Style editor AISLINN COFFEY speaks to DORIT BAR OR, founder of fashion brand DODO BAR OR …
Dodo Bar Or is a fashion brand with a clear DNA: a rich Middle Eastern aesthetic coupled with authentic Mediterranean design elements. “I have never lost my identity, who I am or where I have come from,” says Israeli-born actress turned fashion designer Dorit Bar Or. “My own style is cool, not perfect! Even when I dress up to go out at night, it mustn’t be perfect.”
Known for bohemian detailing like tassels and embroidery on kaftans, dresses, skirts and tops, her cool contemporary clothes are perfect for summer, at home or abroad.
“My designs are relaxed and flattering. I love women and always want to flatter them. I was a movie and theatre actress for many years and I’ve always had a strong sense of style. I express myself through fashion but now, with my own eponymous label, I’m not only the actress but the director too.”
Dodo Bar Or is at Brown Thomas Dublin; www.brownthomas.com.
