My Philosophy – The Marker interview with Dori

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.”

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! ” 🙂

Are you ready to play with fasion?

tuesdays with dori

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team: would you say there are any cultural or historical references in what you do?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? jewelry box - taken from pinterest

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! 🙂
