Julia Mei: Story & Interview

There’s really nothing too special about me I’d like to think. I’m very much like any other girl, fascinated with shiny things that smell nice. But I also enjoy video gaming, which is quite peculiar in some ways? So you could say I’m a mix between a tomboy and a girly girl. I have my moments. Honestly, though, it’s not hard to guess that I love food (haha). The way to Julia’s heart is most definitely through her stomach 🙂

What does fashion actually mean to you? What inspires your passion and what excites & motivates you about modeling? Fashion means something different for everyone. To me its a way to express myself. I like to keep things simple, but emphasize my personality through one bold item in my outfit.

What do you think, Is it important to attended fashion modeling courses? Do they really help newbies to get a foothold in the Fashion Industry? Not at all. Although the courses may help, I don’t believe it’s necessary at all. I never took any courses. It really depends on how much work you put into things. It’s a good investment, but it won’t guarantee you success.

How you communicate with other netizens, specially your subscribers? Are you patient? polite? friendly? How often you reply to them? I try to be polite and friendly most of the time. but I get so many message in a day that it’s just physically impossible for me to reply to all of them. And like many other models, we get creepy messages, or people who send us bad pics too.. Which we don’t appreciate.

Has modeling changed other aspects of your life? What does your career do for you? It made me much more confident in front of any type of camera and in front of people in general. Believe it or not, all the interviews I had to do in front of a camera has really help me in terms of public speaking.

Is there anything you dislike about modeling? I have to give up a lot of my personal life in order to model. Also, being in the eye of the public like that, the people who are closest to you tend to not like it as much.

And what are some things you dislike or want to change about the fashion industry? There’s a lot of bad connotations with it and people tend to think models don’t have half a brain. It is however very untrue. I know plenty of models who are intelligent human beings.

How you prepare yourself for a modeling shoot? I look in the mirror, and smile.

What has been your best fashion look? What was your biggest fashion mistake? My best fashion look? I don’t quite know. But I know for a fact that my biggest fashion mistake was chopping all my hair off a few years ago. I’m so glad it all grew back ! <3

What are your favorite types of outfits to model in? What are your least favorites? I love streetwear personally, because it’s so ordinary, and natural. I really don’t enjoy too outrageous outfits.

Any ultimate goal to fulfill as a model ? How do you see yourself progress in this field? I just work hard and see where it takes me. It’s great that I have so many fans supporting me. I really appreciate it.

What kind of shoots would you like to work on in the future? I would definitely want to do more streetwear and artistic shoots.

Tell us something about your city, your favorite hang out spots there? I live in Toronto. It’s just a great City lol.

What is your perfect day, morning through to night? Wake up refreshed, and notice that even though you’re wide awake, it’s only 7 AM. Get all my errands done, and be productive! Productivity is important in my life. Go to sleep after a hot bubble bath, all warm and cuddled up in my blankets and comfy pillows. 🙂

What do you like to do for fun & entertainment? I play video games.

What’s your fashion mantra? Please describe your style? What’s your beauty regime? My style is based on my mood and personality. I tend to stay simple though. Nothing too bold or too crazy.

Do you eat nutritiously? Tell us about the diet you follow on a regular basis? Is there any food which you avoid eating? I don’t buy anything I don’t want myself eating. This includes any soda pop or chips. I tend to cook a lot of my own meals, so I know what’s in it. Other than that, I don’t really look too heavily on what I eat. I just eat whatever I’m craving because I figure if I’m craving for it, my body must need it.

How often do you exercise or go to the gym? How much time do you spend there? I don’t have a set schedule. I go when I feel like an extra boost in metabolism. I have a pretty healthy diet, not to mention a fast metabolism so I can often get away with not going.

Excluding all complicated beauty & fitness mantra, what do you think to be the easiest way to look pretty and glamorous? Don’t frown so much in your everyday life. Your mother wasn’t joking when she said if you keep making ugly faces like that, your face will stay that way.

What other modeling projects have you done? All modeling projects can be found in the “About” page on my fan page on Facebook. 🙂

What are your experiences in the fashion industry? What is fun and rewarding about modeling? Do you have any advice for other aspiring models? Confidence is key.

What fashion magazines & weblogs you like browsing? I don’t read any fashion magazines or fashion websites.

Tell me about your favorites. My role model is Miranda Kerr. She’s absolutely beautiful and has really made a brand of herself.

How you access the Internet? What device do you use: Is it a tablet, smartphone or laptop?What according to you is a more comfortable, quick, and easy device for accessing the Internet? I use a tablet, smartphone, and desktop computer. Yes, it’s true. I don’t own a laptop. I’m usually on my smartphone though.

Is there anything you like to add? If you love it, go for it.

Your ultimate message for netizens? I love you all 🙂
