Meet The Capo-Nata Team
Natascha Hopkins – Owner/Creator
Natascha Hopkins, originally from Worms, Germany is a professional stuntwoman/actress and the founder/designer of Capo-Nata Apparel. From recently doubling Halle Berry in her hit series Extant, and Kerry Washington on Scandal, Jada Pinkett Smith on Gotham, Natascha has been a busy lady. She not only also spent 6 months in West Africa doubling Zoe Krativz on the highly anticipated franchise Mad Max 4: Road Fury, but also doubled Zoe on Divergent and Insurgent. She has worked on numerous blockbuster hits including Transformers 1 and 3, Spiderman 3, Ironman, After Earth and Django. She is most known from her acting/stunt role “Vixen” in the comedy hit Paul Blart:Mall Cop. Natascha loves being on set, however she found another passion when she realized there was a void in the active-wear market. She designed and was granted a Utility Patent on the Lean Body Sports Bra, which integrates a waist trimmer and a supportive sports bra to secure the bust for all body types of women (and soon men). And now, Natascha and her team have an entire distinct collection of active-wear which has birthed Capo-Nata, meaning Born Leader in Italian.
Natascha earned her B.A. from Texas Woman’s University where she became an All American gymnast and Captain for the team, won a National Championship and the Jo Khann Leadership Award, and was an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.

Founder Natascha Hopkins grew up knowing Dorothy Grant as her grandmother. Not one family celebration passed without “Gramma Dot” spreading her laughter, joy, and her memorable sense of humor. Dorothy Grant was a trailblazer in many ways and contributed to her community on such an enormous level that the Dorothy Grant Elementary School was named in her honor.
Capo-Nata understands the value of community service and will be donating to the Dorothy Grant Elementary School in Fontana, Ca. For every Lean Body Sports Bra purchased, $1 will be reserved so at the end of each semester, Capo-Nata will donate healthy foods and educate the children on nutrition and fitness. Check in on our site and social media for updates, videos and pictures on our school visits.
If you would like to donate directly, please email DonateToDGES@Capo-Nata.com and we will be happy to prompt you through the process.
We are big believers in education and we encourage you to support your local schools too.
Sometimes it feels better to give, than to receive.
