Natasha Zinko is a London based jewellery and ready-to-wear designer. She is a graduate of Central St Martin’s, where she studied Jewellery Design. She will show on-schedule at London Fashion Week as of September 2015.
Originally from the Ukraine, after undergoing a degree in Law Zinko moved to London to undertake an Art & Design Foundation at Chelsea College of Arts in 2006.
One of the most talked-about young labels in London, the brand has undergone an impressive trajectory – what began with Zinko designing pieces ad-hoc in response to requests from close friends now sees the collections carried globally in the finest luxury stores.
Zinko’s free-spirited, whimsical ready-to-wear collections honour the codes of the finest craftsmanship and are created entirely in her London atelier. Playful use of colour, volume and proportions is key; Zinko’s talent for highlighting the female form in unexpected ways sees boldly sculptural pieces executed in luxurious fabrics.
Zinko’s fine jewellery is a play on symbols, familiar or proverbial, but given a new translation. Icons such as skulls and skeletons, crosses, angel wings, cobwebs, hearts, and the evil eye; to name a few; are reworked on gold and precious stones.
Natasha Zinko opened her flagship boutique in 2011 in the heart of Mayfair on Maddox Street.
