Natalie Martin is a Los Angeles based fashion designer whose line, Natalie Martin, launched in 2011. Born in Noosa, Australia, Natalie’s love of all things Summer started from a young age. Natalie was always obsessed with style – whether it was creating clothing to sell to local markets or spending hours putting together the perfect outfit. Natalie's dresses are made from hand batik printed silk. This painstaking process involves the technique of manual wax-resist dying. Once the fabric is painted with wax designs, it is placed in a dye bath where only the areas with no wax are dyed. The wax is then removed with boiling water, and repeated if multiple colors are desired.
