Fantastical Designs for Femme Fatales and Decadent Gentlemen ~ since 1994.
Kambriel's designs were personally selected by Dr. Valerie Steele for inclusion in an exhibit at the Museum at FIT in NYC (http://www3.fitnyc.edu/museum/gothic/Kambriel.html), and interviewed for the "Gothic: Dark Glamour" book which commemorated this iconically curated collection. The Kambriel Midnight Bustle design was used to promote the exhibit opening for Fall Fashion Week in NYC in "Time Out New York" for their "Own This City" highlight, while the Isabella Coatdress ~ also frequently used to promote the exhibit, has appeared in Elle Magazine, and other publications around the world, from Russia to Brazil.
Kambriel was presented the Gothic Beauty "Designer of the Year" award in 2005 & selected as the costume designer for a major Edward Gorey inspired theatrical dance performance for the Boston Celebrity Series which went on to tour in Tokyo, Japan and St, Petersburg, Russia. Her designs have also been used in a stage production of Oscar Wilde's "Salomé" and selected to lend a macabre, yet elegant atmosphere for the Animal Rescue League of Boston's first ever "Moonlight Ball" charity event.
Kambriel's created custom designs for a wide range of clients throughout the years, ranging from comedienne Margaret Cho to grand dame of the punk cabaret Amanda Palmer, along with Information Society, Evelyn Evelyn, Faith & the Muse, Neil Gaiman (who wore his custom Kambriel designs on the Oscars red carpet while attending for the Academy Award nominated film "Coraline"!), and many more ~ some of whom have been clients, collaborators, inspirations, and friends for over a decade.
Kambriel's theatrical fashion show vignettes have been performed across the country from Salem, Massachusetts (where my show was filmed by the Discovery Channel for a tv Halloween special), to New York City, Tampa, Portland, Seattle, Cambridge, Boston and Chicago.
CAVEAT ON CREDITS:
There is a difference between a model/photographer wearing/shooting designs because they at some point wore them (either by personally owning a piece or chosen by a third party for a collective show) or if they attended and took photos at a fashion show as an audience member could, and someone who I have personally selected to model/photograph my work. Unless the model/photographer is featured on the Kambriel website or portfolio, please feel free to contact us first in order to see in what/if any capacity we've worked with them.
Now, on to the good stuff!
