Domonique Echeverria
"My favorite thing about fashion is that fashion is a game. Think of the characteristics of a game and think of fashion. You can play pretend, play it real, make a move for cause and effect. It helps you learn as you play along (about yourself, about the past and about the future). And like some games, you must find partners to help you play along." Domonique Echeverria

Six feet tall, "loud, Latin, and curvy," Dominique is not afraid to embrace all of her. She is all passion and fearless in all of her incarnations of "Liza-inspired glitz," whether by using sequins, fringe, and now buttons, exemplified by one of her newly designed all-button bustiers. Not short on a lineage of "hutzpah," her mother once bought her a fur coat just to piss off PETA, and Dominque feels "she rules the world" in her Erte-inspired ruffled coat. I love her body-conscious floor-length black dress with the Prada pumps that she wears to the grocery store. In it, she is commanding and reminds me of her fascination with the black widow spider (who eats her mate), all "shiny and chic." Shredded tights are Domonique's torn jeans and tees, but made even more emboldened by the gypsy tattoo peeking through on her thigh.
