Amanda Tremmel is a Minneapolis-based Designer originally from Sundance, Utah. She has her Master of Fine Arts in Art History & Museum Studies from Marist College and the Istituto Lorenzo de’Medici in Florence, Italy and has held various museum and teaching positions prior to her career in design. In addition to being a student in the Minneapolis College Apparel Technologies Program, Amanda is an Associate Technical Designer for Target Corp where she supports Performance Apparel. Outside of her role at Target, Amanda enjoys designing and curating elevated ready-to-wear collections which she plans to showcase when she launches her design label in Fall 2023.
The Palazzo Collection is inspired by Renaissance innovation and discovery in art, architecture, and astronomy under the reign of the Medici family in 16th century Florence. Inspired by my time living and studying in Florence, the designs are my own personal expression of juxtaposing classic silhouettes with modern revival by uncommonly pairing neoprene, brocade, and silk fabrics to create trendy garments with a sense of timelessness.
