A split-brained Gemini who's happiest juggling her multiple interests, Nathalie-Roze has worn many professional hats, including that of freelance arts journalist, published poet, arts therapist, costume designer, creative writing instructor, teacher and communications specialist. She's had the entrepreneurial bug, since street-vending her first line of jewellery at age 15.
In addition to her designing duties, Nathalie-Roze writes DIY Style for the Toronto Star's Fashion section, a how-to column re: making crafty-cool wearables. She also writes the popular Frugal Fashionista columns for Metro News, which keep over half a million readers in the bargain loop every week. Read her retail therapy tips on-line at: www.metronews.ca.
Nathalie-Roze can be found most days in her Leslieville shop/studio/office - either assisting customers, sewing or teaching in the studio or madly typing up one of her columns.
