Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Nadia Tayeh is an accomplished artist, who has worked over fourteen seasons backstage at New York Fashion Week for designers including Balmain, Michael Kors, Oscar De La Renta, Carolina Herrera, Jeremy Scott and many more.
Nadia Tayeh was shaped by the many different cultures that made up her world coming from the diverse environs of Downtown Brooklyn. Her exposure to different cultures allowed her to take in the differences in style each beautiful culture produced. This heightened Nadia’s love for fashion and beauty, and at a young age she became obsessed with the world of fashion and design, spending hours watching runway shows on E! Network. Not only observing the clothes and makeup of the models, but trying to discern the unique story the designers were trying to convey. Being the creative type, Nadia earned a Bachelor's Degree in Film at Brooklyn College. She wrote and directed her first undergraduate short film which was screened at BAM theater in Brooklyn, winning "Best Producer". Nadia's work in film lead her to rediscover her love for makeup where she began to do the makeup of characters on film and video sets. She was able to not only apply the necessary makeup to characters but align their looks to the story being told. A skill that has stuck with her throughout her career, never just applying makeup, but always seeking to bring out the story behind every one of her client's face.
Never the complacent type, Nadia continues to develop her art, seeking inspiration from various art mediums and using them to push her vision forward, to not only stay on-top of current trends, but to set them herself.
