I always saw fashion as an Art, as a form of beauty and expression.
The colors, textures, shapes, the ideas
His connection to every human being:
a manifestation of who we are.

Julia Martínez

I describe myself as a motivated and creative person; active and able to assume responsibilities.
I am a graduated Fashion Designer, specialized in Sustainable and Upcycling Design. I am enthusiastic about innovation and eager to develop new concepts and ideas.
I am well disposed to team work and to share my ideas and knowledge with others, looking forward to new experiences and opportunities.
I do not identify myself with a specific style, I like to experiment with different fabrics, colors and mixtures.
I am very adaptable to projects of diverse theme.
My imaginary is made up of memories and experiences of everything I love: nature, art, travels, photography, films, music, books, the oneiric world. This whole universe is usually my inspiration.
I consider myself an open-minded person, interested in different cultures and people. My wish of new experiences has brought me to Berlin, a cosmopolitan city full of style!
