Dahlia Rodriguez is a dressmaker based in Portugal who has a passion for crafts and textiles. Following a period of long and intensive professional training at Modatex (Lisbon), she launched her own brand as designer in 2017 offering dressmaking and quilting services.

As member of the collective Modistas de Atelier, she exhibited her creations at Lisboa Design Show (LXD) 2017 and and the International Fair of HandiCraft (FIA) 2018.

Moreover, she is doing a research on craftsdesign and social change at IADE – Universidade Europeia funded by the Portuguese FCT.

In 2020, she was awarded with a grant from the Worth Partnership Project to develop the pilot project MUB COLLECTION with Svetlana Petrova from Empty Your Wardrobe and Marta Sieteiglesias from Warm and Wild. MUB collection is a capsule collection designed and manufactured on the basis of the principles of circular economy, zero waste and using artisan techniques. Dahlia Rodriguez designed and manufactured MUB Collection using discarded bed sheets collected by EYW and naturally dyed by WW.

The collections she designs are inspired by cultural heritage and the garments she makes are committed to sustainability and made of reused fabrics or natural and organic textiles such as linen, cupro, wool, hemp or cotton.
