Total D'Voshion for Fashion Designers Natalie Vorontsoff and Ludmila Toon - page 3

"When we went on Wire Image and saw Janice Dickenson and Jasmine Dustin (from 'Deal or No Deal') wearing our stuff, we almost forgot how to breathe! It was a step in the right direction."

Recently, the D'Voshion line was featured in a star-studded fashion show at one of Hollywood's hottest clubs, Area. There, Vorontsoff and Toon met one of their favorite models, Joanie Dodd, of "America's Next Top Model" fame. The designers recall the experience, saying, "We got to work with a lot of great people for that show. The guys at TD Ink Magazine invited us to participate in the show, and it was our first event in an arena like Area in Beverly Hills. We met Joanie Dodd, and she modeled our fashions along with models from the Janice Dickenson Modeling Agency. We've really enjoyed working with Joanie and have continued to do so. She wore our gold lame and black lace gown to VH1's Big in '06 Awards."

They have dressed numerous celebrities, but Vorontsoff and Toon's favorites are Jasmine Dustin and Erin Cummings. They gush, "Jasmine's star is still rising, but she is so warm, friendly, down to earth, and has a beauty that radiates from the inside out. We also enjoy Erin Cummings, who looked fantastic in our green silk halter dress."

The D'Voshion fashion line has become an enormous hit, not only in Hollywood, but across the nation. But even with all of the attention and praise Vorontsoff and Toon receive, they remain humble and continue to be thankful everyday for their success. In the next ten years, they hope to expand the D'Voshion line to include clothing "for mom and baby, as well as handbags, and clothing for men."

"Our favorite thing about being designers is the creativity. It's also nice to create as a duo and bounce ideas off each other. Because we have slightly different personal styles, it can give birth to something quite beautiful and unexpected when it synthesizes."
