Mocha’s story started in 2003 when Nicki, a professional graphic designer turned jewellery maker started selling her handmade pieces at Camberwell Market on Sundays. Nicki’s passion and creativity, combined with her partner Dotan’s business experience, made this young couple a phenomenal duo. Their successful jewellery collection was soon rebranded as Mocha, named after Nicki’s favourite hot beverage.
An opportunity presented itself at Westfield Southland in 2006, and the couple quit their day jobs and opened Mocha’s first pop-up stall. Soon after, Mocha established its first boutique at Westfield Doncaster in October 2008, embellished with its now iconic copper fixtures and cascade chain ceiling. Fast forward to 2020 and this small family business has now expanded to 7 stores in Melbourne’s most iconic shopping centres, along with concession stores at multiple Myer locations, with a staff base of more than 50 valued team members.
