This Week in Fashion: Local Designer Camelia Skikos Fall/Winter 2011 Collection + Sunday Fashion Show
Camelia Skikos' latest collection, "Out of the Blue" showcases her signature cut-out overlays and geometric lines, but this time with sharp doses of blue, cream and black.
The SF-based designer studied fashion design in Europe before making her way to the Bay in 2003, to be the head designer at Levi's. Skikos' is now focused on her own line (which is 100% made in California), but also teaches fashion at the Academy of Art University.
