Nathalie Trad is part of a new wave of sought-after independent designers. Born in Beirut, she earned a bachelor’s degree from the prestigious ESMOD International in Paris in 2007, and relocated to New York in 2008 to study at the Parsons New School for Design, where she earned a BBA in Design and Management. Nathalie later worked under the mentorship of Proenza Schouler, the highly-coveted New York-based womenswear and accessories brand before founding her own label in 2013. Nathalie Trad has gone on to win multiple awards for her statement clutch designs, which have gained recognition internationally as works of art in their own right. Nathalie's academic and intricate approach to design, together with the technical and aesthetic application of materials such as shell, wood, stone, resin, brass and stainless steel truly set her apart, making her a favourite of style icons such as Sienna Miller, Leandra Medine and Olivia Palermo.
