The imagination inspired colors celebrates the unicorn in us all. Whether headed off to a 9 to 5 job, a Holiday party, or just playing dress up at home. Doe Deere, originally named Xenia Vorotova, moved to New York City, with a taste for the American dream, at the age of 17 years old joined by her mother and sister from Russia.
What Doe Deere experienced upon arriving in the United States was anything but “The American Dream.” She and her family were homeless, and lived in a homeless shelter. They received meals from a food pantry three times daily. Deere was eventually given housing for her mother, sister and herself. There she was able to find comfort in having her own room. Though the conditions of the housing projects where they lived, were deplorable, and considered unsafe by many. With assistance, Deere was accepted to The Fashion Institute of Technology with the credentials of sketches she had created while in the shelter. Doe Deere continued to persevere through all of the triumph and became one of the most noted entrepreneurs to date.
Lime Crime founded in 2008 has grown to be one of the biggest make up retailers in today’s industry, inspiring women to become entrepreneurs. After 10 years, Lime Crime still receives a 5 star rating from new customers daily. Clients existing, and new rave about the quality, and beautiful products Lime Crime provide. Doe Deere is certainly proof that hard work, persistence, and tenacity pays off. As she embarks the new journey of motherhood, Doe Deere, is sure to produce yet another beautiful unicorn.
