Texas native JULIE HENDERSON moved to New York at age 16 and was immediately signed to New York Model Management. Henderson quickly began gracing the pages of ELLE, Glamour, Self, Teen Vogue and ELLE Girl. Having also appeared in many international magazines, including French Marie Claire, D Magazine, Self Service and Arena Homme, Henderson began shooting with some of the worlds most influential photographers including Mario Sorrenti and David Simms.
In 2007, Julie landed a coveted spot in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and has continued to grace the pages each year, now standing at seven consecutive years. Landing campaigns for the likes of Benetton, L’oreal, Hugo Boss, Gap, Levi’s, Ann Taylor, Calvin Klein, Target, Boden, Sundance, Lands End, Talbots, Gant and Plaza Magazine, Henderson has become one of the most sought after models in the business.
Julie can now add swimsuit designer to her impressive resume, as she released her first design collaboration with bikini powerhouse BASTA Surf. Having worn BASTA suits many times for Sports Illustrated and also featured in their 2011 campaign, Henderson is familiar with the line’s sense of sophistication and second-skin-like qualities. The 10 piece capsule collection hit the stores and online sites in February 2013 and has received great praise so far, ‘the collection is a definite SI Swim Model hit-list, offering a cut, color and style for every beach lover’ – Modelinia.
