Inspired by a modern era of digital media and electronic music, Navada embodies an array of vibrant colours emphasised through imaginative and exclusive prints. Navada is being developing as an progressive brand, producing fun and innovative, yet sustainable, limited-issue designs. Supporting local business is of great importance to the Navada brand, with the majority of production carried out in Poland to ensure high quality and promote Polish trade on both the local and international fashion scenes.
Natalia Szczepanska is the designer behind Navada. Extremely talented in styling, Natalia is a recent tailoring graduate of The University of Arts London, with extensive knowledge of innovative graphics and print. Relocating from Poland to London in 2008, she has studied at both LCF and CSM, refining her pattern-cutting and garment construction skills. She has considerable flair for print and design, honed during an eight-month placement with Alexander McQueen, and she has now combined her practical and design skills to create a striking, ready-to-wear brand.
