Aska Yamashita, Art Director
Born in 1973, Aska Yamashita started her art career by training as an illustrator. As part of her studies, she completed an internship at Atelier Montex in 1989, where she trained in embroidery techniques. This is where she met Annie Trussart, Montex Art Director at the time – a turning point in the Maison's history. Together, they set Atelier Montex on a path of tremendous growth.
Aska Yamashita nurtures an unwavering passion for embroidery and its many techniques, which she loves to explore and push to new heights as a way of furthering this unique expertise and merging it with eclectic creativity.
After Annie Trussart founded Studio MTX with a focus on interior design in 2013, Aska Yamashita launched decorative embroidery projects in 2019, in addition to her collaboration with the fashion studios. These projects offered a springboard for Atelier Montex to interact with a great diversity of areas, ranging from gourmet cuisine to fine jewellery.
