Camille Co is easily identified as one of the country's earliest fashion bloggers. And since then, she's worked to establish a brand that's distinctly fashion-forward and unique. Camille has been a Preview Best Dressed Hall of Famer and a cover girl, too, thus cementing her place in the local fashion scene. This designer-turned-content-creator has had a long-time love affair with fashion and we've witnessed how her style developed over the years—something we're glad to document in this article as we debut a new series called Preview Style Diary.
Preview Style Diary explores an individual's sense of style—from his or her current fashion obsessions, to her go-tos, tried-and-tested tips, down to sartorial moods and shopping habits. Here, we document how fashion plays into his or her everyday life and dissect his or her style anatomy. To kick off our brand new series, we caught up with Camille as she reveals to Preview her go-to places for shopping, fashion must-haves, and overall aesthetic.
All About Camille
Camille's personal style
In a few words, how would you describe your personal style?
"Versatile but put-together."
When and how did you realize that this is your personal aesthetic? How much has your style changed over the years?
"I've always seen fashion as something fun so I guess this is why I never really wanted to box myself into one category. I like being able to switch different styles. The only difference is now my style is definitely more polished and refined."
Name five items in your closet that you absolutely can't live without.
“My vintage Dior blazer, Topshop mom jeans, my vintage Escada belt from my mom, my midi slip dress, and my basic white shirt.”
How would you describe your "uniform" outfit?
"A midi dress with low heels."
Where do you usually shop for clothes, bags, shoes, accessories?
"I rarely shop in malls when I'm in the country. I usually shop online at Net-a-Porter or Luisa Via Roma. Our local shoe scene has been really good too like Hue Manila, Annie and Lori, and Preview shoes."
Are you an impulse buyer or more of an I'll-think-about-it-first kind of shopper? Why?
"It depends on my mood, LOL. If I'm feeling a little sad and need some good old retail therapy then I can get quite impulsive. But on normal days, I've become more of a responsible shopper, especially now that I'm no longer living with my parents and have to think more practically."
What's your fashion obsession nowadays?
"Low kitten heels."
