The design duo behind label Mok Theorem seem to know a thing or two about geometry. The risqué zig-zag lines across the hip-bone and the strategic triangle cut-outs around the waist aren’t part of a random matrix, they’re calculated design decisions which equal a winning formula.
Behind these intricate design details are sisters Grace and Gloria Mok, two self-taught sewers who walked away from the marketing industry to make clever clothes for smart consumers. And its paying off. Their most recent offering is a thoughtful resort collection entitled Hullaballoo Kid. Despite the name, Hullaballo is no child’s play – the neon orange and fuchsia may be playful but the light silks and cuff-to-collar details are for wise girls who appreciate design-driven pieces.
To mix things up a bit, Mok Theorem’s clinical precision is offset with a bit of chaos theory. You can see it in the draping necklines and geometric frills, not to mention their seductive focus on the waist – this is ‘resort wear’ after all! Their versatile fabric choices, cotton/silk and modal/spandex, also make Mok Theorem a seamless wardrobe addition for hot Queenslanders and Swedish style queens alike. That’s quite a complex equation to achieve.
