Angélique was born and raised in Edmonton, Canada. After pursuing broad studies at the University of Alberta, she moved to New York City to study Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Upon graduation, she began the creation of her inaugural line in the Fall of 2011.

The brand is inspired by human experiences and the idea that clothing can be a vehicle used to express one’s emotions, thoughts and ideals. What we wear everyday is an expression of our unique personalities and contributes to the stories of our lives. We believe everyone has a unique story to tell and our collections seek to provide pieces that help tell those stories. Striving to create original pieces with a focus on quality materials and comfortable fit, we work closely with a few select local manufacturers to help ensure the highest attention to detail.

The ANGÉLIQUE CHMIELEWSKI studio is currently based in New York City.
