Camelia Skikos is a fashion label based in San Francisco, founded by the designer who gives the brand its name.
After completing a degree in Fashion Design at the University of Art in Romania, Camelia Skikos moved to London where she further defined her fashion studies while working as a Fashion Illustrator and Designer for various British brands.
In 2003 Camelia relocated to San Francisco where she accepted a position as a head designer at Levi Strauss. While designing and consulting for different companies she was teaching Fashion Design at the Academy of Art University.
In 2010 Camelia Skikos launched her eponymous label and the following year she won the San Francisco Fashion Award for Best Women`s Wear Designer.
She continues to collaborate with prestigious brands while developing her brand as a creative playground to explore new aesthetic boundaries.
Camelia Skikos design philosophy stems from a continuing fascination with the way garments can make an impact on our lives, based on the unconscious relations between the human being and the garments we wear.
Using techniques involving geometric shapes, her designs come to dialogue with the human body resulting in a multidimensional effect of innovation, dynamism and a sophisticated sense of femininity with an edge.
All garments are designed and made in California, to ensure the highest environmental standards. They are produced in limited quantities and combine value with quality.
