Happy Hump Day Fashion Femme Fatales and Gents! How are you, my loves? Today I will share with you a breathtaking collection by not only a very sweet woman, but a talented designer! Dore Designs head designer and CEO Dawn Smart, who I’ve had the pleasure of knowing for a few seasons now (years in fashion talk – lol), outdid herself at New York Fashion Week with her newest Ready to Wear and Evening Wear collections.
Dawn spoke of her inspiration, “The Dore muse is an empowered, strong female who stands apart from all others in any setting. She has international influences and a European flair. Her wardrobe is filled with head turning pieces that marry with timeless separates for a seamless approach to long-term fashion. She creates the trends.”
Check out the collection which includes French corded lace, Italian stretch fabrics, English wool, cashmere knits, Indian silk, hand-painting and sumptuous designer weight jersey. OH…AND THE BLING! I would remiss not to mention the amazing Swarovski Crystals used for the appliques and 3-D elements (encrusted butterflies, silk petals, feathers and even fur). Dore Designs has a longtime partnership with Swarovski.

I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
