Luxury Vintage Clothing Reworked
What began as a passion project for industry veteran Ingrid Rodriquez, long time collaborator of Adriano Goldschmied design firm Genious Group, has turned into a new brand under the label Royal Workshop. Launching as a luxury brand, Royal Workshop restores and reworks rare and distinctive vintage finds into intricately embellished one-of-a-kind statement pieces. Starting with a batch of vintage t-shirts that immediately connected with designer Rodriquez's nostalgia of growing up in the 80's and 90's in Los Angeles, the company worked with local artisans to develop a signature method for working the highest quality crystals into vintage garments by hand using Tiffany-setting embellishments.
The vision of Royal Workshop is to give a second life to recycled vintage clothing that evokes a story specific to each garment. By infusing each piece with unique embellishments and celebrating the history of these pieces that were once “fan club” garments, the brand makes them into bold “one-of-a-kind” pieces for the collector and statement making tops for the fashion jet-set.
