Dori’s Bridal Collection – ‘My Day’ Blog Post

Every bride wants to look stylish and feel special on her wedding day. There are quite a few ways to achieve a timeless chic look. Dori’s fab bridal collection inspired our ‘My Day’ team to go out and photo-shoot a story that illustrates how to incorporate a statement piece of jewelry into a winning bridal style.

If you want to dial up the wow factor with a unique statement jewelry piece, here are some tips:
* The focus should be on the jewelry piece.  We suggest choosing relatively plain                  dress & shoes that don’t boast too many details.
* A statement necklace normally looks best with a strapless wedding gown.
* It’s better to bring the jewelry piece to your first appointment with the hair stylist, so             he/she can experiment with different looks that will complement the bridal statement           piece.
* We suggest natural wedding makeup with delicate eye shadows.

Nancy’s Bachelorette ♥

It all started with an email:
“Dear Dori, My sister, Nancy and I are huge fans of your jewelry. We both lived in Israel for several years and we each own at least 10 Dori pieces (necklaces and earrings). We have turned many friends onto Dori Csengeri designs through the years. I live in NY and Nancy lives in Paris now. Nancy is getting married in Israel and I wanted to explore an idea with your team. I would like to throw a memorable event for Nancy and her close female friends in Israel before the wedding. Instead of the ordinary bachelorette event I was thinking it would be wonderful to weave in Dori Csengeri design since it’s been such a huge part of Nancy’s lifestyle. Would your team be interested in hosting Nancy’s bachelorette?”
Of course, we said: “Yes!” 🙂

We met at the studio, where Dori told Nancy and her friends how she developed her unique technique. She shared with them the “behind the scenes” of making Dori pieces and answered questions about her new line of kaftans & handbags and what makes her inspired…. Image

The next stop was our Parisian style boutique downstairs, where everyone was having fun trying on their favorite Dori pieces. Image
And then, it was time to toast to the bride-to-be.a toast 2…and toast some more…. 🙂

throwing riceMelanie, we had a blast hosting Nancy’s bachelorette at our studio.  You are the best sister ever!!! 🙂

Nancy, we’re really happy that you’ve found Mr. Right! Wishing you both all the best for the wedding and for the future. ♥♥♥

much love,
Dori & her team

 

Bonjour Paris

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.
esti pics - dodo show 046The 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.

20130301_224100             They had fun sampling gourmet olive oils at the…olive oil specialty store….

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… 🙂

Irina had a good time “touring” the show, finding great designers and peeking at the upcoming fall-winter 2013-2014 trends…

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…
20130305_135321But 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
