We sat down with Julianna, our magnificent Marketing and Communications Manager, to learn a little bit about her background, her day-to-day life at ZipFit, and her ideal Sunday.
How long have you worked at ZipFit Denim?
A little over 2 years.
What is your perfect fit?
I love the J Brand High-Rise Natasha!
Where did you go to school?
I attended DePaul University in Chicago, majoring in Public Relations and Advertising and minoring in Italian!
Describe your perfect Sunday!
My perfect Sunday is getting out of the city and heading home to the suburbs to see my crazy Italian family. We’ll cook together, relax, and just hang out all day. Sunday family dinner has always been a tradition that I love.
Who are your style icons?
Gosh, I have so many! My love for fashion started with my Nonna and my mom. They were my first fashion inspirations! I have always loved the classic looks of Coco Chanel but mixed with the edginess of someone like Madonna. Recently, I’ve become a huge fan of many style influencers, especially Olivia Culpo. My style is always evolving! It really depends on my mood and what I am dressing for!
What is your favorite denim trend right now?
I am loving the super high-waisted yet unstructured denim trend happening right now. I am also really into the vintage vibe, especially for the warmer months.
What is your Instagram handle?
My Instagram is @juju.bee.like and I primarily post my favorite styles and outfits!
Do you have any hidden talents? What are they?
I’m secretly really good at figure skating!
What is the most embarrassing trend you’ve ever participated in?
Probably Ed Hardy everything from the sneakers to the perfume and Juicy Couture velour handbags with lots of bling!
Cubs or Sox? Or someone else altogether?
What do you do in an average day at ZipFit?
Loaded question! On an average day, I am in and out of fittings, either here in our showroom or in cities like NYC and LA. I am always checking my email so that I can tend to clients’ customer service needs with the best customer service possible. I also spend lots of time prospecting new business through both personal and corporate client acquisition and client gifting. Lastly, I help with our social media and marketing– I am constantly trying to find new and innovative ways to share the ZipFit story and promote our brand!
How did you end up at ZipFit?
I left the crazy public relations agency life to find my way back the world of fashion. After about 6 months of personal styling, Liz found me! We met for coffee and I immediately fell in love with the company culture and our amazing team!
What’s your favorite ZipFit memory?
I have SO many! One would have to be having the opportunity to fit Deion Sanders at our showroom in Chicago– he’s one of our favorite clients! Another awesome milestone for us occurred when we all packed up our old showroom and moved into our new, beautiful space. It was a bittersweet time but also super exciting that we outgrew our old space and were ready for something new. 🙂
