INSPIRED: Natalie Lindsey, Fashion Designer

We're excited to kick off our new INSPIRED series with our fun and stylish friend, Natalie Lindsey, who is a San Francisco-based fashion designer and creator of Natalie Deayala Collection. Her great taste and effortless cool personal style is inspiring in itself. She style blogs, does calligraphy, and has an eye for interior decor. Lots of inspiration to be had. You'll want to follow her. That, combined with her talent for designing smart, flexible pieces that take her customer from day to night, season to season, inspires us. She is a designer to watch.

While searching for the perfect dress for her bridesmaids in 2013, Natalie Lindsey realized something was drastically missing. Stylish options. "I noticed that bridesmaids were wearing the same crinkle chiffon dresses in every wedding I saw, and [I] found them outdated and boring", says Natalie, who decided to start a collection of dresses in the midst of planning her own wedding. "I thought that there should be a line of dresses and gowns that you would actually buy for yourself but could also be used as bridesmaids dresses", the goal she had in mind when creating Natalie Deayala CollectionA picture of modern elegance, Natalie's fluid designs are timeless and chic. No fuss or frills. Her pieces are versatile and can be easily dressed up or down, depending on the accessories, and can be styled in fun ways to keep the look new. In other words, investment-worthy.

 In my Q and A session with Natalie below, she dishes on starting her own biz, what inspires her, and her secret to getting those gorgeous, loose mermaid waves (her hair isn't fair). But first!...  Some photos of Natalie showing off a few of her silk dresses in new spring colors - including orchid, Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year - and the sleek Double V Gown. In case you were wondering, the High Neck Gown (personal fave :-) is what she ended up selecting for her bridesmaids. Whether you're a bride in need of a shower or rehearsal dinner look, a bridesmaid, or you're just looking for a fun new summer dress, Natalie has you covered.

Hope y'all enjoyed meeting Natalie! You can follow her collection and style updates on Instagram @nataliedeayalacolletion
