Within two weeks of first meeting Andrea Spratt, the owner and designer of the Kuccon fashion label, I connected her with the Echo Park industrial space which became the first Kucoon studio in 2005. Since then, I’ve helped evolve Kucoon’s digital strategy as the line has become a known entity within Los Angeles fashion. Kucoon Designs debuted its first runway show at LA Fashion Week in 2010.
Sidenote: In 2006, I was privileged to participate in a Kucoon show at an underground warehouse party in Downtown L.A. I performed a poem I’d written for the show’s opening while made up as an owl.
