You might recognise Julia from our Staff Spotlight section, because in addition to being a knitwear designer, she is the Operations Manager here at Stephen & Penelope. Julia hails from the Frankfurt/Main region of Germany but has lived in Amsterdam for over 20 years.

Julia has always altered patterns to better flatter herself and her tastes and in 2019 took the leap into publishing her own designs. Colourwork yoke sweaters are a particular favourite for Julia, and she takes her inspiration from the fine art world (in a former life, Julia was an art gallery manager), and from nature.

Julia's summery brioche tank top Azimuth was published in issue 33 of Pom Pom magazine. You can visit Azimuth, and Julia's yoked sweater designs The Painter, Aero, and the newly published Matilda in the store throughout the month of July.
