Julia Judy

Passion to grow with elegance and gratitude by building upon inspiration


Personal fashion designer and stylist, fashion and commercial model, freelance artist and recent university graduate, Julia Judy has an eye for aesthetics and an appetite to grow in all areas of her life. From a young age she would visit her local library and scout fashion magazines. Vogue, Glamour, Marie Claire, Grazia...the list goes on. 


She would flip through and admire the mastery of the couture, the makeup, and the composition of the photography. She gathered inspiration and started vision boards. She became her own stylist and makeup artist, blogging her outfits and beauty looks. 


She created a youtube channel of her hand sewn clothing that was based off of what she saw in the high end fashion world. The stitching may not have been perfect, and the fabric may have been recycled from old sweaters, but this sparked the beginning of infinite dreams that she could bring to life.



She signed with her first fashion modeling agency shortly after, at the age of 16. The market in Ohio was not the most glamorous. She fondly remembers her first real, “modeling” job with Dirt Devil. She was hired to act as a housewife in one of their commercials, vacuuming up various crumb paths. Throughout high school, she worked for various brands such as Rue21 and Monster and Rockstar Energy


In 2018, she attended The Ohio State University and had more opportunities to travel, allowing her to retire from the sultry vacuum ad business, and this gave her the chance to dive deeper into her dream of fashion.


Since then, she has represented Victoria's Secret and La Senza, both of their headquarters coincidentally placed in her University's city of Columbus, Ohio. She has traveled nonstop for photoshoots with renowned photographers such as Gavin O’Neill who has shot for Vogue, Marie Claire, and Cosmopolitan, Julia’s dreams had finally started to come to fruition. 


She recently graduated with degrees in Strategic Communication and International Business. In June of 2020, she launched Julia Judy Styling, a personalized fashion styling and shopping business. Her aim is to bring out people’s deepest intrinsic confidence and she strives to fuel her clients highest aesthetic potential, from made to fit clothing and outfit styling, to makeup and hair guidance. She plans to continue to expand her styling business as well as pursue her dream of fashion modeling.

Tell us something about you. Maybe your life, profession, habit, dream.


I am a very inquisitive person. I love following my curiosity and seeing where that leads me. I get this trait from my Mother, she is a very free spirit and has taught me to chase what I am passionate about. I try to learn new facts and perspectives daily. If you don’t know something, it can’t hurt to discover more about it, there is always more room to grow and understand.



Could you share how you expand your vision of art, fashion?


Fashion and the arts are both huge players in my personal and professional life. I have the blessing of working with styling and/or modeling every single day, I consider them both an art form. As an artist, you create beauty, and every artist can define beauty in their own way. The practice of using your creative eye is a skill that everyone can master. I adore gathering inspiration from others and adding a little piece of something that I admire to my own perspective and outlook.




In your daily routine, what resources do you like to learn new things about art, fashion?


I gather a lot of my fashion influence from reading. Particularly history and sacred geometry. Cleopatra has always been a key figure in my designs. I marvel at her impact in history and she was definitely a style icon in her era. The book, “Memoirs of Cleopatra” by Margaret George is remarkable. With sacred geometry, I love the patterns and the energy that they represent. I am a huge fan of symmetry and harmony in style and design.





Who do people impact most in your profession? What do you learn from them?


Definitely the artists! I work with many photographers in modeling. They are insanely talented and skilled in visualization. I love watching how they get lost in the process during a shoot. They see a wall or a random prop and know exactly how to fit it in with the look that we are going for. I learned to not have solid expectations for something all the way from the beginning to the end. Sometimes you can’t plan everything and you have to take a chance or try something that you never would have originally thought to do, and 9 times out of 10, it turns out surprisingly phenomenal.



To become famous, what kind of qualities do you think the person should have?


I believe philanthropy is an amazing quality to hold if your are famous. You can use your power to give back to a cause that you once struggled with and make it easier for others. I also think that having a deep sense of knowing yourself is key. Fame and attention can pressure you to live a life that you believe you should be. I see it in social media and I used to feel like I had to keep up an online persona that wasn’t authentic to myself, but if you know who you are, then you can enjoy the advantages of fame and not be a slave to it because you are grounded in yourself.



What is the most important thing for creating new work?


Creating new work is always an exciting process. I believe that the most important thing is to consistently improve on a trait each time that you have another opportunity to produce new content. Whether it’s communication with the team you’re working with or your poise and body movements in modeling. I’ve always tried to study my past works and observe what can be done better on the next project!
