Anna  Burns


I am a spatial designer and art director who has been running a multi-disciplined design studio in Hackney for the past fifteen years. I have created window and installation work for brands such as Hermes, Coach, Christian Louboutin and Tiffany, amongst others.

My photographic set design includes collaborations with world renowned photographers including Michael Baumgarten, Miles Aldridge, Ellen Von Unwerth, Tom Craig and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Working on both editorial and advertising projects, my work has appeared in the pages of Love Magazine, British, Casa, Italian, Japanese and Chinese Vogues as well as creating sets for commercial brands such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Isabel Marant, Hermes, H&M, Balenciaga and Benetton.

Alongside my commercial work, I have created large scale art installations and sculptures. In 2015 I launched my limited-edition product line  Anna Burns Object. I have been a visiting tutor for ten years and recently became Co-Stage One Leader for BA Fashion Communication and Promotion.
