We searched the hills of Los Angeles and Orange County to find four killer muses for our Mind Bali Soul collection, who truly embody San Lorenzo Bikinis and the collection. To kick off our Muse Series, we shot the beautiful and ever so talented Julia Friedman in four looks worthy of the pages of Sports Illustrated. Julia has been with the collection since Miami Swim Week 2015, where she first debuted her flawless runway skills in our fashion show. Get to know our muse more, as she went in-depth about modeling, bikinis and her plans for the future.

An LA native, this 18 year old is a self proclaimed foodie, with a love for all things sushi and pizza.
Let’s start with a classic, what got you into the modeling/ blogging industry?
I was scouted when I was younger by a family friend and slowly started looking into agencies and working for small clothing companies beginning at age 12. Blogging I recently started after graduating highschool because I wanted to do something creative during the downtime I have.
