Natalia Fedner is an haute couture designer educated in Paris and NYC, currently based in Los Angeles. Natalia is most well known for creating avant garde designs and jewelry for celebrities including Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Cher, Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, Sharon Stone, Shakira, Kim Kardashian, Tiffany Haddish, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Rita Ora, Lenny Kravitz, Lea Michele, Giuliana Rancic, Jessie J, Kristin Chenoweth, Pamela Anderson, Bebe Rexha, Keke Palmer, Fifth Harmony, Laverne Cox, Rose McGowan, Steve Aoki, and others. During her studies and after graduating from Parsons School of Design, Natalia worked for Calvin Klein Collection, Donna Karan Collection, and Marc Jacobs. Her designs have been on runways in Paris and NYC, and featured in the prestigious holiday windows of the original Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC. While competing on Project Runway: Under The Gunn, she created the first working mechanical dress in the history of the series. Her interest in designing and inventing started at the early age of 4 when she began collecting “pretty colored wires” that were left as trash outside of a local telephone communications company in her native Chernovtsy, Ukraine (She would turn them into bracelets for herself and friends). In addition to designing, she has also created and produced video fashion content for Getty Images, Perez Hilton, Defy Media, and Magical Elves. For fun, she likes to hack knitting machines and play with circuit boards and LEDs.
Natalia leads a small team in creating unique one-of-a-kind pieces for clients and stores. Her atelier is located in the heart of West Hollywood. For her and her team, each piece is like wearable art – no two pieces are alike and the process for making each is as unique as its final result. Whenever possible vintage silk fabrics are used to make the yarn, creating not only a beautiful and limited design, but also one that is environmentally and animal friendly. The yarn, the garments, even the hand engraved silver and gold plated metal brand tags are all made in Los Angeles. Natalia is committed to keeping all aspects of production in the USA. For Natalia’s signature “Black Widow” knitwear, no electricity is used – each stitch is moved by hand and each garment is sewn up by hand using French haute couture techniques Natalia studied in Paris and has taught to her team.
CHAINMAILLE 2.0 - PATENT PENDING
After a rigorous process of trial and lots of errors, Natalia successfully designed a 100% metal textile that acts just like a 4-way stretch fabric. It instantaneously molds to the body, adopting the heat of the wearer within 15 seconds, and is both comfortable and strong. Just ask JLo – she famously wore it in her sexy “Booty”music video (let’s just say it really does cling to every curve). Stretch Metal is currently patent pending. As a company, we look forward to continuing to build on this new textile and collaborating with other designers/companies on its many uses.
For Boutiques and Stylists
Currently we offer limited custom designs to stylists with their own clientele and luxury boutiques. Because we do haute couture, we are limited in our quantities, but are able to get you the designs much faster than commercial companies that operate on seasonal schedules. The turnover time is generally 3-5 weeks dependent on the size of the order. If you are interested in learning more, please email us your reseller ID number and store information: [email protected]
