It is Becky Camp’s job to live and breathe the essence of Austin. Twice a year, she travels to Paris, New York, and Milan in search of the clothing, fine jewelry, and home goods that best embody the spirit of the Texan capital. After jump-starting her career in fashion at Veda, a clothing store in New York City, Camp returned home to the Lone Star State to work at lifestyle boutique ByGeorge, where she is now the assistant buyer.
Established in 1979 by Matt and Katy Culmo, ByGeorge is known for carrying the city’s most exclusive collection of high-end goods—thus, it’s no surprise that people like Camp are among those running the show. With an eye for luxury and a soft spot for Texas, Camp shares her favorite ways to kick back, relax, and keep Austin weird.
