“No matter how coldly people look at me, I’m determined to wear what I really like because clothes are a means of expressing myself,” Yulia said. Her fashion style — freely combining high-end and secondhand clothes, as well as pairing loud patterns or vivid colors with other equally bold items — is reputed to be a “typical fashion style for Tokyo.”


Yulia first came under the spotlight in 2008 when she released her debut CD as a disc jockey. She gained a reputation for her sophisticated dress sense and became known overseas, too, through such platforms as the photo-sharing social media tool Instagram.
