Josie Natori invites fashion bloggers to preview Natorious Spring 2010
Lately, I have been blessed enough to meet highly accomplished women who have retained their sweetness and humility. The most recent of these encounters have been with Josie Natori, founder and CEO of the Natori company, who invited a group of fashion bloggers to preview her latest Natorious Essentials collection.
The event wasn’t just a fashion preview – it was a look into all of Josie’s “essentials,” an indulgent participation into her glamorous life. In addition to taking us through her line piece by piece, she also introduced us to her family, served us her favorite champagne and dimsum, and gave us a mini-tour of her couture-laden closet.
However, the best part (and everyone’s favorite) of the evening was the private piano concert by Josie on her grand Steinbeck. Josie was actually a child a prodigy who performed concerts starting at the very young age of nine so this was a serious treat. Clip below!

Yes, that is a second grand piano in the foreground. Sorry for the shaky quality and for ending so abruptly. But I wanted to enjoy the performance and not worry about filming!
Now onto the fashion. When I first met Josie, I thought it was perhaps Lanvin she wearing (it was the draping), but I found out shortly after that it was actually one of her own! Natorious Essentials pieces are made of jersey and soft knits so they are not only heavenly to the touch, they are 100% functional, flattering, and travel-friendly. Josie’s designs are extremely forgiving as well so whether you are a 2 or plus-size, Natorious will look great on you. Not many designers can boast that.
