My name is Justyna. I am a fashion designer and seamstress. As a child growing up in rural Poland I often secretly entered my Mom’s closet. There I would try on her dresses, cut them up into little Justyna sized pieces and wear them myself. Yes, a natural born fashion designer, clothing recycler, and custom seamstress.
I graduated from a Polish Technical Clothing College (specializing in women’s clothing), and later completed a two year Fashion Design and Theatre Costume course. While studying I was sewing custom clothing for local ladies. I then sewed for a clothing designer in the U.K. for two years while learning English. Seeking a warmer, sunnier environment, I moved to the magical little island of Mallorca, Spain. My design and seamstress work evolved there into designing and selling my own dress collections and hand bags.
Mallorca is a Mediterranean epicenter for super-yachts, so my path naturally flowed into working with a professional custom canvas worker. We worked with an assortment of materials producing custom made covers and cushions.
I have my own workshop here in Collingwood and am happy to do alterations, dress making, women’s designer fashion, clothing repair, and custom sewing. Also serving Wasaga Beach, The Blue Mountains, Thornbury and Meaford.
