Maternity Wear from Antwerp
Already at a young age, Nathalie VleeSchouwer knew exactly what she wanted to do for a living: creating comfortable fashion that flatters pregnant women instead of disguising them unfavorably.
In 1990, the Belgian designer launched her own label: Fragile. Far away from tent-shaped dresses and old-fashioned garments to trendy fashion, that skillfully wraps the mom’s belly. Today, a team of about 40 employees creates clothing for pregnant women under the company name “The Natale Company”.
Fair production, the reduction of the ecological footprint and keeping as many production steps in Belgium as possible are the focus of Fragile. Under the aspect “The pregnancy is a very special phase” Nathalie creates Fragile Maternity Wear, which allows to enjoy this time consciously.
Elegant maternity wear from Austria
You have an invitation for a dinner or some glamorous event? And you are pregnant? Slacks & Co. designs tasteful Maternity Wear for the special occasion. About eight years ago, designer Tara Meran and tailor Edward Sexton created their first look: tailored trousers that perfectly fit the growing silhouette.
The first Slacks & Co. collection was born during Tara’s own first pregnancy. Today the Austrian brand is established in the international maternity wear market and Tara’s family grew to four children. Slacks & Co. understands what pregnant women really want. Together with Claire Hoyos, mother of two, the team creates stylish looks that make expectant mothers shine.
