Camelia Skikos was inspired by her first experiments with fashion as a teenager living in communist Romania. Skikos would modify and transform her school uniform as a way to evade restrictions and uniformity. With sharp form and strong silhouettes, this collection combines figurative elements with defining colors from Klein’s art installations. Skikos features interchangeable shrugs and harnesses, for a unique take on versatility.
Based out of San Francisco, Skikos designs and makes all of the garments in California. She completed a degree in Fashion Design at the University of Art in Romania. Her extensive background in fashion includes a position as head designer at Levi Strauss, GAP, and an educator at the Academy of Art University.With a design philosophy that stems from a unique fascination for the human body that translates into a multidimensional effect of innovation, dynamism, and a sophisticated sense of femininity with an edgy appeal.
