Com­pro­mis­ing com­fort over style was never an is­sue for New York- based de­signer Josie Na­tori. Born and raised in the Philip­pines, she un­der­stands the woes of ev­ery stylish woman in need of wearable cloth­ing per­fect for the trop­i­cal weather. Rus­tan’s brought N Na­tori and its ar­ray of loungewear and caf­tans per­fect for the change in weather. Last March 12, Josie Na­tori’s SS15 col­lec­tion and the brand was launched at Shangri- La’s Mac­tan Re­sort and Spa.

The is­land-inspired col­lec­tion show­cased Na­tori’s pas­sion for the ex­otic is­land life with pieces rang­ing from muted pal­ettes to bold tribal prints, soft is­land el­e­ments to ex­otic flo­rals and geo­met­rics. When the mod­els swept the run­way, Josie Na­tori re­ceived bou­quets of flow­ers from the Rus­tan Group of Com­pa­nies chair­man emer­i­tus Am­bas­sador Bien­venido R. Tan­toco Sr., to­gether with RGC pres­i­dent Don­nie V. Tan­toco, and Rus­tan’s VP of home mer­chan­dis­ing Mar­ilen R. Tan­toco.

The fol­low­ing day, Josie Na­tori con­ducted a styling ac­tiv­ity at Rus­tan’s Cebu where she styled N Na­tori’s first cus­tomers her­self.
