FASHION: Dominique Ansari

Published in RAW Features

Dominique Ansari is an Independent Designer living in the Bay Area of California. Inspired by fashion since she was a child, she attended the Art Institute-Hollywood in pursuit of a career in Fashion Design. While in school, she took an opportunity to study aboard in Milan for three months. While there, she visited Paris, Spain and Greece. Her travels filled her with a more intense passion for the industry and set things in motion for her future.

Dominique received her BFA and went on to work as an assistant designer in Los Angeles before taking the big leap into starting her own brand. In the spring of 2010, the designer conjured up a forty-one piece collection embracing a mixture of innocence and rocker attitude, which was her first collection debut.

Her designs range from girlie jumpsuits and rompers to body conscious risqué frocks, elegant couture gowns, and edgy swimwear in a variety of feminine hues. Her latest Collection entitled 'Garden Fairy'  for Spring 2011 will be showcased at the RawArtist San Francisco event.

Dominique sells her collections at local boutiques and through her online site. She was invited to showcase at Project Ethos for Los Angeles fashion week in March 2011 and her clothes will be featured in Georgiou's Flagship store in Sausalito, CA in May 2011. She hopes to one day become an internationally known fashion mogul.
