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.
