THE BRANDAMARIE is artisanal luxury urban resortwear inspired by urban life in the Philippine tropics. We present to you a fashionably global aesthetic which serves to promote and uplift Filipino artisans. AMARIE celebrates the beauty and age-old traditions of the Philippines, and at the same time commits to positively impacting the lives of the women whose artistry and craft are the core of the designs. The result is a distinctly artisanal collection of unmistakable global flair and a relaxed seasonless resort vibe.
Creative director, Anne Marie Saguil, takes inspiration from her life in the Philippine tropics. A Filipina-American designer travelling between the Philippine islands and the United States, Saguil shares her passion for craftsmanship and slow fashion through designs that use hand embroidered techniques and indigenous hand woven materials. Fusing modern design and local artistry, we create current handcrafted pieces with the aim of providing viable sustainable livelihoods. AMARIE believes in a sustainable slow fashion ideology and the intrinsic value of each piece of clothing. From our small workshop in Manila, we produce crafted wearable pieces in small batches allowing for a thoughtful creative process and quality throughout.
