New York Fashion Week 2014 Report: Day 1: Dore Designs

Yesterday, February 6, 2014, kicked off this year’s Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week and boy was it an exciting day for Diamond Envy and Dore Designs!

Dina and I traveled a few subway stops from the Diamond District to the Empire Hotel, just West of Central Park.  Held in the glamorous Crystal Room, we mingled with some amazing designers, bloggers, and celebrities.  We were lucky enough to see the very first ready-to-wear and evening separates collections from Dore Designs along with their famous evening gowns.

Inspired by “an empowered, strong female…who creates the trends,” Head Designer and CEO, Dawn Smart presented an incredible show filled with eye-catching and bold designs.  Utilizing only Swaravski Crystals and fine fabrics, the collection sparkled down the runway.

The glitter and bling were obviously our favorite aspects of the line and we snapped some photos to share with you.

 Light pink, dark pink and clear crystal elements create an inticate, swirling patten on this high-low style top.  Satin shorts give the look a sexy vibe.

 Dramatic texture and subtle shimmer give this fit-and-flare style gown head-turning appeal.


We found the collection to be fun, chic and daring.  Wouldn’t it be exciting to see some of our diamond or emerald jewelry paired with these stunning looks?


PS: We met fellow bling fan- the very lovely and intelligent, Candiace Dillard (the current Miss United States!) She loved the Diamond Envy ring I was wearing and graciously posed for a picture.  Just gorgeous.
