New York Fashion Week FW’12 – Josie Natori
RTW Fall Winter 2012 – Josie Natori
Born Josephina Almeda Cruz, she credits her entrepreneurial nature to the matriarchal society she grew up in along with the support of her close-knit Filipino family.What began with creating lingerie on her living room floor truly has evolved into a lifestyle. “Natori is a total concept, a way of life,” says Natori. “I just happened to start at the back door with lingerie. Now as the company grows, we grow our sensibility too, taking our concept and making it a whole world. As we say here, Natori is ‘where life meets art’.”Josie Natori’s 2012 Fall Winter ready-to-wear collection was inspired by Mongolia and the drama of that untamed land of the Nomads. Luxe fabrics include Italian jersey, cashmere, suede, lush velvet, lace, jacquard and sequin. In a rich palette of vanilla, champagne, gold, imperial red, purple, grey and black.
