Romina Dorigo

Since she was a child Romina Dorigo developed her creative attitude in mom's tapestry shop, playing with fabrics and old clothes. The first step was the upper institute for the fine arts "G. Sello" of Udine. In the last two years she went to Florence to "Fondazione Capucci" for a tailoring course on Madeleine Vionnet and her unique techniques. After two months she went to Verona to the "Fashion Ground Academy" for a seminar and a fashion show tribute to Valentino Garavani. She deepened her artistic studies at the Academy of Fine Arts "LABA- Free Academy of Fine Arts" (RN) where she graduated in October 2017. Three intense years of university, which push her to London in the prestigious "Central Saint Martin", where she had the opportunity to combine her studies with the creativity of the artists within the UAL. Her first time at CSM was not enough, so after her Fashion Mix course, she returned home to work on that new collection. The result was an exhibition at the Fashion Biennial. After the CSM course everything changed, so she moved to London for two more courses, one dedicated to sustainable fashion and one to the portfolio.

Now you can find her collections on Vogue UK, Vanityfair UK, House of Coco and Candid Magazine.

Keywords: upcycling and still life, this was her starting point for the consideration of a beauty that can be seen as perishable.

Yeagob

Yeagob was founded in 2014 by Santiago Rico, when he was studying a Degree in Fashion in Alicante, Spain. ‘Yeagob’, which means ‘Santiago’ in Hebrew, was chosen as the name for his brand instead of his very own name – Going back to the roots of his name gave him the idea of going to the origins of male tailoring as well, which has been the focus of his brand ever since.

Once he finished his studies in fashion, he worked with several clothing brands and, after a year, recovered his own project, Yeagob, creating his two first collections ‘Eutimia’ and ‘Distimia’, inspired by psychological disorders – the topic around which all his collections stem. He has now moved to Barcelona where he is focused on his third collection, ‘Narcissus’.

His clothes are hand-made, always using the best fabrics and taking great care of every detail. Yeagob can be described as classic male tailoring with a modern twist. Adjectives such as sobriety, elegance, minimalism and cleanliness define this brand.
