At the young age of 18, stylist and creative director Julia von Boehm moved from her small town in Germany to Paris and landed one of the most coveted and life-changing jobs: assistant to then-Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld. Learning from one of the fashion industry’s most iconic figures has informed and shaped not only von Boehm’s career, but also her other job as mama to two daughters. Roitfeld became her mentor and is now the godmother to her youngest child. Since moving to New York, von Boehm has become one of the most in-demand editorial stylists, traveling around the world on photo shoots, so her time at home in Chelsea with her girls is precious. The tight-knit trio recently moved into a bright, warm apartment that feels like a little slice of Paris. The most magical room in the house is the girls’ dreamy playroom, complete with mini matching French grain sack-covered armchairs and an artist’s easel. Despite the hectic work schedule and countless overnight flights to make it back in time to see the girls before school, von Boehm admits that at the end of the day, her children have “put everything into perspective. They are the most important purpose in my life, and everything I do is for them!”
