Franks added that a highlight when filming her role was chatting to A-List actors like Jennifer Coolidge who were sporting her eye-catching designs.

‘It was like hanging out with old friends. Storytelling is the beating heart of all my collections and my favourite stories come from travel,’ she said.

Franks appears as an extra who wears an exquisite Camilla dress in the series two episode Abductions, which premiered on BINGE on December 4.

Earlier this year, Franks shared a touching tribute to Olivia Newton John who helped her through her own cancer battle following the actress’ death in August.

Camilla said Olivia was an ‘inspiration’ who ‘gave her hope’ during her own health struggles with breast cancer that resulted in a double mastectomy.

She is now in remission.

'I love that The White Lotus celebrates style in this magical world. That inspires viewers to push their own aesthetic further,' she said

‘During a time in my life I needed a guiding light, Olivia you were there. My inspiration. Always reaching out and checking in even throughout your own battles which you fought so bravely and with such grace,’ Camilla wrote on Instagram.

The designer added Olivia was ‘selfless and kind’ and her heart is with her family during this difficult time.

‘You were one of this world’s true earth angels and I will miss and love you always,’ she said.

Camilla was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer just four months after giving birth to her daughter Luna, in 2018.
