Inspired by their background in the fashion industry, their Santa Barbara upbringing and their love of California’s vintage vibe, sisters Margaret and Katherine Kleveland launched Dôen in 2015. But Dôen wasn’t destined to be just any clothing label. The design duo set out to create an all female collective with a quest to design beautiful, yet practical, silhouettes in luxe fabrics, avoid intermediary markups, and to be socially responsible when it comes to domestic and overseas production. In fact, every overseas manufacturer they work is owned or co-owned by a female. And the good doesn’t stop there. Each season, Dôen designs a unique children’s style of which 100% of its profits goes to benefit Room To Read, a non-profit organization for improving literacy and gender equality in education in the developing world. Not only are we absolutely in love with their clothes (hello, embroidered blouses and fringed silk tunics!), we love supporting their empowering mission and celebration of real women.
