As a native New Yorker, Camilla grew up in a world rich in modern culture and eternal beauty. Spending significant amounts of time in Newport, RI, to St. Moritz, Switzerland, her world has embodied a forgotten lifestyle of effortless taste, timeless fashion and has been filled with countless adventures.
Camilla launched CK Bradley in 1999 while she was still a senior at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. Tired of seeing everyone wear the same thing on campus, she started sewing colorful belts, totes and reversible ball skirts. Launching this accessories company that would go on to be known for bringing back the preppy ribbon belt, the company quickly expanded into apparel and everything lifestyle.
Since then, Camilla has had her line in several hundred boutiques across the country and abroad, and opened a few CK Bradley flagship stores as well over the years.
In 2011, CK Bradley as we know it closed its doors, and began a new chapter with Apres by CK Bradley - a retro ski apparel line for women who wanted fun, colorful and sassy outfits on the slopes.
Four years later, in September 2015, Camilla decided to relaunch her brand. Partnering with long time friend and former CK Bradley Director of Operations, Genevieve Rozansky, the pair successfully picked up right where they left off.
The CK Bradley Co-Pop Shop in Newport RI opened in 2016 to introduce the new CK Bradley line, and collaborate with other designers in a cooperative pop up - where CK Bradley stays year round and others 'pop up' here and there to keep offerings fresh and alluring.
The CK Bradley journey has been extraordinary and is far from over. These two plan on coloring your world with clothing and accessories for every occasion that will make you want to skip to work and turn heads along the way.
So get inspired and let these dresses make you alluring, confident and even more beautiful and sassy than you already are.
