ABOUT YOUR TEACHER
JULIA SOFTLEY | CREATIVE DIRECTOR MLM LABEL, ARTIST
Julia's illustrative foundation was developed at a young age, surrounded by craft, textiles, and music, all taught and influenced by her parents.
Julia studied the arts and completed her BVA/FA before transitioning to a comprehensive background in the apparel business and design as a brand manager. This change in her career path ultimately led to the launch of her first label in 2009, marking the beginning of a successful 14-year career in the fashion world. MLM Label, her brand, has been sold worldwide and has been worn by celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Emmanuel Alt, Tash Sefton, and dozens of global influencers.
Julia has recently revisited her trade of art and illustration. Influenced by nature, colour, and tones, Julia aims to captivate the eye through the creation of her work, favouring tactile materials such as watercolour, Conte, and Gouache.
She experiments with unique techniques to create aesthetically pleasing signatures. Her love for textiles, art, and digital media combines her comprehensive skillset in apparel and design. We are very lucky to have Julia with us at Studio Subi!
