Born in Beirut and raised in Dubai, Nathalie Trad completed the prestigious ESMOD International School in Paris with a bachelor’s degree in 2007. In 2008, she relocated to New York to study at Parsons The New School for Design, and left with a bachelor of business administration in design and management. She went on to work under the mentorship of Proenza Schouler before founding her own label in 2013.
Nathalie Trad’s statement clutch designs have gained international recognition as works of art in their own right. Her academic and intricate approach to design (together with the technical and aesthetic application of materials such as shell, wood, stone, resin, brass, and stainless steel) has seen her pieces reach the hands of Sienna Miller, Leandra Medine, and Olivia Palermo.
