Pedro Rodriguez was from Spain and at age 10 became apprenticed to a tailor. While still a teenager he was designing on his own, forming his couture house in 1923. His work became very popular after a showing at the Barcelona Fair in 1929. He was especially known for his beaded evening gowns. Rodriguez had salons and boutiques in many major Spanish cities and resort towns.
