Meet The Designer
The Claude Kameni brand [formerly known as LavieByCk] was founded by Claude Kameni who was raised in Cameroon where her passion for fashion was cultivated.
As a child, she was extremely creative with a sharp eye for silhouettes and colors. Following her relocation to the United States at the age of 8, she was able to take a fashion class in high school that sparked her design journey. Shoutout to Mrs. Upadhyay from High Point High School!
For Claude, creating and designing clothing is an intimate process. She is mindful of the theme and style involved as well as the environment in which her items will be worn. When she is ready to cut cloth, she treats it as her own skin. Claude Kameni originally named her brand Lavie meaning life in French because she realized that fashion was truly her life.
Throughout the years as a self-taught designer, Claude has been able to create stunning garments for both women and men respectively. She merges her roots with today’s modern styles to produce brand new creations that the world isn’t ready for.
Claude has studied patterns extensively to where she can manipulate it to create extremely eye catching garments.
Her unique sense of urgency creates a compassionate relationship between her and her clients. This has led Claude to be able to design attire for A-List celebrities across the globe.
At 27, Claude has become a master of African-inspired design.
