Resort Style Loungewear
In early 2018 I produced a capsule collection of babydoll style tops and one dress each featuring a hand embroidered yoke.
The collection was inspired by resort wear fashion and far away places. Destinations and eras that inspired me were the French Riviera of the 1920's and the new Rivieria of today in Central America; the Riviera Maya in Mexico. A particular seaside European hotel with luxury interiors and manicured gardens caught my eye and inspired me to paint a tropical hideaway embellished with sea shells, palm trees and sunset vistas.
Showcased here is just one of the babydolls I designed and made. You'll find the others in my online boutique in the Frocks and Babydolls Collection.
Mooshi Couture's first capsule collection of resort wear couture!
A special collection of unique pieces each individually hand crafted and inspired by a fusion of stylish French riviera fashions of the art deco era with the delicate, light and airy couture of the 1950's and 60's that saw the emergence of the celebrated babydoll top and feminine, flouncy and free-spirited lingerie.
The collection features hand painted and embellished scenes of resort interiors and landscapes of exotic seaside escapes mixed with the finesse of beautiful hand stitched embroidery and fine embellishments carefully hand crafted using haute couture embroidery techniques.
Just as the many styles of traditional hand embroidery techniques have their provenance in places of historical significance, this collection aims to translate a modern day passion for ancient handmade crafts into a desire to engage and connect a wearer's imagination with exotic resort destinations. By wearing pieces in this collection Mooshi Couture hopes to connect art and vision with place and purpose, providing the perfect reason to totally immerse oneself in an imaginary or real luxury resort inspired vacation.
This couture product is all handmade and hand embroidered using the French haute couture embroidery technique crochet de Luneville. Truly a one of a kind couture product designed by Olivia Torma. This beautiful sleeveless cotton babydoll blouse is a hand draped design that has a short yoke and gathered skirt at front and black. The front yoke is appliqued with a hand painted silk organza that is hand embroidered using a haute couture embroidery technique. The sea shells are authentic and were collected on a trip to Tahiti a few years ago.
