeply inspired by the ways of her people, Anso believes that everyones trash is someone else treasures! So she creatively, and with a touch of free spirited and punk-ish style, upcycles old and forgotten jewels and fabric into new one-of-a-kind amazing pieces!

The Amazing Work of AN’SO is a slow fashion brand for the soft rebels, the non-conformist, the stylish carefree spirits and the conscious ones that do what they feel like doing when they want to, but always in respect of others and nature."
