Drawing from her breadth and depth of experience as a designer and costumer in film, television and live theatre, Dominie Brazzel created her namesake collection with the cornerstones of love and luxury. Each piece is painstakingly crafted in northern Italy by the finest artisans and jewelers all over the world. Colorful exotic skins, leathers and finest Italian silks complement stunning hardware and precious stone embellishments, including a spectrum of diamonds, sapphires, rubies,and emeralds to create these timeless pieces. The hardware is forged by renowned Italian jeweler, Stefano Grando, who hails from a celebrated lineage of Italian jewelers dating back to the late 19th to early 20th century – at a time when his ancestors became the coveted jewelers to the King & Queen of Italy.
On the brand’s tagline, Luxury Unearthed™, Brazzel enlightens us to her inspiration for the collection, “During my years in period costuming and wardrobe, I had the joy of discovering one-of-a-kind garments with an attention to detail that seems to have been lost over the years,” she says. “It’s as if I’ve unearthed something so rare and beautiful that comes from nature and lives on with us today,” The innovation and dedication that embodies each article of finery inspires Dominie to create works of art that have a singular quality, and one that’s infused with the essence of the Italian lifestyle – a heritage that she holds very dear.
