Ever since he received a book about Christian Dior from his mother as a child, designer Robert Rodriguez has been driven by a passion for haute couture design and artisanal craftsmanship. In 2003, after working for the house of Christian Dior and graduating from FIT in New York City, Rodriguez launched his own line: a sophisticated, feminine, sexy, contemporary collection. From sexy, silky rompers to dramatic, sweeping halterneck jumpsuits, this collection is uncompromisingly fashion-forward. Billowing pant-legs create retro 70s vibes, while cargo-pockets, belts and desert colors add a utilitarian, earthy feel to the range. This is contrasted with plunging necklines and innovative cut-outs, making sensual pieces that are perfect for a modern evening ensemble.
