Natalie Martin is a fashion designer based in Los Angeles. Born in the beachside town of Noosa Australia, Natalie's love of all things exotic started from a very young age. After completing her BA in Industrial design in Australia, she set out to see the world and after a stay in Paris settled in Los Angeles. For the past 6 years she has worked for the marketing and branding company Formapura.
In early 2010, Natalie decided to launch her own collection inspired by her love of travel and sense of adventure. Her search for unique fabrics and prints has taken her across the globe but it was Bali and their unique batik prints and amazing embroidery that truly inspired her. Natalie creates her own embroidered designs and uses distinctive prints to create her special one of a kind garments. She creates silhouettes that are effortless and femine, from breezy kaftans, shoulder baring silk dresses and blouses with fine embroidered details.
“My line really is a reflection of my personal style which is very relaxed. There is definitely a sense of glamour, but it's also understated; a lot the pieces can take you from day to dinner or entertaining at home with just a simple switch of accessories.”
