Blonde, young and full of energy. She is the Brazilian influencer, Londoner by adoption, Camila Carril who, after various collaborations with important brands, decided to pursue a career as a jewelry designer by founding her Camila Carril Collection brand.
We asked her some questions and she told us how it is today for a girl to start a business woman career.
You are a young female entrepreneur. Was it difficult to start your business?
Starting a business is never easy and always risky. I feel very happy to have created such a successful business in a small short of time with the help of an amazing team by my side. There is no day off and we still work 24/7 but the results are just beyond and what keep us going for more!
You are half Londoner and half Brazilian. How much do these two cultures affect your jewelry?
The beauty of you living in different countries is to allow yourself to experiment cultures, places, people. Everywhere I went I feel like I’ve taken something with me and consequently have affected the way I design the jewellery and envision it. The bug collection is the backyard of my garden and experiences.
What does the GIRL POWER concept mean to you today?
GIRL POWER for me is not taking an no for an answer, is to fight for our rights and make a more equal world.
Is there a female icon with which you would like to collaborate in the future?
Carine Roitfeld as I have long admired her hold on fashion and en eye for trends but also her larger than life character. I also look up to business women such as Angela Ahrendts when she was previously at Burberry and Olivia Palermo.
How will your brand develop in the coming years?
We hope to expand the brand to even more countries. Currently we ship to US, Europe and Asia but we still need to conquer South and Central America. There are more lines being added in too so keep an eye out for those 🙂
