introducing the 'hot kiss bun' ....

thanks to the innovative bakers at paneton french bakery we are serving 'hot kiss buns' in ALL MOOCHI STORES tomorrow!!

pop in to your fav moochi store on Saturday 23 March to try one of these delicious treats.

we are getting into the spirit of easter here at moochi and wanted to create an extra special treat for our customers to enjoy in store. the first thing that came to mind was to take a traditional easter treat and modify it with our xx (kiss kiss logo).

our good friends at paneton french bakery were super excited to get on board for this little project and cleverly re-designed the hot cross bun. our first delivery arrived at mooch head office this morning, just in time for morning tea. yum!!! they were super soft inside with a little spice with the perfect sticky glaze on top, amazing!

we reccomend getting in early for your paneton hot cross bun fix!! these will not last long.

check out panetons full range of products here and read their story about their love of french baking http://www.panetonbakery.co.nz/

paneton hot cross buns can be purchased from their bakery on halsey street or from Farro, Moore Wilson, Nosh, selected New World supermarkets and specialty food stores.

 thank you... to you. we love bringng you newness with our collection and it's so nice to see you enjoying it in store! last weeks launch was a huge success!!

your fav styles from the collection were...

shake dress

a fun spring dress for days when the sun is shining!! designed in an exclusive moochi print and feather weight silk chiffon this is a special piece you will keep in your wardrobe forever. the gathered on stand up collar and skirt add a feminine touch and create a fun silhouette. wear a cate slip underneath and pair it with our luxe court shoes with ankle strap for evening or your fav spring sandals for day.

mr tee

we have given your oversized tee a modern edge with large silver metal studs, adding a touch of rock n roll to a relaxed weekend style! mr tee is cut with oversized proportions and is designed to hang loosely from your shoulders. glam it up with fitted panel legs and patent luxe court heels, a super hot option for the evening or slip on your fav pair of spring shorts for laidback weekend style.

cape shirt

a hero piece from our spring 2012 collection, the cape shirt has a sophisticated take on bohemian glam. it features a shirt collar, button down front and clever handkerchief cut. slip it over a fitted black dress wearing the buttons undone and tie the corners under each arm. for a preppy look, button it up to the collar and pair it with tailored spring shorts or pants. designed in a whisper weight silk this is the ultimate spring cover up!!

special thanks to our sponsors dermalogica and citta for the amazing gift with purchase!!

deutz, san pellegrino, old mout & whittakers for your delicious spring refreshments!

we love having the M.A.C girls in store!! it is always such a treat.

wow! it's 3 sleeps to go until out first ever solo show and i am so emotional! we have even on such a journey created this event for you and i hope it all goes to plan/dream.

thursday 6 september

we have just had a super fun moment in our showroom with 4 international fashion creatives who have one to see what mood is all about! these ladies were either bloggers, magazine writers or had their own stores. it was great to be able to share moochi with some new media and to get such a positive reaction. we hope to work with these ladies again soon!

unlike a lot of the designers our decision to do a show was actually quite recent. this has meant a very focused approach from all in the moochi team to be ready. with the amazing support of our brand partners, the fashion week team and some clever individuals that are helping us sunday will be a fun show.

 

 yes, it is an inseason show, which means we are catwalking styles we have created for spring summer. but, we have added lots to give the show some moments to fall in love with. over half of what is walking has not been seen yet! so if you come along you will be treated to a first glimpse.

 

plus

friday 31 august

with a show we get the chance to make one off accessories to help tell the story. there are some to die for pieces. the design room has been a hive of craft activity!

 

 

with 31 looks plus 5 special surprises the show is as big as we could make it!

monday 20 august

i decided to launch our kiss-kiss logo this week too! over the years i know how you have become so attached to the brand and i have been wanting to create a logo that represented this connection. when the idea of a stylized kiss-kiss came up it was instantly a yes, as what could be more personal and fashionable than a kiss-kiss!! 

 

 

for the show, there are two main fashion groups, the first is fun and fresh, the second is more sophisticated and sexy, but still very moochi!

tuesday 21 august

working with mac on two beauty looks has been really fun. it is so different creating a  look for lots of girls rather than just a single model for a shoot. xxxx from mac came in and we had a great play choosing the direction to go in.

the vada hair team were there too and we have done something that makes my stomach flip every time i think about it!!

 check out vada's website here: http://vada.co.nz/

selecting models for the show has been quite a journey. we started this 3 weeks ago and i think we finalised our line up on tuesday!! i hope nothing changes now. catwalk models are very different from shoot models as they are seen from all angles and i know how high people's expectations are about how they look and walk!! you would think walking the length of a catwalk was a natural thing to do, but it is surprisingly hard to do it well! these girls are so brave!

music is another big thing in a show that can make or break things. we are adding the element of a live act here, with tali. a new zealand woman who has already achieved great international success as an dj and is now forging a career as a singer. we can't wait to hear her live. her yet to be releassed somgs are playing in our  workroom while we work, so we are fully immersed in the moment! the first single will be launched on george fm this friday!! and then she sings live with us on sunday!!! too much fun. keep an eye on our blog for how to get a free download.

 

 wednesday 15 august

for those of you who were lucky enough to secure front row seats before they sold out, our goody bags are fab. myken from fashion week said she would come to our show for the bag alone!!!

 

dermalogica, schwarzkopf, qvs, hersheys, san pellegrino and orly have been wonderful brand friends for a while now and we are very grateful for their continued support. we love having orly and ....in the too.

my local cafe zus and zo cafe have shared a voucher too. this cafe is a stylish herne bay gem, that often helps the nz fashion community getting there morning caffeine hit.

 

 

 hershey's are a new friend for moochi. with the creation of our kiss-kiss logo, who better to help tell the story than hershey's kisses!! it was a lot of fun approaching them with what we were up too! and we have been so good in the workroom, not sneaking a single kiss, saving them all for you!!

 

so now it is time for final samples to arrive final bagging and tagging. this is the moment when you hope everything is as it should be!!

 

friday 7 september

friday we have a sound check and then it will almost be time! exciting!!!!

if you would like, to come to our show, go to (link) . the tickets are only $15!!! i am sure it will be a lovely afternoon for you and there is so much more happening at fashion weekend that you could lose yourself for hours!

"this is a fabulous wine, with a beautiful body balanced between the gentle sweetness of fresh pinot noir fruit and the immense strength of toasty yeast. laid upon a featherbed of steady, fine mousse, and leaving a long and lingering aftertaste, brut offers a rendezvous to remember"

 

san pellegrino!!! famous for their refreshing sparkling water san pellegrino also create sparkling fruit drinks. one of our favs is the aranciata rossa!! super refreshing and very popular with our customers whilst shopping on a warm spring afternoon. check out their full range pf products here: http://www.sanpellegrinobeverages.com/int/en/default.aspx

"it has become a status symbol exported worldwide, distinguished by Italian style. the full taste and the naturalness of Italian oranges characterize this delicious non-alcoholic sparkling soft drink. to be enjoyed chilled"

 

old mout cider!!! there has been an increasing trend in summer cider over the last year, with more flavours than ever before there is something for everyone!! old mout is our absolute fav!! we served it at our spring collection launch on saturday in store, it always goes down a treat. we suggest stocking up on old mout for summer, the perfect accompliment for warm summer days! check out all their delish flavours here http://www.oldmoutcider.com/the-cider/
