Interview with Julia Miriam Lang from the JML Journal
Julia is too cool
Tell us about yourself
Hey, I am JULIA Miriam Lang. Born in Africa, raised in Germany and now finally based in New York City which was always my dream. I am an Influencer, Blogger and Shop Manager. My hoobies are simply being creative in any sort of way. I love to dance and travel too.
What makes your style “different”?
I would like other people to give that answer for that. I can't really tell if my style is different. I do follow trends sometimes but I know exactly what works for me and what doesn't.
Describe your style.
Clean. High End. Sporty.
Who is your favorite designer or brand?
It really changes all the time. I love Dion Lee, Saint Laurent and Alaia right now.
Who is your biggest fashion inspiration?
It changes all the time too. Right now I admire OracleFox for her style which is always on point.
What piece in your closet could you not live without?
At the very moment, it's my suede Saint Laurent cross body bag which I wam wearing literally every single day since 4 months. lol
What is your go to lazy outfit, like what do you wear when you don’t even want to get ready?
haha barely anything. Nothing more comfortable than the comfort of not wearing much.
What is your go to outfit for when you don't know where you are going?
Black skinny pants, a black tight fitted top, a long white or black coat, leather booties and my Saint Laurent bag.
What would you say your fashion philosophy is? (what fashion means to you)
Be brave. Use it as an expression of who you are. Don't let anyone tell you what to wear.
What piece of clothing or accessory do you think every woman should have?
Black skinny pants
What is your number one fashion advice?
Be brave and only wear what you feel comfortable in. Comfortable not in terms of sitting lazy at home, comfortable in terms of a color or shape that you are comfortable with that it suits you.
What is your style advice for someone who is still developing their style?
Keep trying a lot of different looks, so your hunger will be satisfied and only that way you can truly discover what is a NO NO for you and what does really work for you.
What do you think is the most important thing in ones appearance for example; shoes, hair, clothes, handbag, attitude, etc.
The way you carry yourself and how happy you are with yourself. No bag or fancy dress can over play that inner glow. But nice clothes can surely be the icing on the cake.
Make my living with my website www.JMLjournal.com
If money wasn’t a problem what would you do for a job?
working on a different photo shoot everyday, having my own TV show
What could you not live without?
my family and best friends!!
anywhere close to the most beautiful and untouched beaches
Favorite song right now?
Wynter Gordon Stimela
changes all the time
Soooo many. Always be kind.
If you could change one thing in the world, what would you change?
Hunger. Iwould feed the world.
What is your opinion on the state of the earth and how we treat it?
Not too sure about that. We could always do better. It makes me sad to think about it. I think, we really have to change the way we're living NOW for the better lifes of our children-
There is a quote that says “every person is here for reason, everyone has a purpose”; what would you say is your purpose?
To inspire others to be brave, to believe in themselves and to follow there dreams with all their heart and believe.
Why are we here?
To love each other
What keeps you sane?
my family a 100% I would be nothing without them! Literally!
Pizza all day. Don't judge me.
All puppies! Haaa
What/who inspires you?
The people who love me.
If you would be granted an hour to speak to anyone that has ever lived, who would it be?
I 've never thought about that. Very interesting. Someone who has always inspired me till today (look wise) is Aaliyah. I always wonder how she would look like and be doing today. Maybe her or my grandma which would obviously be a LESS superficial conversation and something coming deep deep from the heart.
What is something someone will never know about you unless they ask you?
Haa, it can't say that here. Otherwise it wouldn't be something I would never say until someone ask me the exact thing.
If you could go back and give your 13 year old self a piece of advice what would it be?
Open your eyes to how beautiful you are. Believe in the bigger picture and what life has to offer you. But most of again, be confident and happy.
