The clothing label Tata Naka was founded by Georgia-born, London-based identical twin sisters, Tamara and Natasha Surguladze, in memory of their collective childhood nickname. Born in 1978 Georgia in the city of Tbilisi, the sisters moved in 1996 to London where they graduated from Central St. Martin’s and started their label.Since then the twins have been awarded the British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN Award 3 times in a row. Tamara and Natasha now have three lines – Tata Naka, Stolen Memories and Tata Naka Shrunk.
Tribal arts and African culture inspired the bright colours and patterned fabrics in this soulful Tata Naka AW 2012 collection, whilst the styling was a reference to Motown artists such as Diana Ross and the Supremes. Loose, flowing dresses printed in the designers’ own paintings came in bright terracotta and lavender tones. The accessories were a re-interpretation of Malawi bracelets and necklines, featuring thick, bold coloured tubes and diamantes.
I would emphasize high-creepers also, which is chic of this season. TN creepers seems to be very cool.
