Camilla and Marc is a high-end contemporary luxury women’s clothing brand from Sydney, Australia. The brand was born in a family-centred collab
The brand was launched in 2003 by Camilla Freeman Topper and her brother Marc Freeman. Luxurious fabrics, interesting prints, minute attention to detail and eclectic style features were the cornerstone principles of their brand. From day one, this was where they focused on differentiating their brand. Their quest to create expert tailoring with sophistication and expertise defined their styles to today.
Perfecting Perfection takes Expertise
Camilla Freeman Topper studied fashion at the Whitehouse institute of design. Her success at this institute earned her a scholarship to extend her studies at the Accademia Italiana Fine Arts University in Florence, Italy. There, she acquired the skills to construct garments with expertise and simplistic perfection.
On the other hand, Marc Freeman started out on a completely different path from his sister. Commerce and Engineering degrees ensured that he came equipped with the business skills required to launch and expand an international women’s fashion brand. These business skills have resulted in the successful launch of eleven Camilla and Marc boutiques across Australia, a successful online operation, and the expansion to several leading international departmental stores and boutiques. The brand is now available in the USA, UK, Europe and Asia.
As Strong & Stylish as Ever
Today the business is still a family-owned and run business. No stake has been sold, and the company is still managed similarly to how it began. Camilla Freeman Topper is the head designer for the brand, inspiring the direction and artistic inspiration of the clothing. Marc Freeman is the CEO and business strategy director for Camilla and Marc.
Simplistic yet Sophisticated
What sets Camilla and Marc apart from other high-end Australian Brands? The answer to this question is simple. Camilla and Marc have carved their niche as leaders in silhouettes of sleek, expertly crafted suits, blazers and tailored pieces. Their materials are very high-end, their styles simplistic yet sophisticated.
Giving back to the Community
Sustainability is on the top of every fashionista’s mind these days. Because of their high-quality workmanship, their longevity of product life and versatile sophistication, Camilla and Marc place the brand in a slow fashion category. Moreover, they support great causes for charity and scientific research. One of their recent campaigns is “Ovaries, Talk about them.” This campaign involved the sale of T-shirts, hats, totes and crew neck sweaters that support the cause of raising awareness of ovarian cancer and how it can be prevented.
What is admirable about the brand is that 100% of proceeds from the “ovaries lets talk about them” campaign supported Professor Caroline Ford and her team at Ovarian Cancer Research at the UNSW. On 11 April 2021, they raised $225K towards the cause.
