Juli Grbac is an Australian darling of the fashion industry. Launching her own label in 2002, Juli’s designs have been on the Australian Fashion Week Runway, worn by celebrities and featured in editorials in Marie Claire, Vogue and Madison to name a few. In 2017 she launched a capsule collection called Grace on Mercer, channeling the modern woman on the go, who appreciate classic pieces with the glamour that is synonymous with Juli’s effortless style.
A career highlight, Juli was the first winner of Project Runway Australia in 2008, bringing her fabulous personality and feminine, detailed designs to the small screen. Juli then went on to win the pitch to design the uniforms for Virgin Australia and their 7,000 crew. Nine years on, Juli still works with Virgin to enhance their uniforms annually from cabin crew, to pilots, to baggage handlers and even the Virgin pets.
Over the last decade her understanding of quality design, the psychology of uniforms, the perfect fit across various body shapes and understanding how uniforms effect the moral of teams has made Juli an expert in uniform design. She has had the pleasure of working with a range of brands to enhance their corporate image, such as Suncorp, Great Southern Rail and Service NSW. Uniquely Juli works on design from conception through to liaising with manufacturers to styling staff in the finished product.
