Dote was created by Dorothy, founder and designer. She has always loved creating beautiful things so making clothes that she could wear while nursing her daughter seemed like the most natural thing to do. She started out designing for women's wear label Dotted Line, so Dote was an extension of the work that she already did. She believe that clothes should be tasteful and effortless - in wearable styles that will continue to work season after season. It is with this in mind that she design for Dote.
Dorothy Loh trained in fashion design at Singapore's Raffles Design Institute. She created womenswear label Dotted Line in 2006 before launching Dote in 2008. Prior to entering the fabulous world of fashion, she spent her days in a small cubicle at a large international financial institution.
