What is a modine

A modinetje traditionally refers to a young, female seamstress or milliner, often working in a fashion studio or sewing studio. This term was once widely used, especially in the context of the fashion industry and tailoring, and denoted an apprentice or assistant in the fashion world. The work of a fashionista was often focused on assisting with the making and adjustment of clothing, learning sewing techniques and gaining experience in the fashion trade.

In a broader, more figurative sense, the term can also be used to describe a young woman who is interested in fashion or who dresses according to the latest fashion trends.

However, the concept of the fashion has evolved over time, and in the contemporary context it is rarely used or has taken on a different meaning, partly due to changes in the fashion industry and the emergence of modern education and professions in the fashion and tailoring.
