Sydney born Justine Miller, founder and director of Queen Justine Vintage, has had a passion for dress-ups, fabrics and fashion from a very early age. And no wonder! With both her Mother and Grandmother talented seamstresses and her Father a fashion photographer, it was always going to be an integral part of her destiny.
Justine’s creative talents are many and varied. A day in the life of Justine could find her doing anything from photographing models for the website in her Redfern photo studio, art directing and styling fashion shoots or sourcing eclectic vintage pieces. Her passion and trained eye for quality vintage clothing and homewares alike has been honed and refined over her many years in the industry.
The QJV journey initially began trading at weekend markets and evolving into the sophisticated brand we know today that can be often seen at fashion events, music and street festivals. Justine has taken QJV on the road from Byron Bay’s Splendour in the Grass Festival to California’s Coachella Music Festival and has developed a dedicated following, all enamoured by that unique, inimitable QJV style.
The QJV aesthetic is best described as encompassing a journey from street to old school to classic and back again. In addition, as a mark of honour and respect to planet Earth, Justine fervently believes that recycling and breathing new life into pieces from the past is an intrinsic philosophy and fundamental essence of her brand.
Through creative collaborations, social media and the website, Justine has an objective to push the boundaries and strengthen her focus on a global audience.
Her unique combination of passion and ambition coupled with her gift as a true creative visionary, guarantees that Queen Justine Vintage will be a success and an inspiration for many years to come.
