N a t a s a H r u p i c fashion brand was
established by Slovenian fashion designer Nataša Hrupič in 2005. The
brand was denominated as the new name in town at its first collection
presentation for spring/summer 2006. In 2009, the brand has been
presented to the international market and become renowned by collections
with unique authorial concept and sophisticated approach in designing
clothes, based on duality. Combination of different or even opposing
approaches that combine the extensive knowledge of tailoring and
modeling with instinctive reactions and interventions in the design,
always lead to innovation and build a new concept of clothing design.
The style brand brings its own vision of fashion – it is based on
evaluation of art and sculpture, which implicates classical beauty in an
image of avant-garde, recognizes sensibility of concept, but above all
glorifies sophisticated femininity.
Collections of the brand are privileged as they are made of luxurious materials and prestigious methods of workmanship.
