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!

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….

And of course we couldn’t resist a little ‘blast from the past’, so we searched our archives and came up with these 2 images of runway collaborations between Dori & Yaron. 🙂

RSVP Yes!

RSVP Yes! And don’t worry, we’ve got you covered:
Wedding Guest Attire, Decoded!

If the invite says “black tie”:
This is the next most formal wedding dress code and usually means the wedding is an evening affair.
You need to be in a floor-length gown, preferably a classic all-black ensemble. And remember, this is not the time to be ‘experimental’…..

If the invite says “formal” or “black tie optional”:
The wording here indicates something slightly less formal than black tie is acceptable. So, a tuxedo for him isn’t required, but the event is still formal enough for one to be appropriate…..
You have a choice of a long evening dress, a dressy suit or a formal cocktail-length dress.  Don’t carry an oversize bag. Use a clutch or or a mini shoulder bag.

If the invite says “cocktail” or “semi-formal”:
Take your cues from the time of the event: Wear darker, more formal colors for an evening wedding; opt for light colors and fabrics for a daytime event.
Wear something you’d feel is easy to dance in, BUT that you would not consider as your go-to ‘day-to-night’ ensemble.

If the invite says “casual” or “daytime”:
Generally, casual means anything goes—but jeans, shorts and tank tops are probably not appropriate unless they’re specifically noted as acceptable.
We suggest wearing a dress or a jumpsuit you might wear on a date during the week. And don’t forget to accessorize!

We hope that we helped you decipher the wedding codes, so you know what you’re getting yourself into…. and you arrive to the wedding appropriately—and stylishly—dressed to perfection for the celebration! 🙂
