Domenico shares his story of business leadership on a recent interview he gave to Fox News Radio and can be heard here.
Domenico started his career as a lawyer in New York City and specialized in legal matters for the fashion industry. He soon got seduced by the American dream and left the law firm to set up a publishing magazine. From there he took the giant step of taking on the merciless world of luxury fashion and set up the high-end brand known to the privileged few as Domenico Vacca.
Domenico is unique in that his fashion house is not part of a large conglomerate. This in today’s world of cut-throat fashion can be a limiting factor as it can constrain marketing of the brand. Despite this limitation, Domenico has gone on to expand his boutiques to Milan, London, New York, Miami, Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, Abu Dhabi, Doha and Mayakoba, with further expansion still in the works.
Domenico doesn’t follow his customers – they follow him. He has kept his business model undiluted. He focuses purely on luxury and exclusivity, two reasons that keep his clients loyal to his brand.
Today in the world of high-end fashion, we are all too familiar with brand names like Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford, Gucci, Hermes and the rest but Domenico states that his clients go for style and not fashion. His level of exclusivity is the new appealing factor in the choice of certain celebrities’ wardrobe.
After all, if one were successful, why would you wear something you could buy from Main Street when you could wear something that was as individual as you are?
