Conversation with Dominque
Why was it so important for you to enter into the bridal arena?
I have two reasons. The first being what I felt led me to do bridal–God
was sending me all these signs. The people who knew me best would
always say bridal is my lane and not to mention the countless requests for bridal gowns
and bridesmaids dresses even though I didn’t have a collection.
The second reason for doing so is simply because I’ve always wanted to move the brand into the world of couture, which would allow me to create more elaborate pieces, which would be more towards the high-end spectrum of gown design, but I wrestled with fear.
I decided that bridal was the best way to push myself, and my brand into that direction.
What inspired this collection?
I don’t have a central inspiration for this collection. I literally
used the best pieces that I had and brought my best sketches to life
to make this collection. I see it more as an art collection. Each
piece has its own personality just like every bride.
What are some tips you want to convey to brides who are looking for a dress?
Go custom! It’s the best way to ensure you get exactly what you want
and work with a designer (hint hint) whose creative direction aligns
with your taste. Another tip would be to go dress shopping with a
friend or family member that is loving, honest and who isn’t trying
to live through you. I would also say, minimize your social media use
while planning. It can put way to much pressure on you.
