Dorian aims to portray the feminine sensuality through his basic yet classic design, accentuated by various forms of hand beading, crystals and motif sequences, together with luxurious materials blended with sophisticated colors. Its stylish and modern silhouette brings out the feminine sensuous allurement in flaunting the curves of the feminine figure. Dorian sees fashion as a projection and expression of art. A beautiful piece of work speaks a language of its own: it brings out the inner style and charm of each individual.
"I always edit myself because the value of beading in a gown is not in how much you use but in the overall look that you achieve. Everybody has special nights out at least once in their lifetimes. And that’s why there is always something for everyone in each of my collections because I like to touch as many people as I can with what I do, and not just dress a few. Wedding is an once-in-a-lifetime event and being approached to get involved in once, is always such a privilege.
Beading should no longer be about being bright, you’ve got to do it right. Design is all about innovation but you also need to cater to market demands. I love making women look beautiful but what I really enjoy is challenge and change. Telling a woman that she looks great always does the trick; after that, she really will look great."
