Born in Denmark, Camilla Skovgaard began her career in women's couture in Dubai at the age of 20
when a French owned company brought her to the Gulf to design for the region's Sheikhs' wives and daughters.
After 7 years in Dubai Camilla moved to London in 2000 to study the craft of shoe making where her eponymous
shoe line took shape during her MA; Saks Fifth Avenue in the US bought her first collection while still a student.
Camilla Skovgaard shoes are gaining recognition for their aesthetic fluid-edged style combined with high quality
shoemaking. Her emphasis is on form, materials and style rather than decoration. The combination of contrasting
elements such as fluidity and severity, restraint and sophistication play an integral part in the character
of her design.
Camilla Skovgaard lives and works out of London, Dubai and Hong Kong.
