This beautifully gothic skirt truly is wearable art. I don't even know where to start...the mix of colors and fabrics is amazing, and has that witchy whimsy that I adore. I cannot thank Kambriel enough for creating this amazing skirt. I will treasure it always. Very much thanks, ~ Sam Keck

Kambriel is one of my favorites! The rose brooch is lovely. However, I have purchased a Gorgeous dupioni silk bustle jacket and skirt. Both made to Perfection w/my measurements!! She sells beautiful accessories and does excellent work with her made to order jackets, skirts and neck pieces. I ordered the above pieces, which are truly akin to wearable art 2+ years ago. I wear this art several times a year. The outstanding craftsmanship has my outfit looking brand new today...Love her!! Thank you, Kambriel
Kambriel - Fantastical Designs for Femme Fatales and Decadent Gentlemen since 1994
As Kambriel wrote in her introduction for the premiere collection in 1994, "Being true to yourself is more of an internal quest, but everthing that is buried deep inside rises to the surface eventually. This is where we come in... the reflection of your inner-self onto your outer-self. Clothing that brings you a little closer to your dreams."
Called "Queen of couturiers" by author Neil Gaiman, Kambriel's designs were selected by Dr. Valerie Steele for inclusion in a major exhibit at the Museum at FIT in NYC, and she was personally interviewed for the "Gothic: Dark Glamour" book which commemorated this iconic curated collection where Kambriel's designs were displayed alongside those of Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, and John Paul Gaultier. 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, 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" as well as for his wedding), and many more ~ some of whom have been clients, collaborators, inspirations, and friends for well over a decade.
When friend & fellow independent designer Laura Purdy of The Pale Court died tragically young, Kambriel volunteered to complete all of Laura's unfinished work. She spent an entire year sorting, puzzling together, and finishing them all, then photographed the collection in the UK countryside (a place Laura always longed to go) for a fashion editorial as well as a tribute fashion show in New Orleans to preserve Laura's memory and the legacy of her designs.
Kambriel's theatrical fashion show vignettes have been performed across the country from Salem, Massachusetts (where Kambriel's fashion show was filmed by the Discovery Channel for their Halloween special), to New York City, Tampa, Portland, Seattle, Cambridge, Boston and Chicago.
Kambriel's designs have been described as being "too beautiful for the red carpet, there needs to be some kind of ethereal gold and silver carpet that shifts colors at will!"
Kambriel's influential signature style merges dark elegance and timeless art. Her award-winning designs have been featured worldwide in museums, galleries, fashion shows, editorials, The New York Times & worn on the Academy Awards red carpet.
