Julie Verhoeven has worked in numerous ways across fashion and design, from illustration to creative direction and design consultancy. She studied fashion at Medway College (now Kent Institute), graduating in 1987, and began her career as John Galliano's first design assistant. Verhoeven continued this role at Martine Sitbon, where she stayed for seven years as design consultant.
Verhoeven's love of drawing is always at the heart of any commercial work she undertakes. In addition to creative direction for pop promos, record sleeve design and set design for advertising campaigns, she contributes to publications including Dazed and Confused, Self Service, The Face and The Independent.
