Camilla Franks on the importance of IWD

Why she is honouring International Women’s Day 2020.

Camilla Franks has built her career on celebrating women. Since starting her label CAMILLA fifteen years ago in Sydney’s Bondi Beach, Camilla has grown her business exponentially, and now sees her designs sold in 55 countries around the world. She attributes much of her success to her tribe, and shared with Business Chicks why International Women’s Day is so important to her.

I believe that real queens share their thrones.

While I’m the ring master, conductor and performer, I am only one person. Day to day, my team, my work family, are the heart and soul of the brand and I’d be nothing without them.

After spending time in Africa, it solidified the importance of community, connection and love. It’s sort of how we can present our most perfectly, imperfect self to the world, and feel free and safe to do so.

My colleagues are my tribe. My angels. My family. My angels have made my world a safe place to be free. And for that, I am so thankful.

Thank you to my beautiful work family who allow me to feel free and safe to be me.

So this International Women’s Day, join me in celebrating the tribe.

Let’s harness the raw, unstoppable energy of women supporting women; eager for the sisterhood to succeed, to raise each other up; and to share the throne.

We’re proud to have CAMILLA on board as a supporting partner our International Women’s Day event series. Final tickets are on sale now.
