Lebanese designer Nathalie Trad wore a giant stone to the 2014 Grazia Style Awards.Born in Beirut but raised in Dubai, Trad, 27, opened her self-titled accessories brand one year ago exactly, launching a collection modeled after the minutia found in nature.Trad's overnight success, so to speak, is unusual, particularly in this region, where support for young designers still leaves a lot to be desired.Before moving back to Dubai, Trad studied fashion and business, first at ESMOD Paris and then at Parsons the New School for Design in New York City, where she also worked with then-rising designer Proenza Schouler.Trad got hands-on experience in accessory design at Proenza. It was also in New York that Trad came upon her personal design credo: deconstructing forms from nature into avant garde accessories.
