Dream Weaver

Fashion designer Yaron Minkowski is one of Israel’s leading designers as well as an old friend of Dori’s.  So when Dori received an invitation for the opening night of Yaron’s retrospective exhibition, she immediately RSVP “Yes!”.

The exhibition “Yaron Minkowski – Dream Weaver” presents the designer’s major milestones over the past 30 years. The various pieces provide a glimpse into Minkowski’s philosophy of design.  His works are exciting, surprising, and explore the relationship between form, color, texture, fabric, and anything in between….

Rock chicks, city slickers, Eco warriors and… library nerds were all invited by the designers to discover their personal favorites within the collections.

Real Women

Since Dove’s Real Women campaign there have been numerous examples of body diversity ads making it into the mainstream. Sharon, our USA rep, had fun taking photos of  store buyers, fellow designers and fashion students who happened to visit our booth at the NY Now show.

She asked them to ‘model’ Dori’s new SS2016 collection. What can we say? Non-traditional models are definitely having a moment! Here, we celebrate some of the ‘real women’ who just happened to look fab in our jewelry…. 🙂

Impression_V2V5577-1Keep It Professional
Looking polished doesn’t have to be boring. Wear a button-up blouse and add a statement necklace around the collar. It’s a great way to spice up an outfit while still keeping a professional look.

Taking An Outfit From Drab To Fab
Wearing statement necklaces can enhance your wardrobe and transform your outfits. Pairing a dark winter jacket with a glitzy statement necklace can do wonders, and easily transition your outfit from day to night.

NonteVerde_V2V6279Dress It Up
Pair the statement necklace with a sleek top, an elegant skirt and little to no jewelry. Your statement necklace should actually have the chance to make a statement… So, let your necklace do the talking by keeping a ‘minimalist chic’ look for the rest of the outfit.

Or Dress It Down…
If you’re a sweater and jeans kind of gal, go ahead and wear your skinny jeans and oversized sweater –just top your outfit off with a standout necklace.


What To Wear On New Year’s Eve

If there’s one night to flaunt all the sparkles and shine, it’s New Year’s Eve. Whether you’ve planned a big night out or you’re sticking closer to home, embrace the opportunity to dress up. Go forth and steal the spotlight, party girl! 🙂

Flower Power Is Here To Stay!

We can’t talk about spring florals without quoting the legendary Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada: “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.”

Yes, Meryl, we agree: Florals for spring isn’t anything new. But, they are a fashion staple and we can’t get enough of them!

This season, we see gardens growing and blooming at the stores with a mixture of happy colors and painterly like feeling. We just can’t resist these juicy, fragrant colors and invite vivid floral designs to take over our closet and freshen up our look…
