Justine Woods is a garment artist, designer, educator and researcher based in Tkaronto (Toronto, ON). She holds a Master of Design from OCAD University and a Bachelor of Design in Fashion Design from X University. Currently, Justine is a Doctoral Candidate in the Media and Design Innovation Ph.D. program at X University.

Justine’s research and design practice centers fashion and garment-making as a practice-based method of inquiry towards re-stitching alternative worlds that prioritize, celebrate and mobilize Indigenous resurgence. Her work prioritizes all of the relationships that make up her identity as an Aabitaawikwe; an identity she has inherited from her family and her Aabitaawizininiwag Ancestors. Born and raised in Tiny, Ontario, Justine is a member of what is presently known as the Georgian Bay Métis Community.
