Neo-vintage trends represent past romance. This past romance can be expressed in shoes, apparel and accessories styled according to the past epochs. The silhouettes are clearly “read” in every item and in every outfit. Although we realize that this set or that set only seems to be vintage-inspired, each set was actually inspired by some unique epoch. In other words, we observe the newly born model and silhouette.

That is what stylists used to call neo-vintage. Many “red carpeteers” follow neo-vintage trends: • Christina Aguilera is the gal who reminds us of the pinup epoch and the new look of the late 1940s. Yet sometimes she prefers to wear flapper gowns. Nonetheless, we have seen her wear nothing but neo-vintage apparel over the past few years. • Sarah Jessica Parker reminds us of the mid-1950s. She found her style in classic full skirts. • Scarlett Johansson always shows off mambo-inspired gowns by D&G that are styled after the 1950s. This style hides the famous figure issues of the actress quite well. • Dita von Teese is a vamp gal in the New Look by Dior. She often wears classic Paris black apparel, including pencil skirts – the very style that brought fame to Christian Dior. • Duffy shows the perfect sense of 1960s-inspired fashion. • Other celebrities may also represent the styles of past epochs. The vintage style or, more exactly, neo-vintage style cannot be created without thinking of all the details. So, you must pick shoes, jewelry and any other accessories very carefully. Neo-vintage brings you to the days of Sense and Sensibility
and probably retro luxury as well. All these dresses were designed in our day, but if you want to play a role of your granny, Nataya dresses will help you.

The dresses inspired by grannies and grand grannies represent Nataya’s signature style. In the new collection, as well as in the previous ones, you may discover the style of past epochs for prom or cocktail parties; jazz or Victorian weddings; the perfect retro style outfits for your bridesmaids; and, definitely, vintage-style gowns for the mother of the bride or groom. If you get acquainted with the creative work of Nataya, you may describe her style as vintage style for romantic ladies. The stylized design of corsets or old-fashioned crinoline skirts instead of the full skirts and real corsets truly make her style luxurious and multi-functional. Playful details and neo-vintage elements complete the look of any lady who has worn her apparel.

The key piece of the collection is probably the best-selling Great Gatsby Dress in ash/rose, which will be available soon. The airy fabrics used by the designer for her new models make the dress’ wearer feel comfortable on any day of spring and summer.
