Jamie Von Stratton taught herself how to sew after participating in musical theater in her teenage years. Her label, J. Von Stratton specializes in classic womenswear and bridal. She swims strongly in the costume and drag worlds, having created works for corporations and commercials, and Rupaul's Drag Race alumni.
Her creative nature, love of fashion, thrift store finds, and vintage construction led to to start her own label in 2003. She started with two shops in Seattle, where she remade pieces she found in thrifts stores, or whipped up one of a kind creations. When she discovered burlesque, this broadened her creative circle, and she began fashioning costumes. It's now been over 15 years and her love of all things stage, fashion, and vintage has allowed her to pour these inspirations into quaint seasonal collections.
