Natalie was born in Iran during a turbulent time. In the wake of a nearly decade long war, her family left for Sweden seeking liberation and freedom. With new hope and independence, Natalie found her true calling: helping those in need. At the age of twenty, she moved to Los Angeles to live and work at a shelter for homeless youth. Her passion for charity led her to search for ways to give back more globally. It was at this moment she decided to study fashion design; a way for her to create something truly beautiful with a purpose.
Upon completion of her studies, Natalie relocated to New York City where she currently resides and designs custom pieces, as well as tailor-made wedding gowns.
A portion of the proceeds from each wedding gown she makes is donated to Restore NYC, an organization that rescues and houses victims of human trafficking.
