Júlia G Escribà
Julia G Escriba | Spring Summer 2021 | Digital
Júlia G Escribà is the kind of designer that we have been desperately needing for a long, long time. Julia is twenty years old meaning that she is in touch with the kinds of issues that are truly important in fashion today, from climate change to the trends that young people actually want to wear. She marks a move away from the oversaturation of luxury brands to a newer and interesting moment in fashion. Her designs are sleek and monochrome with a matrix esque edge lending an air of ease and sensuality to every look. She has used thermoregulating technology as developed by NASA to create ‘seasonless’ pieces, which is the kind of move as a designer that instantly makes her stand out, reflecting not only a genuine interest in sustainability but a pragmatic approach that is actually making a difference. These pieces can be worn for years to come, fighting against the cycle of fast fashion and overconsumption.
