Naya Rea is London based, raised in Siberia with a ‘Trans-Siberian’ fashion journey beginning after her interior design studies in her home town of Novosibirsk. Following a move to Moscow, Naya decided to open a vintage and second hand store in Moscow, soon to become the go-to destination for women looking for something different and quirky. Interest turned to adoration for this modern woman. A female looking to stand out from the crowds, yet contain a sense of value for a better life. Naya began to examine a contemporary woman’s ability to maintain strength and poise – this juxtaposing sensuality and a woman’s sense of vulnerability.
During Naya’s time in Moscow, she worked with an artist to create her first capsule collection. This showcase of talent earnt a place in the final of MTV Russia fashion competition ‘Ticket to Life’ (‘Putevka v jizn’) and such recognition pushed Naya to apply to London College of Fashion.
In September 2015 her namesake brand was born.
