Domingo Rodriguez United Kingdom
Domingo graduated from Liverpool John Moore’s University in 2008 and won the Menswear Award at Graduate Fashion Week, securing a Harold Tillman Scholarship at London College of Fashion soon after. Domingo has interned for Delphine Wilson Knitwear, Kim Jones and Carolyn Massey. In September 2010 he won the Fashion Award at the inaugural Wolf & Badger Graduate Design Awards.
His MA graduate collection examines the architecture of the body and how its structure influences the pattern cutting. Domingo’s elegant collection is not tied to any time in history yet seems so resonant of many.
Construction, texture and color are all soft; fabrics in nude, bone, mink and dust shades include cashmere and silk blends in woven and jersey combinations, all sourced in Italy. The resulting collection has a luxurious feel and fit, and nods to refined beauty with a clear, simple silhouette.

Lilee’s collection is about the strength of women: using the undulations of a woman’s hair, a sculpting technique in French rope was developed to create intricate symmetrical patterns that give her garments form and structure. The silhouette is sensual in form with gold fixtures that reference military insignia.
Lilee showed her latest collection at London Fashion Week in Sept 2010, and was selected as ‘One to Watch’ by the prestigious Vauxhall Fashion Scout.
