I started my brand, D.Auxilly with a $300 investment in a Kenmore sewing machine, and has been designing by faith ever since. Self-taught, I began making my own designs, wearing them to local parties where my designs generated interest in young women. At age 21, she took a leap of faith and decided to drop out of college and open a boutique in Westchester, New York. There, I designed custom clothing for women of all sizes. Two years later, I relocated to Midtown Manhattan.
My first collection made its debut during New York Fashion Week in September of 2009. D. Auxilly has been seen on, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Brandy, Tamar Braxton, Lil Kim, Eve, Letoya Luckett, and most recently, Lizzo just to name a few. My designs have also been seen in Essence, BET, E! Network, VH1, The Met Gala, and The Knot. Today, D. Auxilly currently creates bridal and eveningwear luxury gowns.
I realized that I am called to more than fashion. By brand is a platform for a greater good. That greater good is to empower families and be a voice for the unborn. - Dominique Galbraith
