Santa Fe NM designers and entrepreneurs Diane Dorsey and Ron Helman are excited to introduce their collection of luxe casual women’s apparel and accessories available at DORSEYHELMAN.COM. Sting fans are invited to enjoy a special gift of 20% off with promo code STING at DORSEYHELMAN.COM. This offer is valid for two weeks only (through April 11, 2014).
DORSEY HELMAN creates apparel and accessories that are luxurious and casual, a playful balance between sophistication and simplicity. The collection emphasizes American artisanal craftsmanship and a clean, minimal aesthetic. Exceptional quality is aligned with clarity of form that is timeless and modern, always with truth to materials. The DORSEY HELMAN line inspires an unconventional and optimistic spirit, giving free rein to self-expression with apparel and accessories that are true to you.
The DORSEY HELMAN collection takes inspiration from the Minimalist painters that worked in New Mexico. The artists’ emphasis on line, simple shapes, and ethereal colors prompted the palette, prints and distinctly modern feel in the collection. Dorsey said, “Like many drawn to live here, we are influenced by the natural beauty and drama of the southwestern landscape.”
Truth to Materials. DORSEY HELMAN’S fabrics are custom made for them by an American textile mill, and are the finest quality yarns found anywhere in the world. These superfine fabrics provide a superior hand feel and performance that you just can’t wait to get your hands on. The leather goods, ceramics, and scarves combine American raw materials with artisanal creativity.
Diane Dorsey’s jewelry, inspired by cultures from around the world combines extraordinary and unconventional elements sourced locally and from afar, creating rare objects of beauty and curiosity for the wearer. She fuses craftsmanship, artistry and luxury, designing jewelry that is organically infused with sophistication and a twist of rock ‘n’ roll.
All of DORSEY HELMAN’s items are made in the USA, by highly skilled artisans located primarily in New Mexico. Through working with local artisans, the team has the ability to oversee the quality and participate in the creative collaborative process of developing the products. Helman said, “It’s about building real relationships with real people, one smile at a time.”
Southwest Creations Collaborative, a non-profit women-driven manufacturer located in New Mexico whose mission is to build economic opportunity across generations, is manufacturing the apparel, designed by Dorsey and Helman. “We are committed to American craftsmanship, producing the finest quality American clothing and accessories while helping to build lives locally,” said Dorsey. “We feel honored to continue the heritage of American textile manufacturing.”
True to You. DORSEY HELMAN designs apparel and accessories with a serene and sensual mix that create an effortless dance of touch, texture and movement. “Self-expression is essential for a conscious and purposeful life,” Helman said, “You know who you are. No need for another opinion…not even ours.”
