Seller was very helpful when our Swedish postal system failed me once again. I truly hate the privatization of my packages deliveries!!

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE my pants! I only wish I ordered in black when you had them:( I’m 5’7 and 155lbs. Normally size 12 and the XL fit me perfectly if that helps anyone. The fabric was so comfy with some stretch which helps when your curvy. I know your making room for the new but I hope you still incorporate some unique styles such as these that you had or even maybe more with velvet:)

Anna contacted me pre purchase regarding my sizing .I had ordered this but hadn’t realised it was in small size.After checking my measurements.as suggested by Anna,realised I would not fit the small.As she did not have the vest in the larger size,Anna happily swapped my vest for a lovely short sleeve dress…which I love.
Anna is a pleasure to deal with and really cares about her customers.
Create Yourself. Who do you want to be today?
Life is a stage, your clothing is your costume.
I have been a circus and theatre performer my whole life, my love of sewing comes from the same passion: I love theatricality that amplifies everyday emotions and makes life more playful.
Circus life is demanding: Clothes must be comfortable, flexible and strong, while remaining as expressive as you are. They should never hold you back.
My creative process is a conversation with the materials. Fabrics seduce me and tell me how they wish to be used. Then I sew obsessively to make the ideas real.
I make all of my clothes with love. A love of fabrics, a love of creation, and a love of sharing.
They are crafted with the warm conviction that clothes should be stylish, flattering, comfortable and practical. These are the values that go into every single design, and always will.
The nuts and bolts of the process is this: In my studio I custom-make orders for stage costumes and spectacular outfits for performers and other clients.
I also make most of my own clothes. It is these clothes that become the prototypes for my clothing collection. The clothes have to pass these 2 simple tests: I have to love wearing them & they have to receive a lot of compliments.
For many years I got constant requests from friends and acquaintances to make them clothing, but there is only so much one person can do! Eventually a friend convinced me to go and investigate getting other tailors to sew the clothes for me, so that I could share my clothing with the world.
Production of my collection takes place in Milan, Italy, and Bali, Indonesia. I personally buy all the fabrics, threads, buttons and accessories. I design my fabric prints, get them made into silk screens and work with a small silk-screening business. I take the fabrics to get dyed in my favourite colours. I work with an individual tailor in Italy and a small locally owned workshop in Bali- where I get the cloth cut and sewn. The people I work with are highly skilled and have a great attention to detail.
They also uphold workplace values that I consider essential: A wonderful physical and social working environment (spacious, light, healthy and full of laughter), strictly observed international standards for working hours, and annually mandated salary increases.
Sustaining these values comes at a price I am happy to pay.
You could call this fair trade. I just call it doing good business.

Additional policies and FAQs
Sizing changes a lot between countries and brands, so grab a measuring tape and see what AnnaKemp size you are.
I find that just two measurements usually help to find your size:
Chest for TOPS and Beltband for PANTS & SKIRTS.
For more precision you can also measure your Waist and Hips.
