Whenever Nataya’s marvelous creations are on display, a mist of wonder hangs in the air. A myriad of details sprinkle the dress and yet it all appears airy light while blending Belle Epoch, Baroque, and oriental ornaments, what connoisseurs acclaim as “Wearable Art”. From Ann Hathaway to Katie Holmes, some of the world’s most discerning women have shined in Nataya.

Her life began in a remote corner of the globe, in Tashkent, then the capital of the Soviet Republic of Uzbekistan. From architecture to craftsmanship, the place was a rare fusion of the Western European, Russian, and Oriental influences.
After settling in California as a teenager and having indulged in a number of art forms, Nataya finally found her strongest calling in bringing art and passion to women’s attire - seeking to fully unlock the glow of every woman and to make every woman exude inspiration to herself and others. Nataya, an every day Wearable Art fashion phenomenon, was born.
In recent years Nataya has been dividing her time between Paris, Rome, and Los Angeles courting the muse in the fabric of beauty of France, Italy, and California to the every day delight of women everywhere.
