Person properties

General info :
Camilla Nickerson (born 1 January 1965, United Kingdom) is a stylist and fashion editor linving in the United States.

It was in the more experimental context of independent style bibles i-D and The Face that Camilla’s signature style began to flourish; she freelanced for them during the late 1980s and early ’90s, a halcyon period of London street style. In 1992, she moved to New York, taking that iconoclastic spirit with her.

In 1988, Camilla gave up her comfortable permanent position at Harpers & Queen to work freelance as part of the cadre of photographers, stylists, make-up artists and hairdressers who were to change the face of fashion photography in the late 1980s and early ’90s. These included the photo-graphers David Sims, Corinne Day, Glen Luchford, Mario Sorrenti and Juergen Teller; stylists Anna Cockburn, Venetia Scott and Melanie Ward; hairdresser Guido Palau; and make-up artists Pat McGrath and Linda Cantello.

In 1992 Camilla was hired by Anna Wintour to work at US Vogue as fashion editor; over the subsequent 22 years, she worked her way up to senior fashion editor, sittings editor at large and then contributing editor.

She has styled 28 covers for American Vogue, along with editing innumerable sittings for British Vogue, i-D, the now-defunct The Face and Tatler among others.
Nickerson has styled runway shows for fashion houses including Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent and Calvin Klein.
Nickerson released a book entitled Fashion: Photography of the Nineties, coedited with her then husband Neville Wakefield.

She lives in New York.
