Finally! After shopping for hours, and sometimes days, you’ve found the closest thing to a perfect gown, you slip it on, ready to make your grand-entrance, step into the party and realize you’re looking at your best-friend, sister-in-law, and that-girl-you-can’t-remember-her-name sharing your spotlight in the same exact gown. Luckily for you, founder, world-traveler, artist, and mother, Duha Khaddash, realized the agony of such problems when her daughters, Dana, a teacher, and Shahed, a filmmaker, would drag her from shop-to-shop in search of the perfect one-of-a-kind piece. Strolling through The Big Apple, daunted by sayings like This quality is terrible! Everyone has this dress! This color is so boring! Duha found herself on Fashion Ave when her aesthetic lens led her to walk into the high-end dress designers in Manhattan. Stunned by riveting gowns that she had never seen in the top-notch department stores, Duha made personal connections with these talented designers and decided to provide an international-online-shop, Dody’s Dresses, where women like her and her daughters could have access to the treasures of The Big Apple.
