Josie Natori is the founder and chief executive officer of the Natori Company, a US$500-million New York-based corporation dealing with the design and manufacture of women's fashion and accessories.

Josie Natori

In 1977, with no experience in fashion and manufacturing, she began her fashion empire selling hand-embroidered nightshirts at Bloomingdale's. She worked out of her living room at first, then eventually set up her first design shop cum showroom from an 11,000 square-foot loft on 34th Street. She went full scale into designing and manufacturing lingerie and quickly became known for the signature detailing, embroidery and applique work which she brought from her native Philippines to the international market.
