Born in Paris, Justine is a trained costume maker and experienced seamstress with a passion for pattern cutting, tailoring and hand embroidery.
Justine worked for prestigious fashion houses in Paris, during the ‘ready to wear’ and haute couture fashion weeks, whilst also working for a streetwear brand and some emerging theatre companies. She came to England five years ago to be a junior embroiderer for a haute couture fashion house based in London and is now based in Somerset.
Justine is excited about how more and more people are inclined to make their own clothes, and how this feeds into a sustainable approach to fashion. She has the desire to teach everything she has learnt along the way. Justine Dumotier Khripounoff
