Here at Dolorous we have several exciting announcements for Fall! As much as we'd like to spill the beans about whats been keeping things so busy through the summer this celebrity sighting will have to suffice for now. The absolutely stunning Adelaide Kane, start of CW's upcoming Reign, was spotted wearing the Dolorous Menat Broad Collar Body Chain at the iHeart Radio Festival in Vegas! She styled the piece perfectly with a classic jeans and T combo letting this Medieval inspired statement piece speak for itself!

DANIELLE LEE for Caitlin Power Collaboration

My custom collection of jewellery for Caitlin Power's F/W13 Runway show debuted last Friday at World Mastercard Fashion Week Canada.  The DANIELLE LEE for Caitlin Power collection included two designs of statement silver work, a gothic, grungy silver collar and a striking full finger ring. This capsule collection was a reflection of the designers inspiration of gothic architecture and a futuristic steampunk aesthetic which I used to create jewellery that looked like an extension of the body. Above are a few of my favourite pictures of the pieces on the runway, and below is a picture I took at the end of the day that gives a sneak peek at my next metal work project!

All of the jewellery in the above photo was made by me :)

Overall, the project was a really great time and the girls of Caitlin Power are lovely and so fun to work with! Expect more pictures of the pieces soon!

Spring Musings

Its tough work running my one man army! In the past few months Dolorous has gown faster and in more ways than I ever could have imagined. With so many exciting things on the horizon I thought it was due time to catch up! After an extremely hectic holiday season, including a one of a kind sale exclusive with Lavish and Squalor and getting an exciting collaboration underway, it was time to start on the spring summer collection! Using a variety of soft pastels and some great new materials the collection shows a softer, more feminine side of Dolorous. Bright and girlie was the concept for the collection, as well as for the lookbook shoot! Below are a few of the fun and feminine props we had floating around the shoot. Expect the S/S13 Lookbook soon!!!
