Ayah Tabari has achieved what so many have attempted, a successful fashion brand that makes giving back to the community trendy. How many times have we kindly purchased a limp gift item from the latest charity bazaar, only to shove it to the very back of our cupboard.
Mochi has become synonymous with innovative interpretations of traditional textiles.
This Dubai based blonde beauty has ingeniously added lightness to heritage, why does it have to be so heavy and serious all the time? Ayah’s kind of heritage is joyful and colorful without sacrificing authenticity. Working with talented artisans from across the globe, perhaps the most liberating thing about Mochi is that it is inclusive. With every collection we are exposed to the designer’s characteristic approach to something culturally new to us. Palestine, Uzbekistan, Jaipur, Hungary and the list goes on. For her latest collection Ayah explores Spanish culture and takes us with her on the journey.
Inspired by childhood vacations to Spain with her family, this luxury collection captures the drama and passion of Spanish culture. Using traditional Spanish silk Manila embroidery techniques, the pieces come to life with intricate patterns of flowers, birds and other natural motifs, all laden with symbolism from Spanish culture.
We can’t help but imagine ourselves a doe-eyed maiden, with a generous cleavage in these clothes, and perhaps a Don Juan around the corner.
We are thrilled to share with you Ayah’s hopes for 2016.
