Nina Naustdal was born in Oslo and fell in love with fashion and design from an early age when she was inspired by her Grandma’s work as a seamstress. She represented Norway at athletics in Track and Field until the age of 18 before studying fashion design at Esmod.
Having moved to the UK and become a mother to three children, as well as seven Chihuahuas, Nina launched her own eponymous brand in May 2011, opened her first Boutique on Walton Street, and now works by appointment only from her new showroom in Chelsea, SW3.
Nina is passionate about Couture and loves creating dresses that are feminine, special and unique. Her life philosophy is based around the premise that is ‘Normal is Boring’ and that is reflected in her designs as she takes inspiration from precious stones to create collections that feature glamorous cocktail dresses and gowns in fluid, jewel-toned Italian silks glittering with hundreds of individually hand-applied Swarovski crystals as well as hand picked exclusive fabrics sourced from all over the world.
Nina’s new Ready-To-Wear collection includes colourful prints in feminine shapes for everyday wear and her new range of bridal wear is elegant, distinctive and very far from boring!
All Nina’s pieces are made in her London atelier so that she can personally oversee every stage of production and ensure that each piece is finished to the highest quality and that the dresses are perfectly cut to compliment her clients.
