Mo Hua (Hou Xiaolin)

Mo Hua (Designer of MOHUA), a graduate of a renowned medical school in China, boasts a rich background of living abroad. This exposure has allowed her to skillfully fuse mainstream Western elements with Eastern traditional culture in her creations. Pledging to uphold originality, she employs clothing as a conduit to carry forward ethnic symbols through Chinese handicraft techniques (intangible cultural heritage), namely handcrafted embroidery, plant-derived hand dyeing, and hand-painted art. By staying tuned in to current trends and encapsulating the “cultural stories behind clothing”, she aims to foster cultural confidence and share the narrative of China through her actions.
