Cameron Scott Gardner will be launching his debut collection of American-made luxury leather goods on November 27th. While this is the first collection for the New York City based designer, he is no stranger to designing refined luxury leather products. After graduating from the Fashion Design program at FIDM, Cameron was hired by Tory Burch to design handbags and accessories for her. From there, Cameron went on to design for some of the top names in the fashion industry such as Ann Taylor, Land’s End, Diesel, Calvin Klein Platinum, as well as designing for new brands launching in South Korea, Dubai, and the US.
Cameron is inspired by the artisanal and craftsman movements that have taken root in the mainstream. He applies responsible sourcing and production to his brand with a commitment to American produced goods utilizing global resources. Every piece is handmade in America and designed in New York using Italian leather and copper hardware from Japan. The debut collection, consisting of three beautifully constructed pieces, retails from $685-$1,250. The collection will be available to ship on November 27th but is available for pre-sale now.
Cameron has plans to expand the collection with small leather goods including shoes and belts, soft goods like scarves and hats, as well as new colors, fabrications and bodies, designing all with the modern, educated, global man in mind.
