British designer Camilla Elphick launched her label in 2014, driven by a lifelong passion for shoes and a firm belief that good footwear makes a lasting impression. Camilla cites New York as a key source of inspiration. It was there that she designed her first shoe, while studying at Parsons and living in the vibrant East Village. She then moved back to London, graduating from Cordwainers at the London College of Fashion and working under industry-leading shoe designers including Paul Andrew, Nicholas Kirkwood and Charlotte Olympia.
The highly original and playful designs of her debut collection at London Fashion Week won her critical acclaim among fashion insiders. At the core of the Camilla Elphick brand’s continuing success are mood-boosting and desirable shoes – and an all-female creative team. The brand is defined by distinctive eye-catching silhouettes and small style details such as witty motifs and heels which spark conversations. These are shoes that are truly cherished and adored – shoes that make you smile!
The Camilla Elphick collection focuses on luxurious premium, ethically sourced materials and bespoke prints, hand-made and produced in Europe. The company now has global distribution to exclusive retailers including Selfridges, Aïshti, Luisa Via Roma, Level Shoe District, and Harvey Nichols HK. The brand’s signature Silver Lining boots and Pez heels have become favourites of fashion influencers such as Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller, Pandora Sykes and The Man Repeller. Camilla Elphick collections have have been featured in international publications including Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Tatler, Elle, Marie Claire, Refinery29.
Camilla Elphick was awarded the Walpole Brands of Tomorrow Award 2017, Boden x British Fashion Council’s Future British Award 2016 and Positive Luxury’s Butterfly Mark, rewarding the business’s commitment to sustainability.
