Launched in 2003, Camilla is the namesake label of designer and artist, Camilla Franks. Born in Sydney, Australia, Camilla Franks has carved a celebrated reputation as one of Australia's most loved fashion and lifestyle designers. With a background in theatre costume design, Camilla Frank's sense of free-spirited confidence and color defines her personal style. This provided the inspiration for her initial and incredibly successful kaftan collection, launched during the early stages of Camilla's theater career. Her freewheeling entrepreneurial and maverick sensibility led her to set up Camilla, where she applies her colorful, bohemian aesthetic to one-of-a-kind pieces.
Spirited and sophisticated, Camilla infuses her fashion with luxurious color and intricate embellishments. The heart of each Camilla collection is born from Mother Nature. Camilla's travels enable the discovery of cultures, artists and muses, all of which provide inspiration for her collections. The Camilla collections expand on themes from these travels, with added influence from independent spirits of iconic cultural muses such as Verushka, Talitha Getty, and Jade Jagger, along with Frieda Kahlo's unique artwork.
Camilla celebrates women, self-expression, beauty and individuality. This youthful Australian designer brings new life to the resortwear industry by bridging the gap between luxurious swimwear and relaxed beach attire. Glamour and playfulness are combined harmoniously through Camilla's use of stunning fabrics, shimmering details and vibrant colors. The success of the brand is derived from the philosophy that all women of all personalities and walks of life have the right to look and feel beautiful.
