#ESPspotlight on: Natasha Zinko - FASHION SCOUT OFF-SCHEDULE CATWALK, LFW SS14


Although better known for her jewellery designs, I have been in LOVE with Natasha Zinko, since I saw models Rozi and Monica just be Art in her clothing on the Jewellery Show London catwalk in June.

When I learned she would be showing her latest collection on the Fashion Scout stage during LFW SS14, there was simply no way I couldn't include her in this month's #ESPspotlight series, introducing some of the designers that you will be seeing on the catwalks over the next few weeks!



Before we get to the fashion though - Meet the Designer...

BIOGRAPHY

Natasha Zinko is a London-based Russian designer that graduated with a BA Honours recognition for Jewellery Design at Central St Martins. Natasha’s foray into jewellery design stemmed from her attention to detail. She has a passion for smaller and finer objects and her talent flourishes in hand-made pieces.

NATASHA believes that jewellery is personal and therefore creates one-of-a-kind designs. Each piece is carefully researched and several models are made in a private studio before achieving the final outcome. Natasha uses the finest stones and materials that she sources from trade fairs such as Basel, and from her many trips around the world

Her jewellery is a play on symbols, familiar or proverbial, but given a new translation. Such recognisable icons like skulls and skeletons, crosses, angel wings, cobwebs, hearts, and the evil eye; to name a few; are reworked on gold and precious stones. The result is a sense of irony and a personal meaning for the wearer.

NATASHA ZINKO is synonymous with unique handcrafted jewellery that aspires to make a statement.  

Natasha’s jewellery is entirely hand-made in her workshop in London. She draws inspiration from the buzz and every-changing London landscape. She resides in west London and her boutique in Mayfair’s Maddox street is testament to her commitment to this city.
