It’s hard to believe it’s been 7 years since Natalia Fedner was on Project Runway. So it feels particularly special to dress the stunning host and super model Heidi Klum. Heidi wore the Midas Chain Mini Dress for an artistic photo shoot with celebrity photographer Russell James styled by Deborah Afshani.
Bling Empire star and celebrity DJ Kim Lee wore a Natalia Fedner chain dress for her editorial in Rolling Stone Korea. The dress, cheekily titled “Metal Marilyn” by Natalia – does indeed have a similar silhouette to Marilyn Monroe’s famous 7 Year Itch dress. Natalia’s version is plated using a physical vapor deposition process which gives it a dark iridescence – a midnight rainbow. A silver version of this dress is also featured on a ballet dancer in Fedner’s fashion film – Triptych.
Playboy featured model Kira Dikhtyar on the cover of their September issue wearing a Natalia Fedner light gold Metal Marilyn chain dress (this item is currently only available for custom order, but see the Metal Mini Dress.)
Dikhtyar also wore a rose gold chain flapper hat. Check out the light gold Chainmaille Scarf which can be wrapped around the head for a similar effect.
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.

We can finally reveal what we’ve been working on for 6 months! Working with Sports Illustrated Swim has been a truly wonderful experience.

After a successful event in Beverly Hills, Hanro and Natalia Fedner teamed up again to celebrate fashion week and Valentine’s Day in NYC. Model Gabrielle Covers, showed off Natalia Fedner’s silk spiderweb gown – and paired it with a sexy silk Hanro slip. Actress Elaine Hendrix (The Parent Trap, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion) perused the collection. Stylists, buyers, tastemakers, and friends stopped by to checkout the designs and say hello.

A wonderful success, the inaugural Hanro + Natalia Fedner event in Beverly Hills was a stylish way to kick off the holiday season. Natalia presented her reversible metal dresses for the first time. And although she was accused of witchery, she took it as a compliment. Project Runway model Leslie Allen was on hand to show off the metal magic. 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.

A lil preview of the new collection! Many pieces in our new collection can be worn inside out, forwards and backwards. This is the first metal clothing collection to ever do this! Yes, the pattern is completely different on the inside. And as always our patent pending technology allows this 100% metal dress to stretch in 4 directions to fit a variety of figures. Thank you @hanro.official for the incredible preview party last night in Beverly Hills. @_leslieallen_ is wearing a Hanro allure slip under our metal mini dress. The dress is so new it doesn’t have a name yet ! 🖤🖤🖤 #fashioninnovation #textiledesign #hautecouture #chainmail

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.

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.
