The Badwood Story
Born & raised in Los Angeles, Natalie Wood is a young street wear designer, fine artist & lifestyle boss.
Nat had just celebrated her 20th birthday prior to launching her street wear line in February of 2013. From humble beginnings as a one-woman-operation printing in her parents’ garage, production soon expanded beyond her solo capability. Still, she’s committed to personally screen printing all of the Limited Edition Flannels, and is hands on with her limited edition collections.
Anticipating a promising career in SPFX make-up, her instructor/mentor pleaded for her to hold off on entering the movie industry- until she allowed herself the space to apply her artistry and vision across multiple formats. Expanding on that thought, Natalie headed to the streets of Miami where she gained a working knowledge in street art. Her instagram was originally posts of her artwork, but then she started spray painting her iconic ski mask logo onto her personal clothing. Her followers wanted them available for purchase and that's when she decided to learn how to screen print clothing by herself. Soon after, Natalie was receiving phone calls to do artwork on set for various hip-hop videos & to be “Blasted by Badwood” (in the form of her “Sharpie® tattoos) is an honor and frequent request of notable celebrities.

“Badwood” the individual is defining a lifestyle among her peers which may be followed in realtime on social media @badwood. Her brand continues to flow with her personal interests. She is awestruck by the growing number of loyalists who follow her commentary and support her imagery of the iconic Badwood Ski Mask.
She has now collaborated with multiple well-known brands including G-Pen, Supra Footwear, & Dixxon Flannel Co.
