ANNE MARIE ROBICHEAU SAGUIL was born and raised in the Philippines to an American father and Filipina mother. Her college years were spent in California where she received her Bachelors degree in Textiles from the University of California, Davis and then later a degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco. She then spent many years working in New York City's fashion industry where she gained valuable experience in design and production.

Later wanting to reconnect with her roots, Saguil moved back to the Philippines and founded MOSAIC, which went on to become a leading women's clothing brand in the local retail scene. After a successful ten year run with her first fashion label, Saguil decided it was time to listen to a long persistent desire to explore deeper into the art of Filipino embroidery and the value of sustainable slow fashion. Thus AMARIE was born, this time with a larger mission of celebrating Filipino craftsmanship while sustaining livelihoods and making a positive impact in her beloved Philippines.

We present to you a fashionably global aesthetic which serves to promote and uplift Filipino artisans and craftsmanship. The result is a distinctly artisanal stylish collection with unmistakable global flair and a relaxed seasonless resort vibe.

impact & sustainability

Creative director, Anne Robicheau Saguil, shares her passion for artisanal slow fashion through designs that use hand embroidered tradition and artistry. Skillfully crafted pieces are created with the aim of providing viable continued livelihoods for partner artisans, while preserving and uplifting local heritage techniques.

At AMARIE we believe in a slow fashion ideology and the intrinsic value of each piece of clothing. From remote outlying towns to our small workshop in Manila, we produce stylish handcrafted collections in small sustainable batches allowing for a thoughtful creative design process and environmentally mindful practices throughout.

In 2022, the brand expanded its collection to include globally sourced fabrications of various heritage and printing techniques - from hand block, silk screen, to hand woven craftsmanship.
