Josie Natori in Hammerman JewelsJosie Natori

Mrs Kenneth Natori traded a career in finance for a career that appeals to the senses: she is president of Natori Lingerie, Natori Couture and Evening Wear, and Natori Accessories. Josie may be a no-nonsense power in the business world, but she’s all woman as well, and both facets of her personality are revealed in her choice of charities. Born into a philanthropic family in the Philippines, she serves on the board of the Philippine American Foundation, which works for the alleviation of poverty in the Philippines through self-help programs, rural healthcare and education; she also donates her time to the New York Botanical Garden, which raises consciousness about all the world’s environments as it beautifies an urban one. Josie’s affinity for the world of nature is reflected in this diamond jewelry from Hammerman Bros. and in a fine floral bustier and evening coat from her own elegant collection of designs.
