Garden of Love



Dorian Ho 2013 Bridal Collection “Garden of Love” is inspired by the beauty of fresh flowers and the romanticism of a garden wedding. The collection illustrates the contemporary silhouette with embellished details accentuating the delicacy of flower petals. The classic A-line silhouette volumized with tiers of tulle gives a fuller skirt without sacrificing lightness. The everlasting long-sleeved lace slim dress with a touch of diamante is still undoubtedly a dream for all. This collection uses light fabric such Chantilly Lace, tulle, silk chiffon which creates a romantic feeling and yet adding a modern touch to it. The handcrafted three-dimensional floral appliques and beaded floral embroidered patterns enrich the detailing of the skirts, reflecting the uniqueness of each individual. Each dress aims to evoke the subtle elegance and delicate femininity of one’s self.












Falling Petals

The first season of Doll By Dorian Ho named “Falling Petals. In a season blooming with young romantic femininity, the collection illustrates the postures of the petals when they fall , describes perfectly the collection which accentuates the beauty and delicacy of flower petals in different colors and softness, by applying the lightness of fabric , the diamante detail and petal-like appliqué, it beautify the dreamy and romantic collection with a more glamorous finish. In an abundance of ruffles , appliques , silks, glittering sequins, feather and twinkling diamante, a girlish yet elegant occasional wear collection was born. Naturally the collection spells graceful dresses in pastels and diamante, but also works in trends, prettifying camouflage with tulles, beautifying rhinestone and contemporary silhouette , also with different kind of flower color like Dusty Pink , Lavender, Peach-rose, Beige and the timeless Lily White.



About the Pearl Wedding Gown
This is the first-ever collaboration between Dorian Ho and Perrier-Jouët, with Perrier-Jouët as an elegant source of inspiration for the pearl wedding gown.  The idea was stimulated during Dorian’s travel to a fashion week in Paris and visit to the Perrier-Jouët Maison Belle Époque in Épernay. Whilst working on his new collection of wedding gowns for Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong’s Bridal Fair, Dorian was inspired by the embossed artistic anemone pattern design on the bottle of the premium Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque, which was then dazzlingly transposed into the design of the champagne-themed gown.  Further inspiration came from what is inside the bottle, dripping with silvery-white pearls that resemble the bubbles of Perrier-Jouët champagne.
Commenting on the new collection, Dorian Ho said, “Perrier-Jouët has long embraced the design community and partnered with different artists.  It is my honor to be the first designer to create a wedding gown for the brand with such an elegant source of inspiration.  I have tried to produce something that aspires to the same level of rarefied quality and delightful effervescence.”
