Born in Thailand, Coco spent her childhood plastering her bedroom walls with the pages of fashion magazines, dreaming of taking her place as a creator in the beautiful make-believe worlds found in each image. Since then she has become an award-winning graduate of the Academy of Art College in San Francisco, and a represented fashion designer with the ADA in Paris. With her unbreakable determination, she has been delighting fashionistas and buyers since launching her eponymous line in 2000, and her designs have been featured in Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Now on hiatus, Coco is taking time to embrace life, and accepting consulting work, and some freelance design projects as long as it allows her to travel and enjoy New York, where she now makes her home.
