In the Studio: Meet Dominique

Today we introduce our seamstress DOMINIQUE. A painter and graduate of Winthrop University, she lives in a studio loft in downtown Rock Hill and enjoys journaling, biking and shooting with film.

One reason she loves her job at TCC is that it lends itself to working with textures, colors, patterns and shapes that inspire and complement her work as an artist. Her pieces can be viewed at

Dominique sees making bow ties not only as an opportunity to hone her painting skills, but also to help the gentlemen who seek out our neckwear to feel confident, whether the occasion is a business meeting or a date with their lady.


Another exciting aspect of Dominique’s job is converting neck ties to bow ties. The risk of working with a limited amount of fabric paired with just one chance to get it right makes for stimulating work. She takes great care in focusing on the details when a challenge arises and always hopes the clients are delighted to see their repurposed neckties.


Quick Questions for Dominique:

Favorite food? Anything breakfast.

Cat or dog? Cat.

Dream vacation? Any city.

If you were an animal, what would you be? Jackalope.

Favorite current bow tie? Hands down, the Red/Navy reversible.
