Moose Cow Fish is a Melbourne based business founded in 2016 by then a 15 year old Alex Nairn. The original Moose Cow Fish products included handmade women's silk slip dresses and tops handmade by Alex in her spare time and on school holidays.
After 6 months of hand making clothes, Moose Cow Fish slipped between the cracks when Alex’s focused switched to her school commitments and other things that 16 year olds do!
Fast forward 4 years to the end of 2019 and Moose Cow Fish was reborn, this time as an active streetwear brand! After finishing school and settling into university, Alex was searching for an outlet other than regular study that incorporated her love and passion for health and fitness and Moose Cow Fish was reborn as an active streetwear brand.
The aim of Moose Cow Fish is to provide customers with comfortable, sleek and stylish active-street wear, that can be worn both to the gym and during everyday life. Moose Cow Fish is made for strong, bold, active, independent women, of all shapes and sizes, that want to feel confident and comfortable in their activewear!
Now to answer the burning question, what does Moose Cow Fish actually mean?! The name Moose Cow Fish originated when Alex's younger brother used to sing the 'Llama song', which ends with the words 'Moose Cow Fish'. Her brother, Charlie, at a young age had very chubby cheeks and he used to act out the 'Moose Cow Fish', using his hands, squishing his chubby cheeks. The whole family used to find it hilarious and the words 'Moose Cow Fish' just stuck!
