I recently stumbled upon Julia’s eye catching style on Instagram and have been hooked ever since! From LA to South of France her style posts are always original, effortlessly chic and fun! Julia is a Paris based fashion consultant with a flair for art and a killer style eye! After launching her own retail space in St Germain ‘The Space’ Julia has now set out on her new venture as a fashion consultant. She brings together her passion for retail, fashion and art to curate the most wonderful pop-up-stores! A recent project involved curating a luxury pop-up garden linking art, design and fashion at the Royal Monceau Hotel. Last week, I met up with Julia for a coffee (and a few quick style snaps) at the Palais Royal to hear more about her work, her style story and what she’s packing for her travels this Summer…
