Our next featured designer is Natt Taylor. Like Edmond, Natt was featured in our show last year and has found great success. She recently won the Belk Southern Designer showcase and will have her collection sold in Belk Stores across the country.

NATT TAYLOR is a womenswear collection that celebrates the natural feminine form with bold color, sensual shapes, and subtle details.  Inspired by women challenged with finding the perfect style balance between work and life, NATT TAYLOR offers a fresh, new twist on classic silhouettes which transition easily from day to evening.

Taylor’s non-traditional path of fashion began at the age of 16 creating dresses for herself and close friends in her dorm room at Morris Brown College. Upon graduating with a degree in Accounting, Taylor entered and promptly left a job in corporate America when she began receiving a host of client requests for weddings and proms. What was once just some part-time fun began to take on a life of its own.

With a desire to pursue a full-time career in design, she relocated back to her hometown in New Jersey to gain immediate access to what New York City had to offer.  Within a few months, a chance encounter with singer Keyshia Cole led to a stint as a celebrity stylist giving Taylor’s designs national exposure.

In 2005, Natt Taylor officially launched The DESTINI Collection, which has since been relaunched as NATT TAYLOR.  The collection was first sold to Envy Boutique in Atlanta where her signature high waist pant with bow sold out in less than a week.  In 2007, Taylor relocated back to Atlanta and quickly gained entry into some of Atlanta’s top boutiques including Tracy Nicole and NV-U.  Features in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and Daily Candy Atlanta brought rave reviews from Macy’s buyers and other local boutiques.

Today, the collection is sold online at www.natttaylor.com and in select boutiques in NJ, Chicago, and Georgia.
