DFW PR Girl

1 note

DFW PR Girl: Can you please tell me a bit about yourself and describe your design aesthetic? 
Camille Jeanay: My name is Camille Jenay and I am on a mission to become a force in the fashion industry. My work is fun, edgy, sexy, and vibrant. I love to play with different textures, shapes, and cuts.
DFW PR Girl: What is your design and production process like?
Camille Jeanay: Every morning I wake up and get a cup of coffee. I do some homework (read through my new magazines, meditate, watch news) for new inspiration. Next, i get to work on my orders for the week. Day One- Monday is a lot of cutting and creating patterns. Tuesday, I begin the day ordering fabric and I work for about 9 hours generally from 12pm-9pm. Also, on Tuesday, I begin piecing the patterns together that I cut on Monday and I generally do a lot of sewing. I try to get about 4 pieces done a day from Tuesday- Friday. Everyday during the week, I make sure my intern wishes all of my Facebook friends a Happy Birthday followed by a post of Birthday Greeting Cards from me and my company. Finally, on Friday I get some shipping done. However, If I do not get a chance to finish some orders by Friday, some pieces may get sent out Saturday. On top of incorporating production in my weekly schedule, I also have to maintain my everyday life. i have meetings, interviews, photo shoots, and preparing for fashion shows.  
DFW PR Girl: What do you hope to convey through your designs?
Camille Jenay: I hope to convey a sense of fun. Sometimes when going to a fashion show, the fashions on the runway are so drab and boring and I just love to bring life to the runway. My designs encourage confidence and Safari Ablaze Spring/Summer 2013 conveys that message instantly. The moment you see it, you’re eyes light up, lips curl up into a smile, your heart warms and you say, ” I want that.”
