Q&A with designer Dóra Domokos:
How would you describe your work? What is your technique?
For DELACIER, each piece is made of stainless steel. The custom-machined frame is covered with string art technique. All the necklaces, the neckbands, the cuffs and other accessories, are applied with the combination of both modern technology and traditional techniques. This unique fusion must not happen at the expense of comfort, so the wearability plays an important role in the design process. The jewelry is best characterized by its exciting shapes that are renewed each season. The string art pattern for each piece is unique and unrepeatable, emphasizing the uniqueness of the wearer. Timeless stability meets sophisticated elegance in the collection. In addition, DELACIER also provides extreme fashion accessories not meant for everyday use, but for the futurist line of the brand.
What was the most important thing your parents taught you, that you now bring into your work?
Mainly, the sense of purpose and the insistence.

One of the form of abstract art, called drip painting in which paint is dripped or poured onto the canvas. This has inspired my new collection for spring-summer 2015.
