Aska Yamashita, Art Director
Aska Yamashita has been artistic director of Atelier Montex since 2017. A partner of Annie Trussart for over twenty years, she continues the creative history of Montex by bringing in new influences, always driven by the highest standards of technical quality. Her knowledge of historical savoir-faire, her multi-faceted personality, and her daring sense of creativity constantly push the boundaries of the imagination and open up new directions in embroidery. Aska Yamashita dares to use unusual materials and unexpected combinations of techniques (printing, machine embroidery, appliqué, laser cutting, etc.), and is involved in a host of creative collaborations in fields as diverse as haute cuisine and jewellery.
