Hi, I’m Janine.

I am a self-taught seamstress and fashion designer. I started sewing when I was
16 years old, I always had a passion for fashion and often imagined my own designs when
window-shopping. My grandma played an important role showing me sewing techniques when I
was young. I remember using my T-shirt as a block pattern and I seam-ripped many clothes to
use as basic patterns ( I still do that).
I began sewing for friends in my twenties, since 2005 I started my own Clothing line: “enina-J by
Janine” (my name spelled backwards) and started sewing for customers. Since then I haven’t
looked back. I love helping women take control of their fashion style by wearing my creations.
Aside from my fabric addiction I love working with prints and bright colors, and I especially enjoy
to mix and match colors (colorblock) and prints (printblock).
The reason I started this website is to make it possible for you wear my design. I offer
customized order / made to order purchases.
How to order
Easy: just send me a message! Together we’ll design your choice of color and fabric print. Take
note that some fabric prints are out of stock, but can be replaced with another nice print.
I’m looking forward to seeing you wear my designs. Don’t forget to share your photos with me!

I was born, raised and still live in Curacao, a beautiful Island in the South Western Caribbean,
just 40 miles from the Venezuelan Coast and located next to her sister islands Aruba and
Bonaire, the ABC Islands. The Country of Curacao is an autonomous country within The Royal
Dutch Kingdom and that is why we are often called The Dutch Caribbean. We speak 4
languages; our native language is Papiamento and we are taught Dutch, English and Spanish in
elementary school, so now you know why I have an accent. With our turquoise colored
beaches, the best diving spots, 160,000 Cultural diverse friendly inhabitants, colorful paintings
and buildings, year-round sun, I am proud to call my island a tropical paradise.

My favorite Bible Verse:

‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for
those who love Him’ 1 Corinthians 2:9.
