Dora Mojzes: Dark and Sculptural


I did a little bit of an 'Ooooohhhh....' when I came across Dora Mojzes' work, it's a little bit on the stunning side. This collection was inspired by the 1940's woman and military at that time, the silhouette reflects the era by having a nipped in waist, broad shoulders and pencil skirts. This has all been modernised with Gareth Pugh-esque, pointed exaggerations at the shoulders and neckline.

The headpiece in the last image reminds me of a vintage hat that would have been worn to a funeral, a piece of net covers the mourning face, though in this picture she looks seductive rather than depressed.

There is a definite sexual vibe running through this collection, perhaps to signify the confidence of the women in the 1940's. I love the way it would be slightly terrifying to see a woman in the street wearing any of these pieces, again I guess it's the confidence coming through! You'd have to be very confident to wear these...

For a very young designer, she only graduated in 2008, she has produced a very accomplished collection and I'm looking forward to seeing much more of her work.

For more info and to see more of her work, visit her website. Her pieces are also available to buy on Not Just A Label.

  4. I had never heard of Dora Mojzes but find her architectural designs really intriguing. Somehow I don't think people will call these LBDs.

  5. Whoa, these are insanely gorgeous. I wouldn't mind wearing a toned done version of some of these pieces every single day.

    I'm going to check out more of her work and lust over it!

  6. I love that site, www.notjustalabel.com Its probably the one place in the net to actually locate cool indie designers.

    I'm really loving the stuff that is starting to come out of Eastern Europe lately. There's finally been enough time since Communism for people to really come up with some amazing fashion. In my blog post today, oddly enough, I've got an interview with a designer from Latvia who started her company in 2008 too. That must have been a great year for near abroad designers. Interesting.

  8. Ooh, that sheer shirt is just divine. I love the pointy exagerated collar and shoulders. Very wearable as well, actually!
    That hat is wonderful as well. I love a good hat, and I actually think I would wear that. It has such an interesting shape, and that close up of it shows just how intricately it has been folded.

  20. Very sexy. So much leather scares me sometimes though. I imagine it would be just so...uncomfortable. Haha.
    Incredible for only just graduating in 2008!

  30. i love how they're so ridiculous and out there, sculpting and architecture in the shoulder pieces - looks great. but then there's normalcy with the color and buttons in the one piece. i love this!

  36. I'm a little intimidated by the dragon-like spikes, but there's no doubt a lot of great talent has gone into these designs! Love the whole small waist vs. big shoulders look.
