With over 20 years experience working in film, theatre and commercials, Camille Benda has enjoyed the process of supporting directors, producers and actors in realizing their creative vision through costume. Camille’s research-led design approach started with a love of art history and languages, evolving into a passion for character and script interpretation once she discovered costume design for theatre.

Camille has an MFA from Yale School of Drama, and a Masters from the Courtauld Institute in the History of Dress. While working in the film industry across the US and Europe, Camille has also furthered her academic work with various talks on dress history and the philosophy of design at the Victoria & Albert Museum, The Costume Society and the Courtauld Institute, Stanford University and University of California, Berkeley, and has developed and taught classes at SDSU and Studio Arts.
