Julie Danforth


Julie Danforth grew up in Gig Harbor Washington. In November 2011, Julie started her fashion design career with Marta Kappl at House of Fashion in Seattle. Taking inspiration from the famous designers of the 60’s and the iconic celebrities who wore them, Julie captures that moment and transforms those fashions for today’s sophisticated tastes. Classic design lines, glamorous and beautiful combined with a subtle sexiness and sophistication.

Her passion for creating the perfect look, fit, and customer experience for each of her clients can be seen in all of her collections for Julie Danforth Design.Julie has continued to hold on to her dream and today designs with even more energy and passion than she did as a child.

Yahwea Meroe

Honestly, I just consider myself a local artist trying to make it in the fashion industry. In 2011, I was attending the Art Institute of Seattle and was a quarter away from completing my associates in Fine Arts but didn’t graduate due to lack of funds. I was definitely discouraged but thankfully that didn’t stop me from pursuing my dream as a fashion designer and creating my line Vivid Haiku Meroe. Art and fashion is my language of love. I live and breathe it. It’s how I connect with the world around me. Maybe it’s because I’m a Libra, who knows? But one thing I do know, it’s something I will continue to do for the rest of my life.
