Wanting to expand into the international fashion scene, Dorian Ho started his namesake label in early 2001 and "Dorian Ho" debuted at 7th on Sixth during the Spring 2002 season.
Dorian Ho staked out his pitch in the fashion world by sheer inclination and inspiration. After acquiring a degree in marketing from Boston University, Ho returned to Hong Kong to establish ‘Doriano’ -- a woman’s collection targeting business executives on the Chinese Mainland.
The great success of ‘Doriano’ was soon followed by the debut of ‘Dorian Ho’ in 2001.
He sold in 10 years later to raise the capital for his high-octane Dorina Ho evening collection for the bewitching hours after the sun sets. In response to the overwhelming acknowledgment from the fans, he launched his bridal gown collection in November 2005 as well as opening his first wedding concept store – Dorina Ho Wedding- marking an important milestone on his fashion career.
In November 2006, he was being awarded as “The Outstanding Designer” at the Moet & Chandon’s Tribute to Asian Fashion Designers and in 2007, he received the “Recognition Awards” by the Royal Princess of Thailand at the “Bangkok International Fashion Week 2007”.
With Doriano's mass market appeal in mainland China, the Dorian Ho label is targeted for the high-end cltohing market. "Glitz & glamour" are the keywords to describe Dorian Ho which made from luxurious fabrics. Sequined, beaded dresses in chiffon, satin and organza, fluid tops in extra-fine rayon blended knits are the main fare for this collection. Sensual and seductive, it is meant for the sophisticated woman and the ladies who lunch.
