DORA KELEMEN

KNITWEAR DESIGNER

My experiences in Budapest and Paris both expanded my horizons and shaped my views as a designer.

I graduated at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (Budapest) then moved to Paris with a French Government Scholarship and studied in Atelier Chardon Savard.

I took part in the RADO Revolution show with my “Transparency” collection and I developed my skills at Jean-Paul Gaultier and Chloé. After years at Véronique Leroy’s company as a knitwear designer, I decided to launch my own knitwear collection in 2015.

I love structure, transparency and architecture, and I blend these inspirations in to my collections.

I always pay attention to the fact that my clothes are made in a sustainable way. I use natural yarns from Italy and my garments are made in Budapest in a small knitwear factory.
