On the 29th of May, Natali Ruden will present a new author collection called Eden, which once again proves that she is a master of experimenting and doesn't shy away from unorthodox materials. One of her faces is Andrea Verešová.
The luxurious collection was photographed in the Prague Botanical Garden in New Town, where I had the chance to speak with both ladies. I can promise we have a lot to look forward to!
I caught Natali and Andrea in the midst of preparations for a photo shoot, yet they took the time to explain to me how the new collection differed from the previous ones.
This time, it offers more than luxury gowns: flowing, colorful summer clothes, shorts, jackets and,most importantly, an interesting choice of fabrics.
“I'm looking for inspiration, exploring new directions, buying new fabrics, all of which has an impact on my worldview. That's why you'll find new elements in the summer collection,” says Natali Ruden, adding: “We create haute couture models for exceptional opportunities and personalities. At the same time, we wish to appeal to the younger generation with our new collection, for which purpose we have also selected new fabrics and cuts.
Model Andrea Verešová, who has been working with Natali Ruden for 20 years, also found liking in the new collection.
“I became her muse. I seem to be the type that inspires her, which is an honor for me,” Andrea Verešová said about their long-term cooperation.
The model admires Natali's creativity, her courage in the selection of materials and the fact that she doesn't get stuck on a single style. She also speaks highly about the timelessness of Natali's models.
"I have a 20-year-old dress from her collection in my wardrobe. When I pull it out today, I can still wear it outside and it looks chic.”
At the fashion show, which will be held in the luxury Preciosa boutique in Prague on May 29, all 40 new models from the new collection will be introduced. How did Andrea describe them?
“They are cheerful, colorful and playful. We're in the botanical garden now, which actually fits the collection. The new models by Natali Ruden testify to the joy of life, fashion, creativity. I think that fashion is a game and it is meant to make our lives more beautiful, more enjoyable and cheerful. And Natali's quite successful at that.”
