Justine Volkaert

 Portrait_Justine_2Justine completed her Masters in Communication Science at Ghent University, specialising in Management and did an internship in the marketing department of CHANEL in Brussels.

She was a Trade Marketing Manager and responsible for planning all the events, stage shows and windows for CHANEL in Benelux. For example, Justine was arranging all the windows of CHANEL that you would see in the perfume stores. She was also partly responsible for the CRM inside CHANEL, all the mailings go through her hands. This was  a fantastic opportunity for Justine. At the same time as her internship and studying at MODESIGN Academy, Justine writes a blog for every two weeks about fashion and beauty. She is now Sales Coordinator at the online platform Vente Exclusive.

Justine joined MODESIGN to gain a broader knowledge of the fashion industry. Her approach to the Jewel project has been very thorough and well organised. Antheia – Goddess of gardens, blossoms and the budding earth – is the inspiration behind Justine’s Jewel project. She has designed a leaf ring, a very simple but beautiful piece of jewellery, inspired by the cycle of life and all things natural – Even if something looks like the end of an era, the cycle of life will go on – very apt for this moment in time.

Justine reads a lot of magazines from ElleVogue, and Net-a-Porter to National Geographic – because besides fashion, she is very interested in nature and animals.
