Divine Decadence

On Saturday, April 27th, Domonique Echeverria will be previewing some select pieces for her upcoming collection, Divine Decadence; an ode to 1920s illustrator and designer Erte, Cabaret and late 60s, early 70s Rock n Roll. The preview will be presented by some of her most treasured New York City muses such as Kenny Kenny, Dylan Monroe, Mona Marlowe, Valerie Geffner, and Jeffrey Gaunt. The show will also feature facial structures and makeup by Ryan Burke.

Domonique Echeverria is a designer inspired by and fully carrying the flame of utter glamour and decadence—touchstones including Weimar Berlin, (and its most famous theatrical representation!) the feathered and jeweled arch elegance of old Hollywood, and the wildest expanses of disco and glam rock culture all comingle in her exquisite and extravagant creations. A longtime nightlife personality in her native San Francisco and current home of New York, Ms. Echeverria’s glorious mode draws further life from the jungle of drag queens, sex workers, and performers of all stripes with whom she prowls her nights and early mornings, all married to a deep appreciation and understanding of the aesthetics of surrealism. As a creator she is aggressively self-possessed, focused largely on the approach to all body types as potential art material and on the rich transformative and playfully performative aspects of experimental couture. In addition to her regular occupations as a party hostess, model and muse, Domonique’s own work has been enjoying a flowering ascent–she has been tireless in producing her own shows in NYC and has been increasingly tapped as a costumer of rigorous craft and volcanic imagination. Her work stands a bright young hope of chola rock & roll hedonism.
