The legendary actress held a soirée at Don Angie to celebrate Dodiee and the beauty of being a woman.
It was an honor to have Brooke Shields host our NYFW dinner, which saw stylish women like Minnie Mills, Jennifer Fisher, Veronica Webb, Hannah Traore, Maria Borges, and Daria Strokous, among many others, come together to celebrate Dodiee and each other.
Brooke was first introduced to Dodiee by her good friend Helena Christensen. Not too long ago, the pair met up for cocktails and Helena showed up in one of our dresses. Brooke was immediately enamoured. The next day, she came by our boutique for a private try-on session -- and, soon enough, we were planning an event together!

“It was the purest version of inclusivity that I had ever experienced personally in trying on clothes. It just made me feel really sexy and celebrated.”

I definitely had butterflies in my stomach in the days leading up to the event. I wanted our guests to have a good time, but most importantly wanted all these women to feel good in the collection. Those butterflies flew away as soon as the party started, and I saw all of the women around me looking and feeling great in Dodiee.
Our guests were pure eye candy wearing the colourful pieces from our new collection. Colour is important to Dodiee because it represents rebirth, and it was so special to see our guests really embrace that.
Don Angie was the absolute perfect venue for this dinner. Of course, the Michelin-starred restaurant served some amazing dishes, but it also provided a warm, welcoming atmosphere for our guests to really connect with each other. Because that’s what Dodiee is all about: inclusivity, friendship, and celebration.
