The soon-to-be-released What Would Julia Do is a collection of images taken by photographer Rebecca Thomas, assembled in the form of a documentary photographic essay focusing on her friend and noteable figure, Princess Julia.
This is not the first time Princess Julia, crowned by the club kids for her nightlife endevaours, has had her striking personality and appearance captured. She has been a name of recognition since her early 1980s participation of the Blitz Kids club scene and hanging around with people from Marc Almond to Boy George. Princess Julia, as the creator of this photographic journal puts it, 'glides through the worlds of fashion, music, art and ‘general frippery’. She has been a DJ, model, muse, musician, writer and curator. She is a totem of, tribute to and inspiration for London’s underground artistic endeavours.'
Consequently, the pages of Thomas' What Would Julia Do are filled with Princess Julia's antics and adventures, featuring members of London's creative scene such as Pam Hogg, Judy Blame and Dinos Chapman. A resulting selection of glossy yet candid, amusing and thoroughly intriguing images available this May!
In the meantime meander through some of our fashion Collections panel discussions such as Roksanda Illincic and Rick Owens A/W 14 - with Princess Julia in the chair (and cameo's from her cover star dog Barney) there's never a dull opinion.
