Dim light, dark walls, beautiful laces – entering into Natalie Capell’s whimsical atelier in EL Born brings you back to the 20ies.

Since 2002 this Catalan-Israeli lady creates feminine dresses embellished with beautiful embroideries – all tailored, stitched and dyed by hand.

Natalie was born in Haifa and studied at the Shenkar design college in Tel Aviv (the very best!). Her main inspiration: Women’s liberation and emancipation. This might be the reason, why there are no fixed sizes on her dresses. When it comes to materials, Natalie seems to have a penchant for France:  Most of her laces, silk and tulle-fabrics and even her needles are French.
