Victoria Doramus Takes Fashion Industry Experience to the World of Nonprofit Charity

Victoria Doramus has had a successful, decade long career in the fashion industry, with a record of applying her skills as a trend specialist to finance, content creation, logistics and other relevant fields within fashion.

The aforementioned skills were first put to use with Assistant Media Planner at Mindshare, whom she worked for from their Los Angeles office. Her chief responsibility was negotiating the ideal vendors for Assistant Media Planner, to find the best service while staying within budget. Later on, she was television and film director Peter Berg’s personal assistant, and similarly handled the logistical and financial side of managing his home, his domestic employees, and his relationship with building management.

Victoria Doramus has also had a fairly prolific writing career, covering diverse topics from trend and lifestyle writing on dedicated outlets to having her work published on popular news media outlets. Her work extends to ghostwriting as well, with her writing included in books within and outside her normal area of expertise.

After a decade of work in the fashion industry, Victoria Doramus committed herself full-time to working for nonprofit organizations. As a volunteer Recovery Expert for the Amy Winehouse Foundation she aids recovering addicts, and also advocates for the youth with associated programs.

Best Friends’ Animal Society counts her as a volunteer. They can also boast to run the largest no-kill shelter for animals in America; Angel Canyon, at Kanab, Utah. They have regional operations across the nation, and have played a part in the dramatic fall in animals put down annually at ‘kill shelters’ throughout America. The number was as high as 17 million the year they were founded, 1984, but has fallen by almost 90% to the current level of 2 million annually.

Victoria Doramus has also volunteered with the Women’s Prison Association, a non-profit aimed at serving incarcerated, formerly incarcerated and at-risk women. Her own struggles with addiction brought her to work with the organization, to help those who’re where she once found herself. These and other nonprofits are where she’s decided to take the skillset she developed from a decade-long career in fashion.
