“Working with Vessel Brooklyn was an amazing experience all around. Julia has such an attention to detail and is a great listener. My entire office had input on the gift so she had a lot of information to sift through and she created a well balanced, beautiful gift that brightened up my coworkers birthday. I could not be more grateful for the experience and I can't wait to use Vessel Brooklyn again! ”

From the smallest detail to the most complex gift, each creation is truly custom

Every Gift, Celebration and Moment are specific and full of meaning, curated with joy, personal understanding, and just a touch of whimsy. Julia’s curatorial process draws from her years of artistic and performance experiences, and her productions often connect to a particular film or piece of literature, a poem, a song or a visual arts piece that inspires a mood and theme for the final product. With her leather-meets-lace style and Bohemian edge, Julia’s productions are a sophisticated mix of classic and mod, inspired by the many artists in her life, and aimed at showcasing her clients’ personalities, styles, lives and loves.
