DOLLHOUSE Design Team with 14y/o actress Eden Duncan- Smith and her 16 y/o stylist at the Dollhouse Showroom in NYC #TeamDiversity … While many companies have to go out of their way to create departments to promote diversity & some have to be legally forced or publicly shamed toward representing a more diverse workforce at their company- Dollhouse has always represented diversity in staffing organically! As Dollhouse Designer Makesha says “There’s something at Dollhouse for everybody” because Dollhouse represents everybody! Having and listening to the diverse voices of your customer base matters! #DiversityInFashionMatters

Eden Sanaa Duncan-Smith made her Broadway debut in 2010’s Tony Award winning cast of Fences along side Denzel Washington and Viola Davis. Her next Broadway role was Young Nala in Disney’s Lion King.

Other drama awards she won for these roles are the Delta Sigma Theta Emerging Artist Award and the Audelco Rising Star Award. In 2012, she lent her talents to Equality Now speaking out against non-consensual child-marriage. Hollywood director and writer, Joss Whedon wrote her piece and doted, “Eden has extraordinary integrity as a kid actor.”
Eden is a girl destined to change the world with her voice, talents and heart! She defies stereotypes of what roles young starlets should take and as a proud member of the Project Girl Performance Collective, stretches the definition of girl power. From the Fringe Festival to Estro-Genius Festival, she uses art to draw attention to issues that matter to her. This is also why in 2011, she was honored by BET and Black Girl’s Rock as a M.A.D. Girl (A girl making a difference) for her work with her non-profit, Angel In The S.K.Y.E. Network.
As a dancer, she has studied at Dance Theatre of Harlem, the American Ballet Theatre and Purelements: Evolution in Dance.
