Detroit’s Camille Jeanay is a woman on a mission: to become a force in the fashion world. At only 13, she began selling her own hand-constructed garments, and was named Detroit’s best young designer at 18. Camille has also started a handful of non-profits to give back to the city. On top of all of that, she designs inspired, wearable clothing for Camille Jeanay Clothing Company. “My work is fun, edgy, sexy and vibrant,” Camille says. “My pieces have life to them; they’re for women who are not only trendsetters but are confident with themselves.” Camille Jeanay Clothing Company designs ready-to-wear, evening wear, gowns and swimwear, and does private commissions. “My inspiration comes from many of my favorite colors. You will see lots of prints and colors such as pink, purple and white,” she says. For her Providence debut, Camille will be showing Safari Ablaze, a fun, vibrant collection that utilizes animal prints in unexpected ways. “The collection will be easy to transition from those cool spring nights to all those hot summer days,” she describes. “My theme is to just bring fun, life, vibrance and sexiness to the runway. Expect to be amazed!” Camille Jeanay will be presenting at 8pm on Wednesday, August 29 at the Providence Biltmore.
