Featured Designer: Natalia Gemma


These expressive hand-painted designs by Natalia Gemma have my full admiration! Natalia has mastered the traditional floral and paisley yet her take on these subjects feels so fresh and current. Based in Los Angeles, CA, Natalia currently designs full-time for Lucky Brand Jeans as their Graphic Designer, producing artwork for women’s t-shirts and textile prints for the collections, and also works as a freelance Textile/Graphic Artist. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2012 with a BFA in Textile Design and has been freelancing and working at companies such as Free People, Pacsun, and now Lucky ever since. She also sells her artwork through multiple print studios and has two collections with Guildery. Natalia writes, “I love painting and drawing and do a lot of different types of work for different clients.” This year she has been working on extending her client base even further, and interested clients can reach out at www.nataliagemma.com. You can also follow Natalia on Instagram, tumblr or Pinterest.

Enjoy the weekend! -Chelsea
