Music plays a large role in my life and music from the 80’s has a plethora of fantastic music icons, namely David Bowie.
Sadly we lost this great musician, but his music and fashion lives on. His music and his courage to be bold and stand out from the crowd was awe inspiring, his music was legendary. Music is a must have while sketching and brings life to my designs. It has been the one saving grace through Covid! My black & white Ziggy Striped Stilettos are a tribute to this eternal artistic legend. If only he could have worn them!

Born into a Canadian Military family & having grown up globally; living in Germany, Venezuela, NS, NY, Milan, Cannes & travelling to many others gave Natalie exposure to some of the most exciting cultural cities world-wide, which have richly influenced her style aesthetic. Gifted with an innate talent for illustration passed down from Estonian g-grandfather who studied at prestigious L‘Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. After fashion studies in Vancouver, a call back to Europe was a natural evolution where she continued her formal fashion design education in the vibrant cities of Milan & London.
