Julien was a student of the Parsons School of Design and graduated in 2003. He then went to work for Narciso Rodriguez and Ralph Lauren where he gained his industry knowledge before launching his own label, Julien David, in Japan in 2008. His label started out making neo-classical printed scarves before growing to create his first capsule collection in the Ready-to-wear category for Spring/Summer 2011.
