Meet our Studio Manager…that is Irina. Irina is our wonder-woman of organization who manages a team of 25 embroidery artisans and gets all our orders shipped out in time. Additionally, she maintains the extensive Dori designs library and…is our “go to person” for all fashion emergencies. Vogue needs a Dori haute couture piece for a photo-shoot in 2 days? An anxious hubbie desperately needs a pair of Dori’s earrings for a 10 years anniversary that is just around the corner? Irina remains calm and her motto is: “Yes, we can!”. So no wonder we think that she’s awesome and as a fun thank you gift Dori & Giora invited Irina to join them to the Premiere Classe Tuileries show in Paris. And yay! She did.
The first few days of Irina’s visit were dedicated to the famous “must-see” spots in Paris (and the burbs) such as Château de Versailles, the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Arc de Triomphe. She was even “invited” to a wedding just outside The Louvre…. 🙂

Dori enjoyed strolling with Irina in the streets of Paris and showed her some of her
favorite specialty stores.
They had fun sampling gourmet olive oils at the…olive oil specialty store….
They were drawn to the beautiful matryoshkas (nesting dolls) at Peterhof Paris
And they tried to guess who would be the perfect cutomer for the hippo head at the
Le Douze antique store. 🙂
And then…it was time to get serious and get ready for the Premiere Classe Tuileries show, so Irina rolled up her sleeves and helped Dori & Giora to set-up the booth and give it the final touches of the Dori signature look… 🙂
Dori, Irina & Giora happily pose for a “before” picture on set-up day……
Irina had a good time “touring” the show, finding great designers and peeking at the upcoming fall-winter 2013-2014 trends…
Pasotti umbrellas had on display a medley of umbrellas & walking sticks studded
with Swarovski crystals
Dominique Denaive exhibited his statement resin jewelry pieces
And Finsk shoes dazzled Irina with their style icon wooden wedges.
But…at the end…Irina’s most favorite item was….surprise surprise…
Dori’s red hot Scandal earrings…. 🙂
After the show ended, it was almost time to go back home, so like a true fashionista Irina rushed to Galeries Lafayette for some fun shopping or rather eye shopping…
But Irina’s trip couldn’t come to an end until her “finding the best macarones in town” mission was accomplished…and the announced winner was….Pierre Herme
Bon Appetit! 🙂
