Kosi Kosi

Design, Direction and Photography

In collaboration with Kane Barri and what was originally a final university graduate piece — Kosi Kosi grew to have over 30 stockists Australia wide and was also sold internationally via department store TJX. Each collection was kept completely 'in-house' — everything from fashion design, photography, liaising with manufactures, PR, sales & marketing etc (only to list a few!). We opened a flagship store in our home town of Bendigo called 'The Meadow', held collection launch parties, sponsored local creative and fashion events and were also guest speakers at La Trobe University to bidding fashion students.
