Jennifer has been dressing people for over 30 years. Although the majority of her career has focused in costume design for theatre, opera and dance, Jennifer has helped people dress for special events and worked as a personal stylist as well.

As a costume designer, Jennifer’s job is to make performers look beautiful, feel great and be comfortable no matter what kind of physical feats they perform on stage. Since opening her vintage and secondhand clothing shop Pick a Posie a few years ago, Jennifer has discovered that she loves helping people discover their own sense of style and makes comfort and fit a priority in her client’s purchases. After several requests, Jennifer is now offering online workshops and personal clothing consultation, fitting and styling services.

Jennifer Triemstra-Johnston holds a BFA in Theatre Production and Design from York University and an MA Fashion from Ryerson University. Since 1995, Jennifer has worked across Ontario as a costume designer, creating costumes for over 175 theatre, dance and opera productions.
In 2013 Jennifer was granted her MA in Fashion from the Ryerson University School of Fashion. Her published MRP was titled Challenging the Fast Fashion Product: A Method for Use-Value Apparel Design.

For the past twenty years, as part-time faculty, Jennifer has taught costume and apparel design and construction classes for various universities including the Ryerson School of Fashion, the Ryerson Theatre School, and York University Theatre and Dance Departments. Her classes have included: costume design, fashion design, pattern making, draping, construction, millinery, corsetry, accessories, specialty building, painting and dyeing.

Currently Jennifer owns and manages two different social enterprises in Blyth Ontario. Pick a Posie Costume Shop is a second-hand costume, vintage and eclectic fashion shop that offers one of a kind pieces as well as custom design services. The Fashion Arts & Creative Textiles Studio (FACTS) is a gallery and creative space that exhibits local textile and fibre artists and offers classes and workshops at both the community and professional level in fibre arts.
