Channeling Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus,” Doja cat looked every inch a Goddess in Natalia Fedner’s Chain & Swarovski Crystal Bikini in silver. Collaborating with Sia and Ozuna on the song and beautiful underwater music video for “Del Mar”, Doja Cat stole the show with her epic siren fashions styled by Brett Alan Nelson.
Natalia Fedner collaborated with Beyoncé’s stylist Zerina Akers on the gold chain hood headdress Beyonce wears in the “Already” section of her new film Black Is King. Zerina describes the inspiration behind the headpiece in the Hollywood Reporter. Natalia has worked with Beyonce and her team on numerous other occasions, including on her last big music film “Lemonade.”
Brazilian reggaeton super star, Anitta, is dominating the international music charts with her new single, “Tócame,” and making a bold fashion statement in Natalia Fedner Metal Couture. Natalia designed the Swarovski crystal and chain bikini for Anitta after stylist Janelle Miller reached out to the brand with a request for a show-stopping bikini. Anitta is also wearing the Chain Full Hand Bracelet & Chain Shrug.
Natalia Fedner is exploring the zeitgeist of masks – and society’s reaction to this now omnipresent accessory, both positive and negative. She designed a copper chain mask that can be worn alone or over a fabric mask. The concept is that of “protection” – channelled through the chainmail-like, patent-pending material, made from anti-microbial copper. The mask provides no viral protection but mimics the concept of medieval protection: armor. By using copper, she shows how you can call something anti-microbial, without it actually offering any protection – a reference to all the false claims and imperfect designs currently flooding the market. Looking toward the future, Natalia designed the mask to convert into a necklace. She sees the trend of masks – and society’s current obsession with them – as temporary. By making the mask convertible, she creates a permanent solution to a temporary trend. For each couture art mask sold, Fedner donates 50 surgical masks to nursing homes in need of PPE.
Alexis Carrington is clearly a big fan of Natalia Fedner. She wore the designer again on the recent episode of Dynasty (Season 3, Episode 17). Costumed by Meredith Markworth-Pollack, actress Elaine Hendrix looked sleek and in charge in the Gold Chain Skinny Scarf.
A message from Natalia:
My grandma Lida lived for several years at Wexner Heritage House in Columbus, Ohio. I would always visit her when I was in town. Like many of the residents there, my grandma was a holocaust survivor. My grandma was a fighter, but dementia was winning. She had limited English, so visits from family were vital to her happiness. My father would visit my grandma daily. Although she passed away 4 years ago, those daily visits are still fresh in my father’s memory. He told me he would be at a complete loss if he wasn’t allowed to visit her – like so many others aren’t able to visit their loved ones at this time due to Covid-19. He wouldn’t be able to handle the worry and stress – knowing how vulnerable she would be. The heartache of not being able to visit loved ones right now is hard enough as it is, but to worry about them getting sick is truly heart-breaking.
Our grandparents and parents in nursing homes are the most at-risk population. And one of the best ways to protect them is to make sure that the people who take care of them have appropriate PPE, such as surgical masks. Not only are the doctors, nurses, and care-takers protected, but our loved ones are less likely to get the virus. It has been proven that surgical masks are most affective for reducing the spread of virus droplets when worn by the contagious person.
I have spent the past month contributing to the “Make A Mask” effort- creating and donating masks to hospitals, first responders, essential workers, and the elderly. When friends and family started to volunteer donations to help with the mask making efforts, I realized I was in a unique position to help on a bigger scale. It’s great to be able to make cotton masks, but it’s even better to be able to obtain and distribute surgical masks and other PPE to those most in need, and often most overlooked.
For every Crystal for a Cause bracelet sold, we will donate 50% of profits to nursing homes in need of PPE. Whether through direct monetary donations or by using the funds to secure and donate surgical masks and other PPE. We already have the logistics worked out, so the money will be put to immediate use. We are also accepting direct donations (100% of donations will go directly to the nursing homes).
Currently, we are fundraising for Wexner Heritage Village and The Forum At Knightsbridge in Columbus, Ohio (Go Bucks!), but we are open to contributing to other retirement facilities anywhere in the USA. Please e-mail us if you know of one in need firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a reliable source for surgical masks, but the prices are steep. So please let us know if you have other sources. It is our #1 priority to get as many surgical masks as possible to these nursing homes immediately.
The folks at The Forum at Knightsbridge sent us this uplifting video – we can’t wait to help them!
After 31 years of living in the USA, Natalia Fedner – now an American citizen- was welcomed back to her native Ukraine with open arms. She hadn’t been back to her homeland since she left in the summer of 1988 as a refugee with her parents. After learning about the celebrity designer’s humble roots in Chernivtsi, Ukraine – Intergal Bud, a real estate development company based in Kyiv – reached out to Natalia to see if she would be interested in coming to Kyiv to celebrate her design success in the country of her birth. Natalia agreed upon one condition – she asked to bring her parents with her. It was an absolutely magical experience. Ukraine’s top press was invited out for the private fashion show- landing Natalia and her parents on the nightly news. An awe-inspiring, roof-top photoshoot was organized, involving 6 makeup and hair artists, 3 photographers, 12 models, and of course a drone. After the fashion show, Natalia was interviewed in front of the guests by L’Officiel Ukraine’s Ulyana Boyko. Natalia also met with local designers and discussed ways in which they could grow their businesses in an international marketplace.
Filling the hotel lobby to capacity, Natalia Fedner’s first hotel installation was a huge success. Sofitel provided the perfect setting, with Cool Heart Gallery serving as a gorgeous back drop. Models wearing Natalia Fedner mingled among guests, who sipped on specialty cocktails while viewing the Window France X Natalia Fedner displays. French elegance definitely met Hollywood glamour. Opening night attendees included Crystal Hunt, Olga Kay, Dania Ramirez, Eric Jess, Alexandra Adomaitis, Nadia Lanfranconi, Iman Crosson, Naomi Grossman, Anastasia Baranova, Jeff Greenberg, Samy Kamkar, Melissa Hanna, Janne Kyttanen, Francis Bertrand, Joslyn Davis, Jenny Buettner, Okera Banks, and Kelly Nishimoto.
LOS ANGELES – Nov. 23, 2019 – Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is ringing in the holidays with Art De Noel, the annual Christmas rendezvous that unites Sofitel hotels worldwide. Inspired by the world of haute couture, this year’s theme of ‘Christmas Couture’ invites guests to be dazzled by a distinctive design experience with a touch of French elegance and “art de vivre”, to “live the French way”.
While the theme emphasizes the chicness of French haute couture, the fashion influences of the City of Angels represent the glitzy glamour. To blend the two opposite yet complementary worlds to life, the hotel is partnering with American fashion designer Natalia Fedner, who is best known for her unorthodox use of metal textiles and knit evening wear. Educated in Paris and New York City, the Project Runway star is recognized for creating avant garde pieces for celebrities including Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson, Cher, Charlize Theron, Kim Kardashian, and Lenny Kravitz. In collaboration with French mannequin company Window France, Fedner is transforming Sofitel Los Angeles into a modish fashion maison for the holidays by using their extraordinary abstract mannequins to showcase her artistic creations. From Dec. 1, 2019 through Dec. 31, guests can experience the one-of-a-kind holiday decor they won’t find anywhere else.
Fedner’s garments and jewelry will be on display throughout the hotel, as well as utilized for unexpected yet glamorous holiday decor, from festive garlands to one-of-a-kind tree ornaments. Her signature, patent pending textile is a 100% stretch metal that instantaneously molds to the body, adopting the heat of the wearer within 15 seconds. Using gold, rose gold and silver-plated metals, Fedner’s wearable art will add glittering and alluring appeal to traditional holiday decor. Guests will marvel at the rare pieces that adorn the hotel, as well as the eye-catching Window France mannequins situated at the entryway, concierge and 30-foot Christmas tree.
Whether a local Angeleno or afar traveler, guests and visitors can take home a piece of the The Art De Noel ‘Christmas Couture’ experience by Sofitel Los Angeles. Fedner’s spectacular garments and exclusive ornaments from the Sofitel tree will be available for purchase, price upon request.
A mecca of intriguing design bursting with Instagram-worthy moments, Sofitel Los Angeles will be dressed to impress this holiday season. See the Christmas Couture winter wonderland for a limited time from Dec. 1, 2019 through Dec. 31.

The legendary Janet Jackson layered four Natalia Fedner couture necklaces to complete her look for the Pride Of Britain Awards. She wore the 14K rose gold dripping necklace, the gold choker, the silver choker, and the bronze choker – creating a “metal rainbow” effect; the necklaces blend perfectly into each other creating the illusion of one larger necklace.
Renowned international fashion competition, World Of WearableArt selected Natalia Fedner’s Python gown as a finalist for the 2019 show. The 2019 Show season ran from 26 Sept – 13 Oct at the TSB Arena in Wellington, New Zealand. For three weeks, 108 finalist garments created by 115 designers representing 22 countries and regions came to life on stage in front of an audience of around 60,000 people.
Made from over 3000 feet of silver and black metal chain, the gown incorporated Natalia Fedner’s patent-pending technology, which allowed it to take on the shape of the model. On stage, it became an optical illusion – tricking the eye into seeing a “printed patterned dress.” While up close, and in reality, it was a series of cleverly interlinked chains of two different colors.

In a featured article in Vogue named Lenny Kravitz “Best Dressed” on the red carpet in a Natalia Fedner patent-pending Chainmaille Stretch Scarf in light gold, which doubled as a top, under his denim vest. Kravitz’s “delicate golden halter top by Natalia Fedner appeared as if it was spun by gilded spiders from heaven”, Vogue raved.

Natalia Fedner has received a one year art fellowship from the National Arts Club in New York City. The National Arts Club is a private club on Gramercy Park, Manhattan, New York City. It was founded in 1898 by Charles DeKay, an art and literary critic of the New York Times to “stimulate, foster, and promote public interest in the arts and to educate the American people in the fine arts. ” The NAC Artist Fellows program was launched to recognize and support a select number of leading artists in a range of artistic disciplines and is an integral part of the NAC’s mission to foster, promote and support the arts in America.
Since its founding in 1898, the Club has been committed to welcoming artists through presentations, performances, exhibitions and as members. The Club now programs over 150 free events a year, enjoyed by more than 25,000 New Yorkers. In our 120th year, the Club is renewing its commitment to the artistic community and seeks to foster a welcoming environment where artists, members and their guests can convene.
It’s always an honor to have a design displayed in the iconic Bergdorf Goodman windows. Mixed media artist Lyle Reimer personally selected Natalia’s piece to be displayed alongside his art in the center window after spotting it in the “Noir” shop inside of Bergdorf’s. The windows were part of a celebration of the Lyle XOX: Head of Design book release by Rizzoli New York. The visuals team at Bergdorf Goodman did an amazing job per usual.
After a successful event in Beverly Hills, Hanro and Natalia Fedner teamed up again to celebrate fashion week and Valentine’s Day in NYC.

Hollywood stylists, taste makers, and celebrities in attendance included Timothy Chernyaev, Justin Lynn, Niki Schwan, Sharon Chitrit, Gabriela Tena, Alexandra Grandquist, Elizabeth TenHouten, Naomi Grossman, Alexandra Adomaitis, Jezlan Moyet, Okera Banks, and Nadia Lanfranconi.

(Please note this event has already passed. To read about it click here). It’s no secret that Natalia Fedner’s designs pair perfectly with Hanro’s undergarments. Strength, beauty, quality, and attention to detail are features both brands are proud of. So it only makes sense that the two brands would come together for a trunk show! Come see how to layer Natalia’s styles like a pro with Hanro. Say hello to Natalia, check out her new collection, and explore Hanro’s new Beverly Hills shop. Refreshments will be served. November 29, 3pm – 8pm. Please RSVP to RSVP@hanrousa.com and be sure to mention if you are a stylist.
Not only are Natalia Fedner’s metal designs part of the hottest new shop on Fifth Avenue – “Noir” by Linda Fargo (inside of Bergdorf Goodman), they are also on display in the coveted store windows! Be sure to visit the 2nd floor to see the designs in person. The visuals team at Bergdorf Goodman is the best in the business- and the way they display the pieces, inside the store and in the windows, is unparalleled.
Natalia attended the launch party of “Noir” on September 4th, 2018. Yes, there really was a giant wooden horse – and it was stunning!
We are very excited to announce that select Natalia Fedner dresses, gowns, and undergarments are now available at BergorfGoodman.com. The collection will be available in store starting in September. If you haven’t seen it already, we highly recommend you check out “Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf’s” – a wonderful documentary on the legendary store. Scroll down to view the trailer.
Icon and animal lover Cher wore a beautiful handmade silver spiderweb tank to the Free The Wild Charity event in London. A link to the top is coming soon. In the meantime check out our other designs here.
A fan fit for royalty made its world premiere in the hands of royalty herself, Jennifer Lopez. JLo expertly fanned herself with the Natalia Fedner Empress Fan in her newest music video, “El Anillo”. After all, who needs a ring, when you can rock a fan with way more sparkle? The Empress fan is made of hand-stained hickory wood, patent-pending chain, Swarovski crystals, and yes, there is even some 14K gold. Natalia Fedner’s take on the Victorian fan is a nod to the steampunk community.

The shimmering custom Natalia Fedner metal dress Alina Baraz wore for her debut performance at Coachella perfectly matched the singer’s sensual sound. It glittered with the slightest move, looking like sparkling water or crystals. But the truth is, the dress was made from over 900 feet of rose gold chain. The patent pending textile truly hugged every curve and gave Alina both “wow factor” as well as an incredible silhouette.
The dress is custom, but a similar design can be found by clicking here: Chain Racerback Mini Dress By Natalia Fedner
Charlize Theron is truly a fashion icon. Fedner was honored that Theron’s stylists, Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haen, saw fit to dress the megastar in the her hand made black knit silk gown with 14K gold neckline. The editorial was shot by James White and has a dark, sultry mood – a perfect match for the dress!
In her latest film, “All I Wish” (formerly titled “A Little Something For Your Birthday”), Sharon Stone plays a fashion designer with a strong penchant for a certain Natalia Fedner chainmaille necklace scarf which she wears throughout the film. With its elegant yet edgy aesthetic it is the perfect compliment to both Sharon and her character. Each mesh like scarf is carefully handmade. The metal is pressed flat to create an ethereal sparkle – that looks likes crystals from a distance. This beautiful jewelry chain scarf can be worn as a necklace or scarf.
Fashion media took notice of the Natalia Fedner-designed metal chain tank worn by Lenny Kravitz during his performance with Katy Perry at the 49th Super Bowl halftime show last Sunday (2/1) in Phoenix.
Just Jared: www.justjared.com/2015/02/01/lenny-kravitz-missy-elliott-super-bowl-halftime-show-2015-guests-video/
The 100% metal tank is made of individual chain links composed of copper and 14K gold. Natalia collaborated with Lenny’s stylist, Rodney Burns, and Lenny himself to come up with the perfect top for an iconic performance.
Lenny Kravitz has been wearing Natalia Fedner pieces on stage and red carpets since October, 2014 when she first started designing metal tops for his “Strut” tour.
Hugging every one of her curves, the Natalia Fedner Gold Mini Dress made its debut in Jlo’s new music video, “Booty”. The dress is made with patent pending technology – that allows the metal dress to have 4-way stretch to fit the wearer like a second skin. Styled by stylist duo Rob & Mariel, Jennifer Lopez looked amazing!
