A graduate of UQAM and Concordia in fashion and design, Anne-Marie Laflamme has been in business for over twelve years with her best friend, Catherine Métivier, with whom she founded atelier b. Their lines for women, men and children are made locally in Montreal from natural fibers. To make their manufacturing production zero waste, they have launched a line of objects for the home made using the circular economy.
The brand is mainly sold online as well as at their Mile End boutique workshop. In addition to design, she is responsible for communications and sales. Interested in sustainable clothing, design and engaged entrepreneurship, she enjoys discussing and writing on these subjects. Also a lecturer at the two Universities where she studied, she is involved in the transfer of know-how within workshop b, whether through courses or by participating in conferences and panels.
