Although she lives in Bali, fashion designer Nadya says that Asian and Western cultures influence her creations. She describes her inspiration as “cooking with leftovers,” as she uses fabrics and techniques that enhance each other and are sourced worldwide. She peppers one elegant jacket with antique French lace and handmade Balinese buttons.

This recipe for success comes together in Nadya’s lovely Bali compound, Puri Naga Studios, where more than 50 local workers and artisans create her fashions. Each piece is individually detailed with paint, batik, and beading — creating a mosaic of tones and textures.

With a holistic approach to fashion, Nadya believes in supporting local handicrafts that allow her customers to put together their most flattering looks. She sells her extensive collection in Paris, London, and Milan, as well as Jakarta and occasionally visits the desert during semi-annual visits to present trunk shows in the United States.
