Miami designer Natalya Toporova likes making strong fashion statements. Last week we showed you some of her swimsuit designs, modeled by some very lovely ladies [see here]. Besides getting to mingle with the bevy of beauties at the Skyline Fashion Show recently, we also had the chance to CYInterview Natalya. The rising designer is continuing to make a name for herself on the Miami fashion scene.
You can read some of the highlights or listen to the entire CYInterview below:

With all of her designs, including the swimsuits modeled at the Skyline Fashion show at the Viceroy Hotel, Ms. Toporova is all about standing out and being unique with her fashion vision:
“My inspiration really be, blends so easily in today’s society. So I want to make strong pieces that make everybody unique and stand out, quality piece that take you, separate you from the rest of this world… All my pieces are one of a kind. You’re not gonna, it’s not your average bikini; it’s very statement pieces. So it’s fashion swimwear. That’s one thing that when you see me it’ll be fashion swimwear and, hopefully, I’ll see you on the beach wearing them.”
Natalya’s main goal is to get her designs into a store near you. When it comes to any aspiring fashion designer, who dreams of being the next Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Vera Wang or Tommy Hilfiger, she has advice that rings true for anyone with a dream; the notion that the dream can become a reality over time:
“It’s a lot of hard work and you need a lot of patience and you have to keep trying, keep trying, keep trying keep trying. Don’t give up. So if you want to be in the industry, you have to work really, really hard.”
We’ve told you about Natalya’s swimsuit designs, but not how we came to know this up and coming designer. CYInterview friend Mya wore a sexy little dress designed by Ms. Toporova, when we hung out with the superstar back in April [see here]. The designer talks a little about that experience, as well as her dresses.
“I got a chance to work with an amazing stylist Leon Frager and he introduced me to Mya and she loved my style and she looked amazing in it and I really made her pop, the style, the cut, you know everything about the dress. So that’s one thing people love who buy my dresses, they’re different and the fit, the femininity and the classiness is very important in my style of design.”
