Hailing from Gabon, Dominique Siby continues to make international headlines for his ever-growing fashion empire Felio Siby.
Recently, The Luxury Network Miami member Felio Siby has landed exclusive deals with Formula One race team Sahara Force India and a Brand Partnership with renowned tennis player Tomas Berdych.
Felio Siby kicked off the holiday season with his first annual “Black Christmas” event that was held at the Bay Harbour store over the weekend. Guests wore all black cocktail attire and got a preview of Felio Siby’s latest luxury designs. The entrepreneur wanted to have a party for every one who loved the Felio Siby brand. To celebrate he gave away handmade pieces to the first twenty-five guests that arrived.
Luxuria Lifestyle Florida sat down with Dominique to discuss all his latest endeavors. He would prefer you refer to him as a businessman and not just a fashion designer. “I am a businessman that just happened to be creative,” says Dominique Siby. “I just knew at some point in my life I was going to be involved with fashion and that’s where I am at now.”
Dominique’s business all began with a simple idea to start a clothing line. Felio Siby started with only a full line for men. Followed by many requests, he later created a women’s line. After he decided to focus on exotic bags, and accessories line, then expanded his product line to watches.
Dominique’s passion for fashion quickly merged with his favorite childhood sport of Formula One. “I wanted to be a driver first of all,” says Siby. When asked if he still wanted to be a driver, Dominique responded “No, maybe in another life.” But as a fan of the sport, Dominique wanted his business to be associated with the Formula One sport. He started to attend a few races then met a few people that opened the door for sponsorships with Formula One race driver’s Sergio Pérez and Felipe Nasr.
Dominique humbly expressed one of his future goals to be one of the biggest names in fashion. Look out for more to come from Felio Siby including new handbags coming soon. The top celebrity he would like to work? The singer Rihanna. “Everything happens in time, there’s no rush,” says Siby. “I am lucky with what I have achieved so far.”
