The Marker team sat down with Dori to talk about her philosophy, inspiration and her fall-winter 2014-2015 collection. Here is the interview as published in The Marker Women Magazine….
What were the thoughts and inspiration behind creating your fall-winter 2014-2015 collection?
“This season is all about change! The interplay between hand-embroidery tradition and creative intuition lays the path for new innovative designs. I enjoy mixing influences without borders and playing with contrasting elements while creating signature narrative designs that are a testament to time. My collection’s palette is a mixture of harmonious brights with subtle neutrals allowing for unconventional looks and inviting my customers to stretch their imagination.”

What’s your philosophy?
“Creating with passion. This way, designing every collection is a thrilling and intriguing experience for me as well as… for my loyal followers….”
Dori is having fun adding a twist to a black & white outfit with a digitally printed tunic, personal jewelry pieces, a pair of converse sneakers and….a hand fan… :))
…any styling tips?
“Think of an outfit as a balancing act. Add some harmony and a dash of humor to the mix and you are good to go! ” 🙂
in this week’s tuesdays with dori session, we asked …
team: would you say there are any cultural or historical references in what you do?
dori: over the years, i appreciate that my work contributes to the conservation of a traditional, feminine craft, the roots of which are planted in the origins of human culture. there is an inherent beauty in the fact that we do everything by hand, in a company of women. it is a tradition that is on the verge of disappearing from our world.
team: so speaking of tradition & history … when did the world of jewelry first enter your life?
dori: lets just say that jewelry is a part of my private every day world …
as a little girl, i would search & examine through my mother’s jewelry box! necklaces, brooches, colorful buttons and fabrics are the things i played with regularly as a child. it seems to me, that at this point in time, i have not yet grown up at all! 🙂
well, we think “growing up” is overrated, anyway … we will probably all be “playing” with jewelry our whole lives, thanks to you! 🙂
