Natasha is one of Milan’s superstars ! She does PR for Dolce & Gabbana and masterfully organizes every year the most lavish party of the Milan Fashion Week. Everybody knows this working girl with a British accent who lives by night and works all day. She’s tireless, busy as a bee and still finds time to write her own blog, produce a show called In Bed with Natasha where she interviews people in her bed, and to talk to us about her life.
Natasha,which part of the house do you feel most comfortable ?
I love every room, even if I probably spend most of the time in my office, which is right next to my living room. However when I find myself alone in my house, which is a rare occasion what with children running around, my nanny and 2 assistants, I really love to sit on my chesterfield sofa right by the balcony, it’s full of sunlight and very peaceful.
What is the best moment of the day ?
The morning, if I didn’t have a late night I really love waking up early in the morning and going down to buy brioche at my local patisserie. I usually wake up early on Sunday morning, I love walking down a sunny empty street. I also love early evening, especially when I don’t have to attend or work at an event, it’s such a treat for me to be able to relax with a little walk around my neighbourhood. So much of my work commitments are throughout the day and the night, that my private moments are early morning or early evening, I love the simplicity of the first sunshine, or sunset.
When are you going when you are looking for furniture for your home ?
When you work all day in front of a computer, you tend to search for a lot of stuff on-line, I buy from the Finnish Design Shop www.finnishdesignshop.it
Witch artists you’re most inspired by ?
Francis Bacon, Donald Judd, Georgia O’keffe, each one of them represent the various sides to my personality….there are however many more that I love such as Yayoi Kusama, and Henry Moore, I do love photographers such as Herb Ritts, and Ryan McGinley who I met before he became famous.
La marque que tu ne quittes jamais ?
Là maintenant, tout de suite, c’est Dolce&Gabbana, car depuis que je travaille avec eux, j’ai la chance d’être tout proche de la collection. C’est assez inévitable de devenir accro. Chaque saisons Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana ne cessent de faire des vêtements qui me plaisent et me rendent folle. Ils savent tellement bien rendre la femme féminine.
Ton coup de coeur du moment ?
As-tu une devise ?
Make It Happen, c’est tatoué sur mon poignet gauche.
Quelle pièce de designer rêverais-tu de posséder un jour ?
Tout fait par Jonathan Adler ! il sait rendre une décoration d’intérieur si élégante.

Peux-tu me recommander un bon restaurant à Milan ?
Fioraio Bianchi, c’est un endroit exceptionnel à Milan, une pépite car il vends aussi des fleurs et le restaurant est en plein cœur de Brera. Les plats sont est excellents aussi.
