Murmuration is a collection that is inspired by nature and refined into clean simple lines that are both modern and approachable at the same time. I find inspiration in everything from objects, such as nautiluses and feathers, lines, and textures found in nature.

My name is Anna-Marie, but all of my friends call me Minkie. I taught myself to sew in college, and I have been sporadically sewing and designing since then. The goal of my designs is to create clothes that are interesting and unique, but also comfortable and wearable on a day to day basis. I am in charge of the design work, sampling, patterning, correspondence, and a lot of the production both Murmation and my vintage styled shop, Minxshop…

My name is Anna-Marie, but all of my friends call me Minkie. I taught myself to sew in college, and I have been sporadically sewing and designing since then.

I work in tandem with my mom who helps me with making accessories, shipping, packaging, and general organizing. She lives in Pittsburgh, and is going to school full time for occupational therapy. She keeps my generally sane and down to earth, and is the only reason that my shop has a filing cabinet. I've also been getting help with some of the production work from my friend Tanya. She is a stay at home mom, who is honestly a better seamstress than I am, and much better cook to boot. I have so much to learn from them!

All of my clothes are created in small runs. Some of the fabrics I buy are mill end, which means once they are gone, you won’t see them again! I like to use lace, sheer meshes, silks and lots of jersey. I am especially enamored with tencel and bamboo which I try to use whenever possible. Everything you buy from me is well made, and built to last for a long time.
