Meet the Designers - Dominique Pearl David

Dominique Pearl David is a 21-year-old fresh graduate of Los Angeles Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) with Cum Laude honors in the advanced studies program. The native Southern Californian currently resides in New York. She describes her own style as “slouchy chic,” and her designs are inspired by fairytales and the Japanese geisha culture. She is most influenced by designers such as Rei Kawakubo and Paul Poiret. Her craft in sewing has enabled her to collaborate with Disney, Guess Inc. Ramona West's online vintage store, Kanye West, and Gwen Stefani's line, L.A.M.B. She is also known for her collaborations to create custom prom dresses around the Ojai Valley. In addition to her collaborations, Dominique debuted her first collection on the runway earlier this year in Los Angeles.
