Julie Maeseele Preview Party

  • Winslet & Rhys 4000 3rd Avenue South Birmingham, AL, 35222 United States (map)

Fashion is so mass-produced now, I hope there will come a new focus on the craft.
— Raf Simons

Join us to celebrate the debut collection by Julie Maeseele. Her spring/summer line is full of character, articulated details and made only of up-cycled or dead-stock fabrics. Julie has made each piece by hand, and we promise they will be your new favorites! 

The Spring Collection will be available at Winslet & Rhys until the limited editions are purchased. Julie will also have pieces available online. 

About the designer:
Julie Maeseele is a Belgian designer based in Birmingham.
The mom of two was born and raised in Belgium. In the summer of 2014, she relocated with her family to the US. After she graduated as a textile designer, she made modern rugs and shoes, among other things. She worked with muslim women for a non-profit organization, where they exchanged cultural textile heritage. Also trained as seamstress, she has made the sewing skill her own. After finding peace in her new location, she finally does what she loves the most: making clothes using up-cycled fabrics and incorporating hand embroidery. She is inspired by her roots, her family in Nicaragua and most of all her new hometown Birmingham.
