Camilla Stærk

Camilla Stærk is the brilliant designer behind STÆRK, a collection that has made a major impression on the fashion industry. Recently, Academy Award Nominee Karen O wore a Stærk custom gown to the 2014 Oscars and was voted by Vogue as one of the best dressed celebrities at the awards. In addition, i-D, Vogue, GQ, and Interview Magazines all featured the collection's menswear and womenswear designs, as well as its accessories. Camilla, originally from Denmark, has been recognized with numerous awards and she's contributed to major collaborations, working with ECCO, Eddie Borgo, Jen Tozer, Kopenhagen Fur, and more. In an article featuring Camilla in Rolling Stone, Camilla's described as a designer that "makes the sort of attenuated, shadowy attire that equally suggests a gothic interpretation of Coco Chanel's Black Swan-like elegance, the silhouettes of moody 40s cinema, and the razor-sharp heroines French New Wave music." We can't get enough of Camilla's dark aesthetic, and we know her career is one to watch. Read on for more on Camilla!
