Natacha Van – Founder, AFDS (Cambodia)
- Natacha Van has emerged as a leading global talent based in Cambodia with a distinctively feminine aesthetic. Through merging classic evening gown elements with an uptown chic attitude she has created a supremely womanly and unapologetically glamorous sensibility.
- Since debuting her Ready-to-Wear Collection in 2010, Natacha has been dedicated to making clothes that were as beautifully crafted from inside out. With the focus on couture quality craftsmanship, over 90% of the Natacha Van Collection is manufactured in London. The materials used for her collection are 100% handcrafted in London / Hong Kong using the highest quality materials and construction.
- She is influenced by many sources including the classic fairy-tale photography of Tim Walker, and the fashion designer works of Charles James and Jacques Fath. She also finds inspiration on her travels to Asia and Europe as well as in fairy-tales, Greek myths and style inspired mostly by natural forms.
- Natacha is an esteem pioneer member and fashion ambassador of the ASEAN Fashion Designer Showcase representing Cambodia.
