ABOUT NATALIYA

Growing up in Dnipropetrovsk (aka: Dnipro), Ukraine, Nataliya absorbed a classical education in the art of clothing design, construction, pattern making, and professional sewing techniques from local colleges, as well as learning from local artisans. She was able to further hone those skills when she came to the Midwest and worked with numerous clothiers and designers. The combination of her formal college training and years of experience provided her the understanding of construction and design allowing her to evolve her own aesthetic.

As a child, Nataliya watched movies and wanted to be the beautiful lady in the red dress – enchanting, breathtaking, awe-inspiring. She always wanted to be noticed in a crowd. However, the luxury of a new dress and current fashions weren’t available, she was forced to be creative. So, Nataliya started using her creativity at a very young age, for her school clothes and more, ensuring she had unique clothes. She has always viewed the world through the lens of clothing, wherever she went, cataloging clothing looks in her head and sketching them when she would get home. That was then, this is now – now, after consuming generations of knowledge in design and fashion, Nataliya believes fashion speaks a language all can understand and she strives to share the language with everyone – it’s how she communicates. Nataliya thrives on creating the special “red dress” or ‘big wedding dress” feeling for each of her clients, no matter the occasion. Every occasion to her, is “the” special occasion for whomever she’s working with.

While Nataliya has had a web presence on Etsy and other digital shops since 2006, her and her husband Don opened Lucia’s Sarto in January 2014 (located in Kansas City, Missouri, two blocks West of the Country Club Plaza). Their goal being to run an ethical business, paying a fair wage, positively impacting the community, and striving to provide clients a premium experience in bridal, one-of-a-kind custom designed clothing, and alterations.
