About Nathalie & Her Shop
Nathalie is a Los Angeles based fashion designer specializing in classically inspired clothing with a French wink. Her designs are known for their great fit, beautiful fabrics and design details, which have won her a devoted following. The Nathalie Seaver brand can be found in her namesake store in the hot shopping mecca of West Third Street in Los Angeles.
Growing up in New York City and Paris, Nathalie has a strong French influence in her design aesthetic. As a child, she drew fantasy wardrobes for herself on paper and collected quilt pieces, fascinated by the variety of patterns. As a teenager, she transformed and tailored odd-sized vintage clothing for herself and, in the process, learned about construction and design details.
Nathalie illustrated each of her French-born mother’s four cookbooks while her career path led her to the Film and Television business. She moved from New York to Los Angeles and worked for several years as a development and production executive. While a "suit," she continued to design her own clothes as a fix for ill-fitting pieces she never quite liked and eventually followed her muse and left the entertainment industry to launch her own clothing label.
Utilizing painting techniques she learned in Paris, her first collection consisted of one-of-a-kind, hand-painted silk scarves. It was immediately noticed by some of Los Angeles’ best boutiques. Soon she added hand-painted skirts and dresses which Nordstrom picked for their top Savvy department. When Nathalie agreed to create silk chiffon skirts custom dyed-to-match their knitwear, a Los Angeles showroom picked up her line and catapulted her label into shops across the country. Her designs soon evolved into a 1930’s inspired “alternative special-occasion” collection with silk chiffon dresses and jackets in addition to her skirts.
Nathalie’s unique flair for combining great prints and colors resulted in the creation of a reversible skirt design that flatters women of all ages and sizes. This “REVA” skirt is a long-running best-seller and cemented her reputation as the designer for the busy but style-conscious woman.
Nathalie continues to create timeless, delightful wardrobe essentials and loves to have fun with her designs. She especially enjoys special commissions that inspire her styling imagination and allows her to take it outside of the box. She makes regular visits to Paris and New York and currently lives in Los Angeles. She’s an avid movie fan and tennis buff, an obsessed foodie and art lover.
