Anne Marie brought her passion for fashion to The Dells and showcased it on Saturday, April 5th. The event kicked off with a ribbon cutting ceremony where Anne’s adorable daughter June proudly cut the giant red ribbon and opened the doors to her mother’s world of alterations and design.
What would a fashion house gala be without a fashion showcase? The afternoon continued as friends of Anne’s modeled a few of her favorite designs. Meanwhile, those in attendance could enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and drinks while inquiring about any clothing items they took an interest in. The event concluded with giveaways and each guest left with a swag bag and a generous discount on their next alteration by Anne.
Anne has been sewing and honing her love for fashion since the young age of eight. After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design from the Illinois institute of Art: Chicago, she had the honor of assisting with Chicago’s first fashion week in 2005; working for several high profile designers including Betsey Johnson.
Anne has worked in retail and fashion since then, while also starting her business here in Wisconsin Dells. From alterations to full-fledged customized design pieces, Anne does it all! Whether you’re looking for home décor, a stunning dress for an event, everyday fashionable clothing items, or costumes, Anne has you covered and will go well out of her way to deliver quality items that are special and unique to your style.
Located at S248a County Road A, Anne’s new studio has a light and open feel complete with a Paris design theme that overall gives the impression of an adorable yet chic country business in France. The open space gives Anne plenty of room to do the multiple projects she’s always working on, as she stays incredibly busy with clients. Speaking of clients, they are sure to love the platform and three dimensional mirror that allows them to see all of Anne’s handiwork from every angle so they’ll feel assured they look fabulous in their newly altered or custom made garment. The comfortable changing rooms give clients the privacy they desire while allowing the natural light to show just how your clothes will look in everyday lighting. The studio truly is the ideal space for both clients and Anne to launch what is sure to be a very successful business.
Overall it was a perfectly sunny, spring Saturday full of fashion, friends, food, and fun. The Dells is thrilled to welcome Anne and her inspiring design talents! To view Anne’s other beautiful work and learn more about her new studio head to: http://www.annemariefashionhouse.com/.
