(Los Angeles) – JOSEPH DOMINGO unveils his Spring Summer 2008 collection “Goddess” on October 15, 7PM at Smashbox Studios during Mercedes Benz Los Angeles Fashion Week. The thirty-piece collection that will come down the runway is a study in feminine grace, breathtakingly flawless in execution and meticulously precise in its elegance. Taking a cue from the poise and bearing of goddesses past, present and future, Joseph has designed a line-up of glamorous column gowns for those statement entrances on the red carpet. With a base palette of pink, white and gold there are also a range of exquisitely hand-made pieces, fringed cocktail numbers, cropped jackets, sleek knit separates and swim wear. Silhouettes are clean and linear with no middle grounds – they have structure and fluidity with hems either short or long.
Always a must-see during Los Angeles Fashion Week, the collection demonstrates Joseph Domingo’s consistent mastery with sophisticated women’s wear. Joseph delivers a carefully evolving line that clearly understands how a woman of means dresses. According to Joseph, “This is about a living, breathing goddess. She’s smart, she’s chic, she’s well-versed in fashion, politics, art and culture. She’s someone who inspires everyone with a little help from fashion.”
Blessed with an eye for style, San Francisco-based Joseph Domingo worked closely early in his career with a French designer who helped him sharpen his skills in draping and construction before he started his own label. Since the line’s inception, Joseph has been creating glamorous separates and full wardrobes for a diverse clientele who call on him for the incomparable fit of made-to-measure pieces and the inimitable style of anything custom-made. His gradual move into creating ready-to-wear has been met with positive response after having shown his collections on the runway at LA Fashion Week. The “Goddess” collection – presented in cooperation with Elite Progressive Cosmetology and Goldwell – is another step in making Joseph Domingo a fully realized fashion brand. He says, “With this collection, I want to show women the beauty within and the potential of their style.”
