Camila Basurco, creative consultant and founder of The Last: “Wellbeing means feeling good about myself”
Camila Basurco is a tireless traveler and lover of artisanal design, especially if it’s made in her native Peru. For almost a decade Camila lived in Milan, where she studied Fashion Business at Istituto Marangoni; she’s also lived in Hong Kong and currently splits her time between Lima and Madrid.
As a creative consultant Camila works with several brands, but she always has time for her more personal project: The Last. The brand, of which she is the founder and creative director, offers capsule collections of unique and timeless pieces made by artisans from Peru and around the world.
We connected with Camila in between her travels and asked her to answer our mini wellness questionnaire. But our first question was this: What does wellbeing mean to you? “It means feeling good about myself; having the health and energy to get up each day and move forward with my projects,” she says.
