Camelia Skikos is a conceptual womenswear brand based in San Francisco and launched in 2010 by the Romanian designer who gives the brand its name.
While developing her brand as a creative playground to explore new aesthetic boundaries Camelia is continuing to consult for other fashion and tech companies as well. Since 2014 she is consulting for Google on wearable technology designing smart garments using interactive textile.
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.
Comprehending metaphysics of the form and its antipode, volumes and silhouettes, surfaces and voids, contours and texture, 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.
Designing everything at her San Francisco studio, Camelia Skikos ideology stands for consciousness and humanity. All garments are made of cruelty-free materials. In an effort to maintain a small environmental footprint, the entire collections are manufactured locally in limited quantities and combine value with quality.
