​"I believe fashion not only defines the world in which we live, but cultivates it, while providing an outlet for self expression." 

With a strong interest in fashion, Dominique Thomas is a Maryland native whose desire to  thrive in the fashion industry flourished in grade  seven. It is in 2006 when he first began to explore the world of fashion design, creating custom screen-printed t-shirts, iron-on transfers and hand painted designs. In 2012, he shifted gears and began developing his independent clothing company, VI•II•VI. Catering to both men and women, VI•II•VI will provide clients various  choices of formal, casual, party and urban  fashions suitable for any occasion.

In 2020, Dominique initiated a rebranding and updated the company name to 626 THE BRAND. While the core values of the company remain the same, the company received a new look, expanded product lines and now offers garment production services to individuals and business.

Dominique furthered his knowledge of fashion by obtaining a Fashion Degree in Dressmaking & Design. In addition, he has also taken several formal classes in sewing, patternmaking and fashion design. "My goal is  to let my designs move us into the next generation of the fashion industry.”
