Moixa

Moixa is a London based luxury brand that brings together design innovations expressing new ideas about appearance, construction and wearability.

Pronounced Moy-sha, Catalan for female cat, the textile led designs reflect modern, ultra-feminine styles for women who are individual and confident. The collections combine complex textile and fashion techniques with each garment hand-made and distinctively individual.

The concept is the brainchild of New Yorker Denise Mahmud who moved to London in the late 90s creating limited edition garments and accessories at Camden, Portobello and Old Spitalfields.

With Moxia, Denise has successfully managed to combine her expertise in Batik, Shibori, silkscreen, block printing, weaving and embroidery to create high-end, high-quality fashion.

Her textiles have been exhibited at ICFF New York, Maison & Objet Paris, MoOD (Meet only Original Designs) Brussels and The Bargehouse Festival (part of the London Design Festival) as well as featuring in international magazines.

"Fashion is the life of ideas and expression. I'm fascinated with the energy within us all and try to reflect this through timeless quality of choice fabrics and intricate detail of each garment – energy after all is never destroyed, it's simply transformed."

Moixa's garments are hand-crafted in their London based studio and hand-picked UK manufacturers, underpinning the company’s support for the British textile industry and the pursuit of impeccable craftsmanship and authenticity.

Evolving each season, the collections are beautifully crafted and trend-resistant - the very definition of investment dressing.

mercedes benz fashion week russia March 2015

27 March witnessed the opening of the 30th Anniversary Season of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. It was the maestro of the Russian fashion, Vyacheslav Zaitsev, who traditionally was the first to present his new Fall-Winter collection 2015-2016 Nocturne. The first block of the show featured female demi season coats that became the signature garments of the Fashion House. Principal core of the collection made the formal suits, slim fit jackets and straight dresses accomplished with massive accessories. There were silk wine-coloured skirts with mixed textures, combination of graphic and floral prints on the evening gowns, plenty of adornment - which still left the collection in harmony with the calm and compete colour palette and the choice of silhouettes. Little black dress with the asymmetric collar and bright insets performed in stained-glass technique was according to designer the major highlight of the collection. As for the male line - classic coats, straight-cut suits and shirts with prints made personally by hand of Vyacheslav Zaitsev took the catwalk.
