RONI DORI

My love for eyewear has been going on for over 25 years, since I've started working in this business.

During these years, while finishing BA in Graphic Design, I worked as a designer for "Go Eyewear"  where I also designed several Private Label collections for different companies.

Following this, I was a Frames Fashion Stylist for one of the largest chains in Israel and then moved to be VP of Frames Sales in a leading distribution company.

For the past 5 years I am the designer of my own brand called "Ronex" - a unique collection of hand-painted eyewear for men and women.

My love for eye glasses started 25 years ago after I finished graphic design at WIZO Haifa / Canada. I then started working in the Galilee Optic factory in Kibbutz Kfar Giladi, where I live, and was part of their design team for 8 years (until the factory has closed).

1994

During the course of my work there, I designed frames for large companies abroad as part of our private label program. 

I was responsible for all sales ( POP) and marketing materials, including catalogs, posters and designing the factory’s booths/stands in  yearly international Optic exhibitions, in cities like Milan, Paris and New York.  

Fashion coordinator for Israel’s largest optical chain called  "Opticana" ,

a position I built and which still exists today – where I was responsible for the frame collations in the stores and and the kind of frames needs and for the point of sales displays and store decorations.

My position includes participation at international eyewear exhibitions and the selection of collections and models according to the changing fashion trends among all target audiences.
