She is one of the main sponsors of Tel Aviv's International LGBT Film Festival, and received a special award for supporting the LGBT community in 2015.
Dorin Frankfurt presented her first ever collection made for little girls, inspired by the mother & daughter magic created in Zelda and Scottie Fitzgerald’s graceful outfits | 2016
The proceeds from the sales of Frankfurt’s collection for girls are donated to Kesher – an organization devoted to children with special needs. In a country with 320,000 special children, Kesher helps their families to raise them and provides continual guidance.
For the first time ever in a career that spans over more than 30 years in fashion, Dorin Frankfurt presented a collection made for girls. The collection consist of the same casual elegance essence that is one of the designer's hallmarks. The inspiration for the collection is based upon Zelda Fitzgerald's magnitude, yet this time these are the outfits of her daughter, Scottie, that were in Dorin's mind. Zelda and Scottie used to dress up in equal glam on their outing in the French Riviera of the 1920's, thus creating what is called Mother & Daughter magic.
