Natalia is from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but chose Mexico as her home and her field of research. During her 'Production and Patterns' degree at SENAI/Cetiqt in Rio, much of her studies focused on arts and costume to complement her research on Frida Kahlo's clothes. She soon decided to enter a second degree in 'Costume Design and History of Arts' to study more about the Mexican muralist movement and modern art. In 2014 she officially moved to CDMX after finishing her final project on the Tehuantepec dress. While in Mexico, Natalia has worked as studio manager of Carla Fernandez, a Mexican artist and fashion designer, and has studied Mexican arts, history and literature. Alongside being a an expert guide at Context, she is pursuing an MA in History of Arts at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) where she is studying the clothing and style of Georgia O'Keeffe's, and comparing them with Kahlo's.
