MOEHAU means peaceful dream in Tahitian and yet she has always walked inevitably on the way to her visions, shaping her own truth and reality in order to meet her dreams.
As far as she can remember, being creative has always been an important part of her life. Whether it be painting all over her walls, or drawing anywhere she could, make a whole piece of art out a bouquet of flowers, but also make fine and elegant clothing from a simple pareo…
She studied Art in Paris. And then it came to do with designing clothes. Only once she moved in Bali that she seriously thought of launching her own clothing line, until she finally established EIMEO.
” I love doing my job because every day is different. Working in Fashion industry is very challenging. Guess i love this dynamic too. But mostly : creating worlds and making a living out of it i can call myself lucky! ”
EIMEO not only helps her to express her creativity but also to share her love for her home island, the Tahitian culture and her profound admiration for Polynesian women.
” The beauty, the energy of my country is continuously inspiring. Tahitian womanhood inspires me as well. I recall my grandma’s allure, how elegant she was! You could feel her strength and ” mana ” just looking at her. It was different times and different definition of Beauty and hence this sense of vintage in our style. “ (Moehau explains, feeling nostalgic.)
It seems that EIMEO’s future are in the hands of women. Indeed this company is also a matter of sisterhood.
Moehau makes a point to advocate for other women and feel more connected with them.
” Enrolling more women to grow EIMEO and seeing how proud and committed they are to the work is rewarding.”
Hopefully EIMEO will set an example of sustainable company in which co-workers enjoy themselves doing their job. She encourages every woman and Polynesian women in particular to listen to their strong intuition and pave their way to full realization, as she has done herself.
