Hi! I’m Julia Di Lorenzo, the designer of the Julia Di Lorenzo Collection fashion brand! Born in a small folky-city, I’m a true friend of the environment and Mother Earth. I had a creative upbringing! My parents embraced all forms of art and craftsmanship. At age 21, I moved to Toronto to kick-start my career as a graphic designer and fine artist professional.
In 2005, I decided to go independent, investing in a 4-colour silkscreen machine and hand designing organic graphic t-shirts in my Toronto home. My t-shirts sparked some local conversation and interest. Following my passion for creating clothing, I attended indie fashion shows and particulary a University fashion event for cancer research fundraiser, called “fashion for a cure” at Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada. At 24, I sold my graphic shirts B2B in stores from Toronto to Montreal.
Years later, with some design experience I was given opportunity as an apparel graphic designer from other companies based in Canada.
In 2013, I was heartbroken when I heard about the Dhaka factory collapse, it was a wake up call to the world. I really disapprove of unethical behaviour and decided to start my own fashion label that’s considered future forward with compassion. Regarding our planet, 80% of clothing ends up landfill to decompose. Most of the clothing is non sustainable fabrics that releases toxic gases and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. 🙁
I want to help create a better future and society in this giant industry known as clothing. My fashion brands two BIG moral principles are focusing on sustainable fabrics and while supporting ethical work environments for all garment workers.
At the age of 33, I moved to Milano, Italy in 2015, to pursue a Digital Women’s Fashion Design Certificate. My life in Italy I experienced behind the scenes from Milan fashion week, and fabric/textile shows to learn more about trends, culture, style and avant-garde for the upcoming years.
With eco in my mind, I now collaborate with many of Europes high end innovative fabric suppliers to help me design the perfect yet FUNctional ethical collection.
