As the fashion industry rides the wave of technological advancement, the marvel of ethnic craftsmanship has become a disappearing art. Fortunately, Ayah Tabari, the founder and creator of Mochi, has stepped in to change that. Basing each collection around regions known for specialized hand-embroidery techniques, Tabari has quickly built a tremendous following by both preserving and honoring traditional craftsmanship. Previous collections are named after and pay homage to the works of ethnic communities in Jaipur, Thailand, Hungary, and Palestine.
Now, Mochi is set to debut a new body of work based on central Asia’s Uzbekistan. The ‘Uzbek’ collection features delightful and colorful chain stitching rendered in sun, moon, tulip, iris, and carnation motifs. Paired with on-trend denim pieces, Tabari’s gorgeous ethnic designs are poised between the bohemian and the polished and are ideal for the summer. Flamenco looks, culottes, sheath dresses, and full midi skirts promise to make delightful additions to your seasonal wardrobe.
