Collection – ONDINE

The A/W 18 collection "Ondine" is inspired by the old german tale "Undine" and stands for the idea of a modern nymphe, vulnerable and strong. It reflects her attempt of breaking free and become a grown woman. Powerful cuts meet playful, light elements. Sparkly, water like fabrics were brought together into wave-shaped lines. This collection is my graduate collection (B.A.).
Born in a small village of Ukraine in 1994, Natalie kept moving as a child between the countryside, a big city like Kiev and Germany, where she now lives and graduated in B.A. Fashion Design. She draws inspiration mostly out of nature, proving to herself over and over again the fact that "nature is an artist" and bring this "art" into clothes became her signature. Finding a good mixture between Haute Couture-Like It-Pieces and wearable designs became a guideline for her creations.
