The partnership, both in life and in entrepreneurship, of Julien and Emily.
Everything started the first day of university in the Environment Design program at UQAM. Surprisingly their lives have been intertwined since their teenage years! Same hometown, same high school, quite surprising that they’ve never met before. There's an instant connection, not surprising all things considered.
Two years later, in August 2014, the happy young couple returns from a two-month trip across Europe, their spirits filled to the brim with passion and inspiration.
Sparks fly, the creative cogs start turning, and thus was born Julien & Emily Design.
We are two young Montreal-based designers, graduates from the École de Design of UQAM. We create products from our illustrations that we print locally here in Montreal and assemble in our studio.
A collection of high quality sleep masks and fashion apparel,
designed and produced by Julien & Emily
Inspired by our Lifestyle our mantra is as follows.
" Live happily, take full advantage of life and all the joy it can bring you.
Love freely, whether it be your friends, family, significant other or furry companion.
Sleep deeply, take the time to relax so that you may live and love all the better. "
An Aura is described as this : "A distinctive energy believed to radiate from a person or object".
And that is exactly how we see our brand. When you choose one of our products, you are taking the passion we have put into creating and making it, and giving it new meaning and memories. A simple cat mask for someone becomes 'Bella', another 'Tiger', they each take on a new personnality, an Aura of their own!
In the end Aura is not just a product line or a brand it’s our energy and yours combine!
Aura is the community that we wish to promote!
