After obtaining her fashion design degree from Institut Supérieur des Arts Appliqués, and her masters in fashion product development at École Supérieure de l’Industrie du Vêtement, Camille Enrico worked for 5 years as a buyer and as a fashion designer for Tara Jarmon in Paris. As she left her job to travel around the world, the idea of starting her own jewelry line became obvious. Camille combines different styles and conflicting universes. She gets her creativity from a little bit of everywhere, but mainly elsewhere… The spirit of her brand is inspired by her travels and the diverse cultures she came across and ultimately combined with one another to develop a genuinely inventive line.
5 questions to the designer
Who are you?
A jewelry designer, a Parisian woman, a young entrepreneur… After my BA studies in fashion and my master’s degree at École Supérieure de l’Industrie du Vêtement, I worked for five years at Tara Jarmon. Then one day I decided to leave everything behind and travel for a year around the world, following some uncontrollable wanderlust… When I came back three and a half years ago, I decided to start my own jewelry line.
Give us 3 words that describe your universe.
Multicultural, urban, colorful and one more: wild.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Each of my collections is inspired by a trip, a people, an encounter, a landscape… Then I try to mix these influences with my own references. Art deco graphics, a 1930s object, Inca symbols, etc. That allows me to enrich my collections as much as possible and offer products that are inventive, unexpected, and vibrating with color.
Where do you make your creations?
In France. I design each piece on Illustrator, then I send the drawings to my manufacturer who processes them in a machine that works directly on brass plates (chemical engraving, laser, polishing). Each piece is then sent to a Parisian gilder who does the gold electroplating, and finally hand-embroidered in our Parisian shop and Place du Marché St Honoré - 3 impasse Gomboust in the 1st arrondissement. Each piece is thus unique.
“Made in France”: why that choice?
To be able to control each step of the manufacturing process and work with French craftsmen, so as to offer top quality, tailor-made products.
