Natasha Lau

Main­land China

Philippine Tatler - - FEATURES -

Natasha Lau wasn’t your av­er­age child. Rather than watch car­toons or play games with her friends, she spent her girl­hood flick­ing through fash­ion mag­a­zines, try­ing on dresses, and ac­com­pa­ny­ing her mother to the world’s glossi­est cat­walk shows. And the in­tense love of cloth­ing she de­vel­oped has now paid off in the form of a daz­zling ca­reer in the fash­ion in­dus­try. The In­sta­gram star has col­lab­o­rated on a num­ber of col­lec­tions and walked for some of the big­gest brands of China and Europe.

Natasha splits her time be­tween Shang­hai, where she works as a model and stylist, and New York, where she is study­ing at art school Par­sons. “I pre­fer Shang­hai some­how. I’m more Euro­pean in my style. I like quite a sim­ple and chill life.”

Along with all the de­sign­ers who helped launch her ca­reer, she cred­its one per­son in par­tic­u­lar for her prodi­gious suc­cess. “My mum is my life. She’s al­ways per­fect and I’m still not ex­actly sure what I want to do with my life. I would like to be an ac­tress, but I don’t want to rush into it and my mum al­ways knows what to say—telling me to take each day as it comes and go step by step un­til I find my path.”
