Fashion Woven with Stories

Camilla Franks, founder of CAMILLA, shares a story with us on her most treasured fashion item - a kaftan, of course.

I have a particular kaftan that has journeyed many a country and explored many a temple with me, searching for enlightenment and inner peace. I spend a lot of time in India, travelling to visit our CAMILLA factory there. It’s my home away from home and a source of endless inspiration. My spiritual side flies high when I’m in India. I feel connected to the people, the culture, the food, the chaos and the peace, so I am very grateful that we can create our CAMILLA pieces there.

I celebrated my 38th birthday wearing this kaftan. I woke up and had a peaceful morning meditation followed by a day of work and a birthday dinner feast with Jaggi, our factory owner, and my design team. It was magic.

Another standout moment in this kaftan was when I travelled to Mexico, fulfilling a lifelong dream of visiting The Blue House – Frida Kahlo’s home. I have been influenced creatively by Frida Kahlo for as long as I can remember, so visiting her home was an amazing experience. I hope that I continue to be blessed with more travels and discoveries of the world, people, and myself while wearing this piece.
