During early 2010, Camilla introduced her first winter Gelato Collection incorporating her free-flowing signature kaftans and quirky new playsuits and jumpsuits. "Drawing inspiration from my travels, the Gelato Collection embraces the Australian climate and our outdoor culture. By introducing trans-seasonal colours, I have merged summer through to winter and broken winter fashion traditions to create a kaleidoscope of luminous coloursin playful kaftans, playsuits and jumpsuits" says Camilla.
Camilla mesmerised the fashion world at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2010 with the launch of her BABYLON' Spring Summer 2010/11 Collection. Drawing inspiration from far off lands, Camilla collaborated with 20th Century Fox to unveil a secret Avatar theme with a unique sensory experience and theatrical production. Vivid hues and dreamy graphics highlighted the multi-coloured imagination of The Lost Garden, Atlantis, Bermuda, Chimera, Spirits, Shadows and Pandora and Avatar ideologies translated into wearable fashion.
