About CAMILLA: Fall 2016: Jambo, Jambo!:
Says Camilla Franks, “Africa truly awakened me. The vibrancy of color, the beauty of the land, and the spirit of the people. I found inner peace in the arms of the tribeswomen, and was transfixed by the bohemian melting pot of Morocco. This collection is an expression of the love and light I felt during my time in this stunning part of the world. A true celebration of life.” Styles include women’s collection, swim, cushions and accessories. For more information, please visit www.camilla.com.au
