Bringing Classic Feminine Beauty Back into a Generation Lost
In a modern society where women wear skirts barely in inch below their behind, shirts that don’t leave anything to the imagination, this generation of women have lost a sense of class that was once highly regarded as beautiful in past generations. Nathanaelle Hottois establishes a new standard for how women nowadays should dress by looking back at the classics.
At the young age of twenty-three, Nathanaelle began designing clothes without any formal design education. She first learned to sew from her mother at the age of twelve. At the age of twenty-seven, Nathanaelle, now branded as Nathanalle Couture, won the prestigious LA Fashion Weekly’s Contemporary Women category. In that category she was nominated along side of DKNY, Michael Kors, Marc by Marc Jacobs and many more.
Nathanaelle has excelled exponentially over her competition because of her level of care and precision to detail. Inspired by the classic Baroque and Renaissance eras of fashion, Nathanaelle uses a lot of lace and pays careful attention to every detail of every outfit. Each dress is made custom for the client helping each woman look beautiful. Nathanaelle believes when a woman can put an outfit on and they feel good in that outfit then it will actually make them happier and feel classy and beautiful.
Nathanaelle loves form fitting dresses that bring out femininity. Her biggest inspiration is Coco Channel and her brave, non-conformist attitude towards life and fashion. Nathanaelle, herself, is not following the trend of modern fashion and having women look sexy, but rather having them look beautifully elegant. Her outfits have the same timelessness as Audrey Hepburn’s outfits in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Nathanaelle is bringing elegance to sexy and empowering women to look beautiful while classy. She describes what she is driving for here, “I want women to feel feminine. I want women to feel beautiful and to feel glamorous. I want women to feel a high esteem and self-respect for themselves.”
