DESIGNER NAME: Domingo Rodriguez.
BACKGROUND: Domingo originates from Liverpool, with a Dominican heritage. He completed a Masters at the London College of Fashion, freelancing and ghost designing along the way.
IDEAL CLIENT: “Someone who enjoys personal indulgence, progressive cutting and forward thinking details.”
TRADEMARK PIECE: “My leather jackets are proving to be popular, with signature curve sleeves and self-rib detailing.”
COLLECTION: “This collection has been inspired by the idea of hybrid pattern cutting, fusing together different garment components into one piece; but in a very accessible and wearable way. There’s also a bit of a military edge to things which is a new direction for us, but as always knit wand leather is at our core for autumn/winter 2014.”
ONE PLACE IN LONDON THAT ALWAYS INSPIRES YOU: “I've been to the National Portrait Gallery countless times; it's an endless source of inspiration for me, and my favourite place in London.There, and the BT Tower - team Rodriguez loves the BT Tower!”
BEST THING IN LONDON TO DO FOR FREE: “A visit to the Wellcome Collections for weird and wonderful curiosities.”
