Nativa Richard was the muse for her husband, photographer Yva Richard, who’s name was deducted from Natyva. (It is believed the name for Yva Richard’s Company was inspired by Nativa, who’s real name was Natyva. )
She was a seamstress and most likely responsible for the idea of creating and selling fetish lingerie and accessories via La Lingerie Moderne. It is said Native must have been a exhibitionist (due to her posing). I am not sure about this, perhaps she was more of an idealist who wanted their products to be presented in the most perfect way, who better to pose in their own products then she herself?
It seems she also used pseudonyms like Helios and Miss Milado.
