Camilla Elphick is a British shoe designer, whose feminine yet playful designs have garnered critical acclaim in just two seasons.
Camilla has worked under designers including Nicholas Kirkwood, Sophia Webster, Donna Karan, Paul Andrew and Charlotte Olympia. She attended Parsons, New York and Cordwainers in London, and her graduate shoe collection, ‘So Bad It’s Good’gained widespread attention from fashion editors with the ‘Pez’ shoe, prompting her to launch her eponymous label for SS15.
Handmade in Italy, Camilla’s designs are defined by a feminine yet playful aesthetic and focus on premium, ethically sourced materials and bespoke prints. Her signature silhouette features a sexy curve below the ankle, designed to elongate the leg. It was Camilla’s long-standing passion for shoes and firm belief that good shoes make a lasting first impression that prompted her to launch her namesake label.
For AW15, the designer puts a playful twist on the ever-deliberated British weather with a second collection entitled ‘Puuurfect Storm’. Featuring a range of elegant mid-heels, sky-high pumps, modern flats and cool-girl boots, each pair embodies Camilla’s ‘ladylike with a twist’ USP. There are also showstopping prints that have been specially created in collaboration with American artist Kent Christensen.
