'Old Clothes' is one of the most special initiatives of the Galician firm, as it includes 29 designs donated by clients of Adolfo Domínguez who keep garments from collections up to 40 years old in their wardrobes. A way to demonstrate that if a garment is made with quality and a vision of durability, it can remain intact over time.


Caring for the environment and ethical textile production have been essential in the firm's latest proposals. Domínguez was in contact with environmental movements during his studies in Paris and London, a philosophy that has accompanied him over time and is reflected in his work.

Now, it is his daughter Adriana Domínguez who takes over as president of the company, to continue creating collections full of elegance and temporary garments.
