CAMILLA AND MARC – A Leading Light in Australian Fashion
Established in 2003 by brother and sister team Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman, CAMILLA AND MARC is an independent, family owned and run, Australian luxury fashion brand.
While Marc, who studied commerce and engineering, has the business end nailed, Camilla found her niche studying design at the Whitehouse Institute of Design in Sydney.
After graduation, she won a scholarship to attend the prestigious Accademia Italiana Arte Moda in Florence, Italy. This training not only stood her in good stead for planning ranges and structuring a collection, but it also deepened her passion for working with quality textiles and fine-tuned her training in advanced couturier techniques such as draping.
Philosophy and brand hallmarks
The CAMILLA AND MARC philosophy centres around offering high-end design and construction with a simplicity in design that allows the wearer to shine through. Its style has been described as masculine tailoring with feminine silhouettes. Vogue Australia defined the brand hallmarks as a combination of luxurious fabrics, colourful prints and eccentric details. CAMILLA AND MARC believes in great design that is transforming, striving to inspire their customers to be better, more confident versions of themselves, allowing them to live creatively and fully.
The CAMILLA AND MARC collections include:
- CAMILLA AND MARC Ready to Wear
- C & M CAMILLA AND MARC
- CAMILLA AND MARC Denim
- CAMILLA AND MARC Swim
- CAMILLA AND MARC Footwear
CAMILLA AND MARC has nine boutiques throughout Australia, an online business and works with an esteemed list of global department stores and premium boutiques directly in the USA, UK, Europe and Asia. Timeless, modern and tailored, often with something unexpected, CAMILLA AND MARC is a leading light of the Australian fashion industry with a view and a plan to lead tomorrow's generation.
