Natane created a consciousness education for models that evolved into what is now Natane’s Lab. This work emerged from her prolific modeling career, in-depth transformational education and extensive theatrical training. The education consists of three impactful weekend long transformational workshops taught by legendary master teachers focused on Self-expression, Creativity and creating a Legacy worth living for. The work focuses on manifesting your whole being by igniting your ultimate calling and cause. We will dive into each person’s well of consciousness and innate creativity and have them take actions that are aligned with making their own unique difference in the world.

As a teenager, Calvin Klein relaunched her modeling career at the onset of the waif era. Throughout the 90’s, she had a prolific career shooting with Richard Avedon, Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Bruce Weber, Albert Watson, Steven Klein, and Mario Sorrenti. Her career took her all over the world to walk the runways of Calvin Klein, Chanel, Versace, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, and Ralph Lauren to name a few. She graced the pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, W Magazine, and Vanity Fair and has been featured in advertising campaigns for Dolce and Gabbana, The Gap, Levi’s, and beauty campaigns for Clinique, Shiseido, and Pantene.
