Camilla seem to be design close to the edge some what like Rick Owens or Gareth Pugh, perhaps their common thread is that the view the world in a very different light and that is what removes the three of them from the house of mediocre. It allows for outstanding designs its inherit within their DNA to be bold, creative and capture people attention this innate ability not to be scared about the peoples perception just know exactly what the like and curve out products that are very unique.
