  • Visitor Information

Kamera ObscuraCouture clothes at Kamera Obscura are designed and made to order by Martine Abate whose range extends from day wear and evening wear to wedding dresses. Abate uses fabric and texture in a way that is unique, playing delicate organza against Harris tweed, and shredded chiffon against ladylike satin. Add a decadent but controlled colour palette, and the result is beautiful couture that's confidentially unconventional. The shop is open by appointment.
