Camilla Franks, THE Kaftan Queen, launched her colourful, playful and luxurious label CAMILLA seven years ago as a progression from her theatre career where she made her own flamboyant costumes for her characters, so in-demand by admirers that she decided to launch her own label.
Camilla’s signature colourful graphic prints and free flowing designs, stunning silks and signature beading are the core focus of the designer’s individuality and popularity. From the humble kaftan, Camilla’s designs have expanded from beach and resort fashion to ready-to-wear collections including maxi dresses, drawstring dresses, capes, reversible coats, playsuits, camisoles, and leggings.
Camilla’s unique design philosophy that “All women have the right to look and feel beautiful no matter their age, colour, size or origin” is a testament to the brand’s popularity. “I design for all shapes and sizes – all personalities and walks of life – I just want to make women look and feel beautiful whether it’s in a figure-hugging micro mini or a lavishly bejeweled cocktail dress”.
With an ever growing list of celebrity fans including Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Lily Allen, Kate Hudson, Kim Cattrall, Fergie, and Gwen Stefani all embracing her creations, Camilla creates feel-good clothes for all women.
