DiscoFashionArt consider Domingo Rodriguez a Liverpool Fashion ambassador and a design talent the city should be extremely proud of. For those of you who don't know him (shame on you!!)
Menswear designer Domingo graduated from Liverpool John Moore’s University in 2008 and won the Menswear Award at Graduate Fashion Week. He then went on to secure the Harold Tillman Scholarship for his MA at London College of Fashion.
His graduate MA collection for AW10 was scouted by for an exclusive capsule collection ‘Domingo Rodriguez for ASOS.’ He later won the Wolf & Badger graduate design awards 2010 and his SS11 collection was presented during Paris Fashion week in June 2010 as one of Esquire Magazines ‘7 Brilliant Brits.’
Domingo cut his teeth interning for Kim Jones and Carolyn Massey and has successfully collaborated with Phi-Nom Leather, Saga furs and Kopenhagen fur.
The video below, 'I'll be there" is a video written & directed by Benjamin Lussier with fashion By Domingo Rodriguez.
The video has been removed from Vimeo and Vine but can be found on our Instagram page! Soz Guys.
The premise of this film was inspired by Domingo Rodriguez's approach for his spring/summer collection of 2013. His designs structure the muscles and lines of the male body; taking organic contours and turning them into structured patterns.
The contrast between the organic inspiration and the hard-edged/structured treatment is in some ways reminiscent of the conflicting artistic movements of romanticism vs. classicism (nature vs order). "I'll get there" presents four short narratives where carelessness and natural urges clash with ambition and purpose.
This fashion short, whilst it features Rodriguez's collection, also tries to explore the underlying themes of its conception.
The video went on to win Best Fashion Short at the Miami Fashion Film Festival on the 15th September! Well done Domingo, we hope to catch an interview with you soon!!!!
