As spring is nearing, the fashion world is looking forward to next fall and winter. New York Fashion Week kicked off yesterday, February 7, and will continue through the 14th. Fall 2013 collections don’t stop showing then, though. Le Chic is excited to announce, Nathalie Kraynina will be showcasing her Fall/Winter 2013 collection on Friday, February 15. Her collection will be shown as part of Williamsburg Fashion Weekend’s 12th season in Brooklyn.

For Nathalie’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection she focused on reinventing black. She shared with us where her inspiration for her Fall/Winter 2013 collection came from:
“This season Nathalie Kraynina Fall/Winter 2013 collection is all about bringing South American traditions to New York. With warm colors and intellectual fabrics Nathalie Kraynina’s collection continues to attract the working woman. Faced with problems at work and in their personal lives, Nathalie Kraynina’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection reminds women they are warriors, just like Dona Morina also known as La Malinche, a South American warrior. With confidence and wisdom La Malinche helped with the conquest of Mexico, translating for Cortez allowing him to speak to the people. The inspiration of Nathalie Kraynina’s collection comes from the strength of La Malinche. Through this collection women can carry strength to get through the workday and personal struggles with what they wear.”
Williamsburg Fashion Weekend showcases 10 emerging designers and is open to the public to allow them to see close up the “future of fashion.” In Williamsburg’s press release they said, “The underlying power of the designers who show at WFW, is their love for what they do, where there is love there is integrity, and integrity is what we believe is sorely lacking in our field of endeavor.”
