Prev1 of 6Next

In 2008, Dominique Auxilly from Queen, NY started her namesake clothing line in a showroom on 5th Ave. Combining inspirations like her Jamaican culture and her love for icon Marilyn Monroe, she has created a label consisting of sexy, structured silhouettes.

Her designs have been spotted on celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Angela Simmons and Vashtie Kola. Her most loyal customer is rising fashionista and starlet, Adrienne Bailon. Ms. Bailon has been spotted in many Dominque Auxilly designs like the sheer ruffle dress and a custom made silk organza v-neck dress. This year, she was one of the talented designers to participate in BET’s Rip the Runway.

Some of our favorite pieces from Dominque Auxilly include: Cali Girl dress featuring a neon color story, Danielle cutout dress featuring a studded bustier top, Lux Lace dress featuring black lace draped in all the right places, and Miss Burton dress featuring a leather ban detail back.

Dominque makes everything custom; therefore she designs for every body shape and size. She is very flexible with her clients providing tailor fitted clothing that fits the personality of whoever she is dressing.

The boldness of dancehall style pieces and Big Apple street style are reflected in her collections. Dominique Auxilly garments are for women that are daring, fun and fierce.

As her designs continue to grace red carpets and continue to be worn by the brightest stars in music as well as cinema, we are always anticipating what this designer will do next. Take a look at more of her amazing pieces on her website @ www.dauxilly.com.
