Art and luxury have gone hand in hand together forever.
Just like champagne and strawberries, some things are just meant to be paired. So there was no question when I decided to marry two of my favourite things; drawing and scarves that I would choose to immortalise these on cashmere.
A facet of my formal academic education is in Textile design, a medium I had moved away from in the last few years, leaning more towards fine art techniques and methodologies. Yarns, textures, embroidery, and fabric fascinates me and I find nothing more satisfying than being able to wear one of my artworks.
My travels through India, Kashmir, and Asia in 2017 culminated with my design ideas paring with new relationships in textile manufacturing. I was enraptured with the qualities of cashmere I could source, the traditional and modern textile application techniques I saw being used, the developments in printing that have happened over the last few years, and the vibrancy of the yarns and dyes I could work with. Fortified with vision, deeply inspired, and motivated to create a product of exceptional quality, I returned to NZ to create the masterpieces you can own today.
‘Moena Moxham’ scarves are uni-sex, transgenerational and very versatile. They can be worn as a dress, trussed or tied with a belt as a top, worn as a traditional scarf, shrugged on as a shawl or simply used as a blanket on long-haul flights or overnight excursions.
A statement on their own or to bring colour and pattern to a simple outfit, scarves have always been an essential item for the minimalist traveller and fashionista.
I am so very excited to invite you to view and purchase my new collection.
