MoiMoi Barcelona is a fashion label by the young Spanish fashion designer Raquel Alonso Miranda. I am very impressed that she ventured the step of establishing her own fashion label in 2008. By now she launched her own website and opens a pop-up store in Helsinki between the 1st and 31st of July.
How did everything start? Raquel first studied fine arts at the University of Vigo, Spain. During her studies, she went to Finland for an exchange program and focussed on clothing and textile design. In Finland, she discovered her love for Scandinavia and decided to come back again someday. Back in Spain, she worked in the sales department of an international showroom in Barcelona and completed a postgraduate’s degree in Fashion Business Management at University Pompeu de Fabra. For her final thesis, she developed the Label MoiMoi Barcelona.
At the moment she lives in Finland again. She started as a design intern at IVANAhelsinki and decided to stay in Helsinki for launching her label MoiMoi Barcelona.
Besides her clothing line, Raquel created a jewellery collection for Spring/Summer 2010 which consists of fine necklaces with beautiful little pendants. In addition to this, she published a beach bag collection. Every single piece of her creations is inspired by influences of her homeland Spain and the new influences of Finland. The light, colourful tones of her creations and the fine jewellery convey a warm, optimistic and cheerful mood. The pieces give us the feeling of gorgeous sunny summer days. Raquel herself says about MoiMoi Barcelona: „It represents the Mediterranean taste with a fresh and energetic spirit. The aroma of the sand and warm summer nights.“
