A self-taught designer, Gina Antinozzi was part of a group of new designers that emerged in the 1980s. She designed jewellery and various accessories that were partnered with clothing creations, notably those by Jean-Claude Poitras and Edwin Birch. An active member of the board of directors of the Association des nouveaux créateurs de mode du Québec, she helped achieve recognition for accessories designers. After a number of remarkable presentations, notably a collection of spectacular masks at a 1989 fashion show at the Spectrum, she changed her focus and began creating decorative objects. In the 1990s, she moved to the Laurentians to develop a practice as a multidisciplinary artist.
