Take the name – ‘Nodaleto’ – shake it all about, and it reads ‘Toledano’ – the name of Julia’s father, French fashion’s famous Sidney Toledano, former Chairman and CEO of Christian Dior Couture and now Chairman and CEO of LVMH Fashion Group.https://www.instagram.com/p/BvMh3m7nH8G/?utm_source=ig_embed
Julia Toledano, 25, has her own ideas, which she calls “a patchwork of contradictory influences” that she has developed as “American-Mediterranean minimalism”.
