About Us



Hello and Welcome to Justine Studio, we are a small and curated boutique for women, located in the heart of the Historical Byward Market in Canada's Capital Ottawa.

My name is Christine Shaikin.

I am a high profile stylist entrepreneur mother and proud rescue dog lover. I strive to see my customers develop confidence, strength, style and glamour. Let my experience and expertise give you the confidence to express your unique sense of who you are! 

Justine studio was created in 1981. In my earlier years I was chosen to design and style the RCMP women's uniforms, while dressing and styling many high profile women in the corporate, political, and arts world. Dressing so many powerful, dignified and elegant women has allowed me to curate my store with a deeper sense of gratitude and care for what I offer. 

I strive to offer the very best of Canadian and international designers. My gift to you is that you see your beautiful confident self in the art and language of fashion.  

At Justine Studio, we understand that your clothing should fit your body, if alterations are needed we measure accordingly and provide that service. These pieces are meant to last you a lifetime and we treat them with the utmost respect from the moment they arrive in our hands to the moment we hand you your garment or shopping bag.

 I do hope we do justice to these beautiful pieces of art in this new medium. We look forward to seeing you either in-store or to receiving your online order for pick-up! 


 - With Love, Christine and Emma
