Natalie Balmain is a model and designer from England. She was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 20, and this was ultimately her inspiration behind her debut fashion line, Type 1 Clothing, designed to help people manage their multiple daily injections more easily and wear insulin pumps more comfortably. Natalie has raised money for JDRF, Diabetes UK and other clinical research trials over the years and continues to pledge 5% of the profits from Type 1 Clothing. She talks frequently on the BBC as a diabetes and fashion expert, and has featured in The Guardian, Balance magazine and more, as well as her own series of vlogs raising awareness and education around type 1 diabetes.

Natalie says "If I could tell people one thing that I wish they knew about Type 1 Diabetes, it is that it is unpreventable, un-curable and potentially fatal. It really upsets me that diabetes is still an acceptable topic for ridicule in the media, and it is one of the things that I am passionate about changing. I want to see Type 1s represented in the media for who we really are: athletes, models, authors, parents, bodybuilders, everyone! We are stronger than people realise."
