Women in Business: Josie Natori, Founder and CEO of the Natori Company - Huffington Post
Josie Cruz Natori is founder and CEO of the Natori Company . Exemplifying her own mantra, she crossed continents, navigated varying careers, and surmounted countless obstacles to create a global brand, Natori. Under labels Josie Natori, Natori, Josie, and N Natori, the House of Natori extends through ready-to-wear, lingerie, home, bedding, fragrance, and accessories. At the age of 17, Ms. Natori left Manila to attend Manhattanville College to study Economics. She joined the corporate world, and eventually became the first female vice president of investment banking at Merrill Lynch. But ultimately she wanted to have her own business and a connection to her native Philippines. She fell into the idea of importing embroidered tops, which became the catalyst for a lingerie business that has grown into an iconic brand three decades later. Using an Asian aesthetic, Ms. Natori was able build a distinct brand, melding the visual appeals of both the East and the West. "I love my work, but success in fashion is not enough," says Ms. Natori, who sits on the boards of the Asian Cultural Council, the Orchestra of St. Luke's, and the Fashion and Design Council of the Philippines. She is also a member of the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) and the Committee of 200. She was presented with the Galleon Award in 1988 by then-President of the Republic of the Philippines, Corazon Aquino. She received the Lakandula Award, considered the highest honor for a Filipino citizen, and was recognized with the prestigious Humanitarian Award by Fashion Group International. How has your previous employment experience aided your tenure at the House of Natori. Working at Merrill Lynch where I was the first ever female Vice President of Investment Banking gave me invaluable analytical and negotiating experience. There aren't many of us in the rag trade that came from Wall Street, so I think my unique history works to my advantage.www.huffingtonpost.com

Also there were Marilen Tantoco, Rustan’s VP for Home and Merchandising, and Dina Tantoco, who heads Rustan’s marketing communications. In charge of the event, and congratulated for its success were Jaja Chiongbian-Rama and Claudine Chiongbian of BigSeed PR & Events.

Josie Natori: Style sensibilities - Inquirer.net
ELEGANT skirts and lingerie, kaftans and calligraphy printed tops, and bold brushstrokes with sharp colors make it to this season’s Spring Summer 2016 collection by the internationally-renowned fashion designer, Josie Natori. But what truly makes a Natori piece stand out is the femininity and power that the wearer exudes. In an evening dedicated to luxury fashion at Rustan’s Cebu and Gateway for Josie Natori’s namesake brand, the global style icon spared us a moment to talk about her philosophy on art as fashion and business. The soft-spoken 68-year-old designer told us of her father, Engineer Felipe F. Cruz’s humble beginnings, and now there’s a street in Mandaue City named after him. Josie also recalled receiving the prestigious Lakandula Award, which recognizes political and civic contributions for the Filipino people. From that fortunate incident with a buyer in Bloomingdale’s to the day Natori Company was born—Josie knew how to stand beautiful and successful. It takes hard work, good role models, and a good pair of well-tailored pants. The ease and sensibility is a Natori. It’s in the DNA of the brand, but you know, a collection evolves. What’s a signature Natori creation. Thirty-nine years is a long time and by now I think we have already defined the Natori signature. Our sense of color, the patterns, the east-west feeling, the details, the shapes, the embellishments… There’s an exoticness to it. So many different things you could say that it’s a Natori. What do you want the wearer to feel when she slips into one of your creations. Ultimately, when someone puts it on, I want her to feel good. That is definitely a Natori. But we stay true to what we are. I’d like to think we have our own sense of style. We’ve developed our sense of style and point of view through the years. It’s something that is right for the brand. I was in Wall Street for nine years, in investment banking. Although I’ve been an artist since I was four years old, I have never dreamt, not in a million years, to be in this business. It’s just a lucky great accident that all this marries my creative sense and my business head…My left brain and my right brain. That’s what I hoped we’d be able to create, and we’ve been able to create a brand. It’s marrying both the creative and the business. In music, I believe that you never play the same note twice ever. It continues to evolve, expand to other products and brands, collections. So without ideas you can’t really grow the business. The story goes that it all started with a buyer at Bloomingdale’s. And that’s how it started. I was in the right place at the right time. I ended up starting a business in the lingerie department, which I knew nothing about, but I approached it just like fashion. It has been a wonderful journey, and a tough one. In the journey, what lesson stuck with you the most. It’s part of the process, so it’s not really a mistake because you learn from it. It’s learning and moving on. Also, you have to.cebudailynews.inquirer.net
