The Surprise of the Unexpected
“A closeness between streetwear and couture emerge to create a modern-day direction.  We embark on a new casual way of dressing up…Or is it a high-end way of dressing down? No matter, it is really only the surprise of the unexpected that interest us.”

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!

From the show’s catalogue:
Epic style captures Dori Csengeri Imagination, and her Camelot haute couture necklace is a reminiscent of medieval gowns, fierce battle gear and dragons’ scales.  With its immaculate embellishments and its hand-stitched linen embossed with gold leaf, the necklace strives to find as Csengeri puts it, the “balance between timelessness and timeliness”.
