Princess Julia was born in Hackney and gained a name in the 1980s as one of the original Blitz Kids. She was a core member of the elitist group who frequented Steve Strange and Rusty Egan's Blitz Club and contributed to the proliferation of flamboyant, glamorous and individual styles in club culture. Her DJing career initially began working at The Wag, Queer Nation and Kinky Gerlinky and more recently for the likes of Gareth Pugh, Tate Modern and Vivienne Westwood.
Currently Princess Julia is the editor-at-large at GQ Style. She also writes actively about music in her role as the music editor at i-D magazine and regularly contributes to Ponystep, QX and other online and print publications.
