Dondoks Announces the When 2 Showgirls Make Shoes Campaign

Dondoks is a Franco-Mexican-Brazilian Shoe brand and the beautiful story of two friends who met through their common passion for dancing

Paris, France – April 24, 2017 –  The idea of Dondoks sandals was first brainstormed back in 2015 as our co-founder Carmen Cerrillo was travelling to Spain. She was looking for a pair of nice colorful sandals, but she couldn’t find anything she liked. She thought how nice it would be to have a pair of cute, comfortable and stylish sandals for summer. After returning to Paris, she shared the idea with her best friend Charlotte who had just graduated from a renowned Parisian fashion school. Together they realized it was time to create a product that would combine high quality materials with beautiful and feminine designs. Fast forward two years, and they are proud to announce the launch of Dondoks.

“We have been working on this project for almost two years now, and it took us a long time to find the right manufacturer who would understand exactly what we had in mind and who would be willing to work with a young brand. As a matter of fact, we were looking for a traditional and handmade “savoir-faire”. We knew that in Europe, France and Italy are well-known in the shoe industry for luxury handmade products, but we had also heard that Brazil’s history in high-quality shoe production could be the perfect solution for two girls coming from Latin America.“

About Dondoks

Dondoks is a Franco-Mexicano-Brazilian shoe brand, and above all the beautiful story of two friends who met through their common passion for dancing. Carmen and Charlotte both started ballet at a very young age, one in Mexico and the other in France, before joining paths in Paris. Both girls worked as Showgirls in renowned cabarets such as the Moulin Rouge and the Lido de Paris, and modeled for designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, while enjoying life "à la parisienne". After studying fashion business at International Fashion School Esmod, Charlotte had a thought: why not create something of their very own, based on the girls' second common love: shoes.

Dondoks was therefore born from the two girls' will to create a colorful shoe brand that would breathe feminity and joie de vivre, sourcing inspiration from their shared Latino roots and backgrounds in Cabaret. Their sandals are designed to instill exotic style and fun to your outfit, while raising consumer awareness of the production and sales processes. All products are handmade in Brazil by leather artisans, and combine esthetic designs and local production, far from the modern mass-market way of consumption.
