Catherine at Guy Morse- Brown has been speaking to Natasha in the last couple of weeks , “The ‘Hat’ is my great passion; discovered throughout my cultural, professional and artistic voyage which started after graduating in Literature, Philosophy, drama and Cinema from La Sapienza Università,Rome; she said.
Natasha followed her degree with a fashion diploma from Accademia di Moda e Costume, and then went on to work as a costume assistant in the film and theatre industry. This training and experience has been fundamental to my professional development. Each one of her creations, born from the amalgamation of her intense studies, a passion for the past and a craving for the contemporary.
Natasha’s ultimate goal is to create hats which are not just a simple accessory, but which perfectly “define” the essence of the wearer.”
