Natasha Stuart~ Director of European Partnerships

Scouted at seventeen by Sarah Doukas of Storm, the woman responsible for discovering Kate Moss, Natasha went on to model professionally for over two decades. When she wasn’t in front of the camera, Natasha would work her magic as a stylist whilst setting the pace as a personal trainer and running coach. In 2012 Natasha single-handedly launched Miss Matahari, one of the original sports luxe brands to hit the European market, winning her the title of ‘Woman to Watch’ at the Woman of the Year Awards in the UK. With a strong focus on the conscious consumer, Miss Matahari released a new sustainable collection across the pond during TIFF, with many actresses taking to the red carpet in her designs. Never afraid to take on a new challenge, Natasha brought together a group of creatives in 2020 to shoot, ‘Elements’, a fashion film for Miss Matahari, underlining the brand’s philosophy of female empowerment and the importance of fashion labels to work in harmony with Mother Nature. ‘Elements’ made official selection in several film festivals, including RIFFF and The Chic & Cool in Venice and won ‘Best Fashion Short Film’ in the New York International Women Festival. Natasha brings a wealth of experience to her role as Director of European Partnerships.

A passionate writer, Natasha has also contributed to many high-end publications over the years and currently writes engaging features for HIP Hotels, one of the original luxury travel magazines.
