British fashion designer Yashka Moore works to clothe the mind through exploring the relationship between space, objects and the architecture of the psyche.
Yashka’s working partnership with Thor Schuitemaker, YASHKATHOR hats, were exhibited and proudly stocked internationally; stockists including at Other/Shop (UK), Sauvage (Kazakhstan), Modnaya Tochka & Day/Night (Russia) and More is Love (online). Collaborations included hats for Ria Keburia and Agi & Sam.
Yashka’s designs have been worn by beautiful people including Rebecca Hall, Jess Glyne & Leonard Cohen and were recently presented at the British Ambassador’s residence in Japan representing the best of British fashion. Yashka Moore launched her solo designs at Pitti Uomo in 2016 and the Designer Showrooms at London Fashion Week in 2016 with support from the British Fashion Council. Collection 001, Yashka’s slowly evolving womenswear, is her debut ready to wear collection.
Yashka is also currently working with the composer Richard Melkonian in collaboration with Guildhall and the Royal Opera House to create Yashka Moore opera.
About the Brand
Radically luxurious British based conceptual fashion brand Yashka Moore redresses the mind by offering up garments to clothe us in our journeys through the inner and outer worlds.
Using British hand woven wools, the lightest of cottons and innovative weaving techniques developed in the London based studio, Yashka Moore caters to women who wish to dress thoughtfully.
Yashka says ‘after working with Guram (Gvasalia) on YASHKATHOR hats, I realised we had a natural affinity with Georgia.’ It was a natural progression to launch Collection 001, the designer’s first ready to wear collection, in Tbilisi.
Yashka Moore holds that clothing is psychoactive. Through wearing garments, we can anchor ourselves into new states of being or dismantle current states of affairs. Ancient priestesses wove the world into being on their looms. The brand’s ‘Collection 001’ makes use of unstable half-garments which allow their wearers to weave their own clothing onto their bodies.
