My name is Anna Maria Krestina Gunnarsson I am a creative professional from Sweden with ambitions to make sustainable textiles and products accessible in the industry and beyond.
I moved to Amsterdam in 2013 in pursuit of working with quality garments. I began working as a garment technologist at Levi’s XX which gave me the experience with vintage and craft clothing. For almost six years, I worked on Development and Production for the environmentally conscious and socially progressive denim brand, Kings of Indigo. Here I developed sustainable innovations with success.
In 2017, I began creative side-projects from my own atelier and two years later, decided to let go of the full-time job to give full focus to my professional dreams.
AMK Atelier is my Amsterdam based creative studio. I’m specializes in Technical Design, Garment Technology, Visual Merchandising and creative projects involving upcycling, recycling and natural dyeing.
I have an education in Fashion and Textile Design, a further education in Garment Technology and experience in Visual Merchandising.
