I’m Julie, I’m 29 years old, and I work as a Senior Designer for the Catwalk studio. I absolutely love illustration so I was naturally drawn to a foundation course in visual communication at Olivier de Serres, which I followed up with a degree in art history. I joined Swarovski in 2007. As part of the Daniel Swarovski studio, I began by illustrating the evening bag collections. I have always been fascinated by heritage and artisan values, so I immediately loved the world of couture.
Every season we create exceptional pieces for the Catwalk studio that set the tone for all our collections. Using Nathalie Colin’s creative vision, I design and draw around fifteen luxurious couture designs. From the original idea to the final execution, I follow them along their entire technical development from the embroidery, chatonnage, through to the threading, and leather inlaying or molding; rare and complex areas of expertise that require real master craftsmanship. I coordinate our talented craftspeople who bring our creations to life.
My favorite piece for this season?
A beautiful jumpsuit with crystal embroidery, which we made another copy of especially for Nathalie Colin.
