Based in Lisbon, Dahlia Rodriguez is a dressmaker who has passion for crafts and textiles. Following a period of long and intensive professional training at Modatex to complement her knowledge on sewing, she launched her own brand in 2017 as designer and maker offering tailoring, quilting and training services.
As member of the collective Modistas de Atelier, she exhibited her creations at Lisboa Design Show (LXD) 2017 and 2018 as well as at the International Fair of HandiCraft (FIA) 2018. Moreover, she is also doing a research on artisanship and development.
In 2020, together with Svetlana Petrova from Empty Your Wardrobe and Marta Sieteiglesias from Warm and Wild, she was awarded with a grant from the Worth Partnership Project to develop the pilot project MUB COLLECTION, a capsule collection designed and manufactured on the basis of the principles of circular economy and highlighting craftsmanship heritage. With this purpose, Dahlia Rodriguez designed and manufactured MUB Collection using discarded bed sheets collected by EYW and naturally dyed by WW.
Inspired by cultural heritage, the collections she designs have a cultural meaning and bring a stories with them.
Committed to sustainability, the garments she makes are eco-friendly and made with natural textiles such as organic linen, cupro, hemp or organic cotton.
