A vision passing through three decades of London nightlife, i-D’s Music Editor Princess Julia was given her royal title by a club owner who couldn’t remember names but never forgot her face. Forever immortalised as a video star in Visage’s Fade to Grey, her Zelig-esque presence has been essential to every youth culture movement from punk to the new romance of the Blitz, the wild abandon of 80s camp glitter and the 00s’ messy lurch eastward. A celebrated DJ, an unconventional role-model and performer who has worked with everyone from Kylie Minogue to the drag artistes of Shoreditch, Julia’s ability to be at the molten-hot centre of everything in London still outflanks us all.
