Dame was founded by Sarah De Donato, a Canadian-born Artist and Designer. Her passion for creating these one-of-a-kind collections comes from a deep respect and admiration for the countless female icons that have come before her.


Sarah's personal hero is Lucille Ball. If you don't know who that is you're part of the reason she started this company. Lucy was the first female to run a major Hollywood studio, she and her husband Desi were TV's first interracial couple, she was the first pregnant actress to play a pregnant woman on television - and the list goes on. There are so many stories like this from women in almost every field. Icons like Lucy shouldn't be forgotten now, or ever. Sarah's mission is to bring the stories of these great women to the next generation and beyond. 

"It's never too late to be what you

might have been."
