Lisa Taylor- Head Designer
Lisa Cameron Taylor, founder and designer, established the Cameron Taylor* cashmere brand in 2001 following years of experience in knitwear design and this year the label celebrates 12 years of successful business. Lisa trained at the Scottish College of textiles and the Royal College of Art in London where she received her masters degree in fashion knitwear. She then went to work in Milan for 18 months for Italian fashion house Mila Schon, working very closely with the Japanese stylist Mika Mizutani, where she gained a mountain of experience and knowledge. Lisa moved back to London and freelanced for designers including Nicole Farhi which gave her the confidence and ability to set up her own label, Cameron Taylor*, in 2001. Since the onset, Cameron Taylor* designs have been a success and have been exhibited at London, Paris, Milan, Berlin and New York fashion weeks.
The collection has been sold to many high-end designer boutiques around the world, including:
Paul & Joe, London and Paris; Espace Mirage, Monaco; Calypso, New York; Searle, New York; Fenwick, London;Doyles, UK; Distractions, Aspen; Adam et Rope, Tokyo; Mitsukoshi, Tokyo; Isetan, Tokyo; House of Cashmere, London; Frauenschuh, Kitzbuhel; Strauli, Zurich and Kafka, Scotland.
Following the international success and overwhelming demand for the collection, Cameron Taylor* is now online for all lovers of cashmere.
Cameron Taylor* Philosophy
Cameron Taylor* is a contemporary Scottish cashmere knitwear collection, concentrating on modern shapes that remain classic and timeless- offering cashmere lovers an alternative to traditional cashmere design.
The label introduced chunky 12 ply cashmere knitted jackets and coats onto the market, which instantly became a 'must have' for all cashmere wearers. They are extremely recognisable with their unusual silhouettes, and large horn and shell buttons.
The collection is produced by a small well established factory in the Scottish borders which has over a hundred years of experience in the cashmere industry. A team of highly skilled workers ensures that Cameron Taylor* knitwear is of the highest quality. We can guarantee that all our knitwear is manufactured using the finest cashmere yarns and blends.
