    Textile designer

    Meet Julie, a passionate textile designer who has elevated upcycling to a true art form.

    She breathes new life into vintage and artisanal textiles from diverse cultures by crafting unique pieces, all handmade in Brussels.

    Julie first pursued her studies in Applied Arts in France before settling in Brussels to further her expertise in fashion styling and textile design at La Cambre. It was here that she developed a fascination with the language and history of fabrics, as well as patterns and artisanal techniques.

    With a rich and varied background, this self-taught artist made her debut in Haute Couture and the world of entertainment, collaborating with legends like Jean-Paul Gaultier in Paris and dressing numerous artists for their stage performances.

    In 2011, Julie took destiny into her own hands by launching her own creative studio. Today, she oversees every step of the creative process, from conception to production and distribution.

    Her creations have made waves at numerous festivals and exhibitions, both in Belgium and abroad, from alternative events during Brussels Fashion Week to Bangkok and Geneva. In 2018, her works even found their place in the Brussels Lace and Fashion Museum.

    The designer is passionate about textiles and their history, as well as the origin of patterns across cultures and eras. Her approach is deeply committed, placing responsible consumption and the promotion of artisanal craftsmanship at the heart of her creation.

    Her boutique studio, nestled in the heart of the Marolles district, mirrors her persona: a place that's charming and inspiring, where creativity reigns supreme.
