Ashi Studio’s new collection, “The Girl On The Moon”, embraces the tormenting battle of longing to break free. Lunar shaped floor-length sleeves, embroidered to resemble the moon’s craters.

Rays of ethereal lights emitted by the collection’s pearly tones and a feast of intricate embroidery techniques leave her lovers in awe.
Born in Saudi Arabia in 1980, Mohammed Ashi solidified his talent for fashion in the prestigious ESMOD fashion school, France. His work caught the attention of the acclaimed Italian Vogue Editor, the late Franca Sozzani, who remained Ashi’s idol from that moment onwards, throughout his professional career. In 2007, he founded the Ashi Studio fashion house and quickly established a strong clientele with whom he shared a passion for intricate design, and exquisite craft and luxury.
The designer continuously attracts his followers with his understated colour palette, sculptor’s sense of silhouette and painter’s eye for decorative effect. Ashi embraces embroidery to tell fairy tales with a modern twist. He conjures up the Golden days through ruffles, feathers, delicate fabrics, and fringing. His recent collections, in neutral colours, are instant sensual classics. His designs are known to be intricately embellished and architecturally constructed, resulting in couture pieces that resemble wearable art.
