What is The Modiste All About?

My name is Katherine Funk, and I am a 19 year old seamstress and designer from Airdrie, Alberta. I have been sewing since I was seven years old, when I would make dolls and doll clothing. When I was 15 I started making clothes for myself. I have always been fascinated with history and historical clothing, and all of my clothing is vintage or historically inspired.
In my last year of high school I created a special project for myself. It included researching and creating a full outfit from the 1700s. Since creating that project, I have been awarded the Mayors Night of the Arts Award, the Karin Simpson Memorial Scholarship for Creativity, the Amazing Women Amazing Promise Award, and have been a designer/tailor for MakeFashion 2017 and 2018. MakeFashion is a wearable technology fashion show that focuses on creating beautiful clothes that help others.
I also attended Olds College Fashion Institute, where I learnt how to pattern draft, proper techniques for sewing and finishing, and design.
My Etsy shop sells only unique, one of a kind pieces made entirely from scratch, starting at the design process, to the pattern drafting, all the way to the final touches.
