"In Character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Growing up in Houston, Texas, Camille was exposed to the arts at a very young age. Her mother’s involvement in Houston’s burgeoning art scene set the stage for Camille’s future creative freedom. "I remember spending evenings running through Ernesto Neto mazes and attending gallery openings with Jenny Holzer and Robert Raushenberg. It gave me that wonderful sense that anything could be possible," she reflects.
Meanwhile, her father, a successful entrepreneur, encouraged her to be fearless and follow her own path into the fashion industry. Years and numerous internships later, Camille moved to New York City where she began working for top design houses (Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Rebecca Minkoff) and talented stylists (Christine de Lassus, Kate Lanphear, Sarah Gore Reeves). Each experience and each personality left their own indelible influence on her work. The result of those experiences are evident in the launch of Camille Zarsky Handbags.
The beautifully articulated collection fuses inspiration from her travels as a fashion stylist with her artistic childhood roots growing up in the Lone Star State.
Camille combines her love of exotic skins with a passion for transcendent design in every collection. Camille Zarsky Handbags feature only the finest European materials and are handcrafted by artisans in New York City. Camille Zarsky Handbags are true American luxury designs. .
