Welcome and….

Olivia Torma

...Hello. My name is Olivia Torma (aka Madame Mooshi), couture dressmaker of Australian label Mooshi - Handmade with Love.

I design and make vintage inspired couture clothing and accessories for discerning ladies of style. I also teach foundation techniques in the haute couture hand embroidery technique of tambour beading.

My work is inspired by haute couture fashion and costume design spanning the 1960's to as far back as the 18th century. My most revered inspiration is the Golden Age of Couture and one of the 20th century's most influential fashion designers, Christian Dior.

Dior

...Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity. Outside this, believe me, there is no elegance. Individuality will always be one of the conditions of real elegance."...Christian Dior

In the Mooshi® collection you'll find original vintage inspired clothing and accessories. For something more authentic, the Repro by Mooshi collection features styles reproduced from authentic vintage couturier and designer patterns using new and vintage materials.

I also design and make bespoke couture clothing and accessories to meet a client's particular fitting and styling requirements for any occasion whether it be high tea in the afternoon, a formal cocktail party or a vintage inspired wedding event. Please contact me to arrange a consultation and receive a personalised online quotation for a Bespoke by Mooshi service. Private at-home appointments for consultations, measure and fitting services can be arranged for customers in the greater Brisbane area.

I invite you to register for my Couture Privileges membership program to enjoy exclusive benefits I offer subscribers. To receive updates and hear what I'm up to behind-the-scenes, please subscribe to my newsletter, email feeds, or follow me on any one of my social media sites. I look forward to making your acquaintance.
