The brand CAMILLE DE DAMPIERRE is a family story that started in January 2010 when two Parisian sisters, Laurence and Camille, got together enlightened with the idea of creating a fashion brand. Together they transmit their talent, their universe and their common perception of fashion that can be summed up in the words: elegance, liveliness, timelessness and eclecticism.
The strength of the project comes from the contradictive yet complementary personalities of the two sisters. Camille is the artistic director while Laurence manages the brand and its development. Camille studied fashion design at Saint Martins School (London), after which she continued at Istituto Marangoni (Milan) while finishing her studies at Studio Berçot (Paris).
The combination of enthusiasm and hard work provides the brand a position on the feminine ready to wear market with a known success of the Summer/Spring 2011 collection that was present within several countries. The Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 collection confirmed the promising establishment of the brand on the market that will be further strengthened by the upcoming Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Camille and Laurence live and work in Le Marais, a Parisian neighborhood where creativity strives and where they are located in the midst of fashion and creation.
CAMILLE DE DAMPIERRE emerges as a fashion brand that fuses art, simplicity and femininity. The brand is differentiated as a result of the willingness of the designer to transmit her vision of the world into every piece by absorbing the artistry that surrounds her. Camille likes to play with contradictions: comfort versus sexiness, informality versus style, eternity versus modernity, conventional versus risky. As a result the brand can connect with the ambivalent mind of women and provides garments adaptable to every moment of the day. With a strong identity, the brand proposes a lifestyle, a soul and an innate sense of style.
Camille’s creativity is always on the alert and it is with passion that she creates strong and original collections, without leaving anything to chance. The careful choice of fabrics, the innovative cuts and the attention to detail makes every piece into a unique item. Simple pieces are designed through a renewing and personal approach with the intention of accentuating the modern woman. Camille creates lively fashion inspired by her experiences, her travels and her imagination. The brand reflects romanticism, femininity, eclecticism, beauty and refinement while enlightening the beauty of the contemporary woman.
