Natalia bridal collection is inspired by the glamorous and sensuous evening wear elegance of the 1920s and 1930s.

Using Bias cut technique, Natalia is able to produce magnificent gowns in satins, crepe-de-chines, crepes and chiffons by cross cutting the fabric, creating a flare and fluidity of drapery that other methods can’t achieve. Many of the gowns can be slipped on over the head: placed on the human form, they come alive.
The 1920’s and 1930's were a golden era for stepping out in style, and dancing Charleston and Lindy hop to the jazz and swing music of the big bands. Natalia is a keen swing dancer and her floaty collections are inspired by the movement and energy of those dances.
Natalia’s bridal wear gowns are named after seminal music and songs performed by the like of jazz clarinettist Artie Shaw, trombonist Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Annette Hanshaw, Clara Edwards and Al bowlly.
We are encouraging you to listen to the songs Natalia’s dresses are named for.
In collaboration with the bride, Natalia will design the dress to reflect the aspect of personality the bride wants to express on the day.
As a true designer Natalia can either help the bride to materialise the dress she dreams of or point her to a best suited style.
In both case the result is a gown reflecting the true nature of the bride.
