Domingo Rodriguez presented his Spring / Summer 2014 collection at The London Collections: Men RTW Designer Showroom at the Hospital club and at Capsule: Paris.
Expect minimal cuts and progressive pattern cutting, using deceptively simple techniques, quilted silk georgette on super soft modal jersey and double layering for soft, seamless hems and finishings. All contrasted with luxurious leather pieces that give the soft sports feel of the collection a refreshing yet sophisticated edge.
Stripped of excessive detailing the colour palette adopts a modern mustard, white, stone, navy and black.
Domingo was born to a Dominican father and English mother, moving to Liverpool when he was 5 years old where he would later study fashion design at John Moores University. Although he began his studies learning the craft from scratch after no previous fashion experience, Domingo was quick to receive recognition and was awarded the Susan cotton travel scholarship, visiting Hong Kong and encountering his first taste of the luxury fashion market.
Rodriguez then gained industry experience interning at the renowned Delphine Wilson Knitwear and at menswear designers Kim Jones and Carolyn Massey, all of which have been said to influence his own work. With his BA collection Domingo Rodriguez was awarded the Harold Tillman Scholarship to study MA Fashion Design and Technology (Menswear) at the London College of Fashion, after impressing a judging panel including Julien Macdonald and Claudia Schiffer at Graduate Fashion Week 2008.
