Season Two: In Their Closet Featuring Dominica Briscoe of 3 Degrees Runway

Dominica Briscoe is the fashion creative behind the brand and online boutique, 3 Degrees Runway.

Dominica fell in love with creating custom designs at an early age. With help from her mother, she made her first outfit in grade school. Dominica’s mother fitted her with custom outfits as early as she could remember. As early as picture day for kindergarten, various dresses for school dances, and a pantsuit for prom! The work ethic and determination was planted in her young mind and although she pursued other aspirations, her dreams eventually led her back to fashion.
While earning her MBA at TWU, Dominica started a blog called “3DegreesDB” where she shared her fabric trips all over the states, designs, and tips on how to personalized commercial patterns. The brand’s name and history derived from the 3 generations of enormous creative and designing skills her family beholds; maternal grandmother, mother, and Dominica herself. As the blog grew, so did Dominica’s interest with designing and creating clothes for clients.
Fast-forward to today! Dominica has launched the online boutique,, to offer fashion on a larger scale for women. She curates stylish ensembles for those wanting to look chic, urban, professional for a day at the office or relaxed for brunch with girlfriends.

Dominica and I have known each other since college days in Houston, Texas and we “run” down memory lane. We discuss the challenges of owning a small business, the social media influence and how far we’ve come since we met over twenty years ago! She has supported many of my events over the years and it is my pleasure to introduce her brand to you. I have great hope that you will join me in supporting this awesome business! So many of her pieces are in my closet, I’m hoping you will add a few to yours.
