Cameron Marks is a collection of lifestyle boutiques that mixes a passion for
minimalist design with a sunny colorful Californian (& Australian) vibe. 

Founder Vanessa Ambrose grew up in Sydney with her Mum who instilled an entrepreneurial spirit in her atan early age.

Her Mum was a strong role model having started several small businesses herself
and continues to have a lasting impact on Vanessa's work ethic. 

 Vanessa studied fashion design for four years at an art school located in an old convict jail in her hometown of Sydney, Australia.
After school she worked with Australian label Morrissey Edmiston dressing high profile clients like INXS, Nicole Kidmon, Elle
McPherson, Kylie Minogue, Tony Collette, Naomi Watts, Tom Cruise, and Bon Jovi to name a few ;)

After backpacking throughout Europe and Morocco Vanessa eventually landed in Santa Cruz in 1998.

She founded her first shop in 2005 with her best friend Laura Jones, the Marks to her Cameron. Since then Vanessa has grown
Cameron Marks to the lifestyle brand it is today with two locations and a third on the way.
