Anne Marie Mondrup
With 20 years of experience working in the field of strategic and creative consulting and artist management within fashion and design, I’m most in my element when facilitating creative visions, digging the extraordinary out of the ordinary – and always aiming for the highest dream of them all.
From a very young age, I was driven by a passion to make a difference for people and the world surrounding us.
It’s my profound belief that if you can dream it, you can do it, and if you come from a place of love, you will find that there is a spiritual wisdom in everything. The challenges you face are keys for your personal transformation.
I almost never miss a sunrise and my favourite time of day is wandering the beach at 5 am in the morning in the company of my dog.
Head of Everything Sustainable
With two decades of experience within sustainability, communication and design, my work has always been rooted in nature’s principles and engaged with the cultural and creative forces of design & interior.
Having lived and breathed sustainable values since the day I was born, it was a natural step for me to fully dedicate myself to sustainability ever since 2012.
Today, I’m passionately engaged in subjects where environmentalism sits at the center, and it’s my mission to help visionary brands cultivate responsible leadership and integrate sustainability into their own value chains.
I’m in my element when I venture south with my family to eco-friendly must-sees, where I find inspiration and recharge, all while digging deep into culinary green delights or the latest report on sustainability.
Head of Advertising & Strategic Brand Partnerships
Forever known as the PR & Marketing Woman with a cultivated 28 years experience in the fashion industry, I have worked with some of the most exciting international luxury brands in the world – think Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Loewe and Valentino to name a few. With a solid background in communication, retail marketing and event planning, I always strive to establish bold 360- degree strategies and build long-lasting relationships with like-minded people.
As a mother of a 7-year-old daughter, I have become increasingly more conscious about the environment and each of our roles in taking immediate action. I try to apply my mantra of treating people the way you would want to be treated to our Mother Earth as well – care for it and it will take care of you in return.

Writer & Content Coordinator
Urbanite by birth and by heart, I’m a Stockholm-based writer originally from Transylvania. Like most millennial writers who came of age in the era of analog feelings, I began my professional career working in online media for publications like Schön! Magazine, METAL Magazine and Tomorrow’s Journal, among others.
Granddaughter of both a painter and a journalist, I sit comfortably somewhere in between. I am a crafter, a word-based visual person, an articulator and magic-weaver of stories.
I’m most productive after sundown, further stirring the Transylvanian myth. When I’m not brain deep in my keyboard, I’m probably busy elevating my sartorial demeanor or calculating my rising sign.
I always come armed with great playlists and metaphors to spare.

As a student, I have alternately buried my head deep in the curriculum of communications while still being wildly passionate about fashion, styling and sustainability.
My favourite time is spent reading books (like ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ and ‘Little Women’), taking long walks (I’m actually training for a long-distance hiking trip at the moment), cooking and hanging out with friends and family.
It’s my dream to work in fashion and support the industry to become more sustainable, while still holding on to the high-end quality of both designs and materials.
I’m thrilled to be part of this new movement with Acumé, and it’s my definite wish that we can turn a sustainable fashion future into the new norm.

Contribution Sustainability Consultant
I am a true sustainability nerd. At work as in my spare time, I love researching new sustainable products and materials, discuss sustainability-related topics and everything in between.
I’m also a true globetrotter, but after having lived abroad in three different countries during the past decade, I have finally settled down in Copenhagen.
I love exploring new countries and cultures, and will continue to do so on a less permanent level. Also, when I’m not working, I enjoy drinking red wine and Espresso Martinis with good friends, playing board games and cooking plant-based food.
I cook a lot of Italian food, debate gender equality with anyone who dares, love reading biographies and drinking gin & tonics, watch a lot of Marvel-movies, cry over talent shows and laugh at babies falling. I’m excellent at nothing and pretty average at everything.
All in all, I have a hard time dedicating myself to one thing, because there is too much to see, do and learn in this world.
However, sustainability is one subject that has stuck with me for about ten years now. Slowly and steadily, I’ve ventured further into the depths of it, which my contributions to Acumé Magazine will also reflect.
I look forward to sharing my stories with you!
