During the shelter in place order The D.Vine Boutique has created an DIY Craft Kit teaching children how to earn, invest, and save through fun activities such as making lip gloss, candles, hair bows, and much more. The D.Vine Boutique is also still operating all sales online and shipping tutus, custom shirts, and one of a kind accessories across the U.S.
The D.Vine Boutique was founded by Dominique Harness in 2016. The D.Vine Boutique first started when Dominique needed easily accessible and affordable tutus for her daughter Taigan. The D.Vine Boutique started as fun space to order custom made tutus for any occasion, but a heartbreaking event caused the company to switch it’s focus.
One day when Taigan went to a family outing at a forest preserve, she was made fun of for wearing an afro. The events that took place on that day caused the company to refocus on not only creating tutus but creating tutus with purpose. The new motto became building confidence in girls one tutu at a time. The company began bringing awareness to the issue with various campaigns such as “Naturally Beautiful” , “31 Real Girls” , and “It All Started with A Tutu”. The company also began hosting workshops, events , and birthday parties to not only empower girls but also create safe spaces for building community, amongst the children that will build a bully free environment for generations to come.
