Tata-Naka is the name of the label started by identical twins Tamara and Natasha Surguladze. They were born in Tbilisi, Georgia, USSR, in 1978. In 1992, they went to school in Switzerland and then came to London in 1996 and studied fashion at Central St. Martins, graduating in 2000.
They started up their label immediately, and in three years have taken their collections to international cult status. Natasha focuses on cut and construction, while Tamara is the more decorative twin, reflecting on the beauty found and the curious mixture of modernity and reminiscence so admired in their clothes.
They have taken part in London fashion week every season.
