Dori’s Golden Rule

“I started my high-fashion jewelry brand in 1987″ says Dori. “A big part of my mission as a woman designer was to resurrect women’s crafts and in particular needlework as artistic means to express female experience. As a woman designing for women, my ‘golden rule’ is to create jewelry pieces that are thrilling-intriguing-surprising, yet are comfortable. I want my customers to be able to express themselves and to actively participate in the creation of their own image. I also want them to love wearing my pieces because they’re lightweight and they can easily wear them all day long.”

“Mastering the technique that I developed takes a long period of intensive training. My artisans and I spend many hours together and we sit on an all open-plan one floor, so that there’s continually an open communication. Naturally, when I hire new artisans, it’s for l-o-n-g term. Since the beginning, bringing women together and being socially responsible have been deeply instilled in my brand’s culture. My team does not look like the average work place staff — it’s an all women team with the exception of one man (who happens to be my husband 😍) — so equal pay is not an issue here. I’m proud to say that most of my team’s artisans have been working with me for ten years and longer!”

Sip, talk fashion & ring in the Holidays

To ring in the holiday season, Dori recently hosted a holiday get-together with fashion bloggers at her flagship store. The event was as chic as can be… and full of Holiday style inspiration.

After a toast (with a glass of bubbly of course) and some tasty noshes, the fashion bloggers asked Dori about the biggest fall-winter trends and how she incorporated them in her collection.  Here are Dori’s thoughts about 2 of the biggest fall trends:

“When the fall collections debuted at the various fashion weeks, it was impossible not to notice that fringe was all over the runways ” said Dori.  “My Paris collection is party-ready with glittering Swarovski crystals and swaying tassels.  Yet, the subdued colors and geometric shapes add a refined aesthetic to the look. Another thing I love about this collection is that it allows the asymmetrical earrings mix & match.

“Leopard, python, zebra, croc and other animal prints roamed free and wild across the catwalks this season.  Not ready for head-to-toe leopard print? Why not start by subtly adding Zafirah mid-size animal print earrings to your outfit and then work your way up to the big statement Zafirah pieces? After all, animal print inspires self- confidence, independence and….just a little bit of shameless self-promotion.”

Whichever trend you’ll be taking up in your outfits this season, we wish that your holidays and New Year may be filled with happiness and fab style!
