HighNotes Clothing collection was designed by Natasha Marin in collaboration with celebrity stylist/designer Melissa Laskin. One of the leading Hollywood stylists, Melissa Laskin has worked with the A-list of celebrities and media. She has been styling for clients George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Leo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchette, Keith Urban, Will Smith, Kate Winslet, Annie Lennox among many others and her work had been published in editorials in Vogue, Elle, W Magazine, In Style, Surface, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Glamour, GQ, LA Confidential and many more before launching her own label, elvislaskin, to fill the need for contemporary fashion for her celebrity clientele.

Natasha Marin, called by a well-known art critic Greg Sandow "a very fashion-forward poster child" for a new generation of classical musicians willing to break the boundaries of traditional classical performance format, has been collaborating with stylists and fashion designers to create her distinctive look for her performances, including her piano duo "DoubleSharp" that incorporated custom made costumes by Vera DeFehr as a part of artistic presentation.

The 2013 HighNotesCollection™ line introduces apparel featuring flattering and comfortable silky modal bodies with a musical twist that differentiates itself, all done in black and white, as a tribute to Natasha's passion for piano.

At the beginning of their collaboration Melissa was styling Natasha for concerts and red carpet events (which Natasha frequents with her husband, actor Cheech Marin), but their creative connection instantly went beyond it. The two felt like kindred spirits, working as a team and fusing art and music to create unique fashion pieces for Natasha's personal style. Melissa liked Natasha's involvement in the creative process and Natasha appreciated Melissa's expertise.

"It's like we were reading each others mind," Melissa said. "I know that Natasha and I have the same aesthetic and our taste level is exactly the same." "I’ve always had a strong sense of style," adds Natasha. "I had my input working with stylists and designers, making changes and customizing. But with Melissa we felt so in sync, that moving from creating looks to creating our own dresses and gowns happened naturally."

Their work was noticed, and responding to requests of friends, fans and family, Melissa and Natasha are making some of their collaborative designs available under the HighNotesCollection label. The HighNotes line will introduce apparel featuring flattering and comfortable silky modal bodies with a musical twist that differentiates itself,all done in black and white, as a tribute to Natasha's passion for piano. These pieces, as well as limited edition dresses (called HigherNotes) will be available through retail stores nationwide and online. Replicas of one-of-a-kind pieces (HighestNotes) created for Natasha's concerts and events are available by custom orders.
