Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger burst onto the fashion scene as a young model gracing covers and working around the world. A true jetsetter, her extensive travels from Milan to Paris, London and more, have given Ocleppo Hilfiger an appreciation for fashion textiles, handbag and shoe materials and the entire design process.
This passion led to her founding her namesake brand, Dee Ocleppo, a line of affordable luxury goods. With Dee Ocleppo, she strives to fill a gap in the market by offering luxurious items, such as artisan made leather handbags and shoes, with silk scarves, pajamas and cashmere. Her sights are set on further expanding into a Global Lifestyle brand. In addition to its own website, the brand’s pieces are currently available in the most cutting edge retailers, Farfetch, The Webster and Saks. Dee Ocleppo will be broadening its retail presence further this year.
In 2017, she and her husband, Tommy, invested in Judith Leiber, and she serves as Creative Director and Co-Owner of the iconic brand. She and her husband share seven children, three of whom have special needs. Passionate about philanthropy, Ocleppo Hilfiger is an outspoken advocate for several Autism organizations and serves on the board of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), and Glam4Good, an empowering non-profit that helps uplift those in need through fashion and beauty.
