She completed her apprenticeship as a tailor at Couture Villiger in Zurich and, after intense years of experience at Löw in Zurich, at first opened a studio in Zurich’s Niederdorf, afterwards at Kreuzplatz, before in 1984 establishing the business at today’s location at Dufourstrasse 167 in Seefeld, Zurich. From the beginning Rosmarie Amacher turned her attention to the training of dressmakers. In 1989 she opened the separate cloth business unit named Le Coupon, which ganied more and more importance.

Rosmarie Amacher holds many important positions within the Swiss textile world. She is a board member of the training commission for dressmakers, over and again she organizes textile exhibitions in several museums and she is one of the most prominent collectors of international haute couture manufactured of Swiss fabrics.
