On Tuesday 19th, The National Portrait Gallery welcomed another art form to stand alongside their historical collection.
Tata Naka designers, Tamara and Natasha Surguladze, presented their vintage-inspired SS18 womenswear collection on the third floor of The National Portrait Gallery; a presentation which sat easily amongst the grandeur of its setting.
The Tata Naka SS18 collection saw seasonal summer stripes and vintage florals in contrasting aubergine and daffodil hues; high-waisted tailoring and wide collars gave the collection a retro-feel while the addition of side slits and bare-shoulder necklines remained in-keeping with forecast Spring/Summer trends.
The styling was done to artistic perfection. Dark lipstick and a reflective sheen to the contouring, giving the models an artificial quality - real-life portraits of modern-vintage dress.
