Tata-Naka is designed by two identical twins. Tamara and Natasha Surguladze born in Tbilisi, Georgia, 1978. Tata and Naka respectively, were thier childhood nicknames, but many of their friends were unable to tell them appart and they became collectively reffered to as Tata - Naka. They came to London in 1996 to study at Central St.Partins, graduating from the Fashion Design and Marketing course in the year 2000: but it is their childhood memories and the rich heritage of their home country that is consistently their shared inspiration.
To the girls, Georgia envokes nostalgia and fantasy: memories of the faded rose print wall in their drandma's sitting room: a special place and time, once grand beautiful, now the remains of past splendour. The label Tata-Naka officially comes in two parts. Stolen Memories' designed by Tata and 'Tata-Naka' designed by Naka.
