Still Stylish & Original . Welcome to New Look Cocoove

Formerly known as CoCo VeVe
Excited in Announcing the new look name Cocoove ,pronounced Co coo ve.

I decided to re-brand in order to trade mark and build my brand without opposition. The brands Ethics and design ethos remain the same. Still stylish and original just a brand new name and logo.

It was important to me to keep the names of my nieces in the title as they have grown to love the idea that they are part of the brand as do all the family who each have pieces in the collections named after them. As my niece shared with her class at show and tell last year .”Hello my name is Verity, but my family call me VeVe. When I grow up I’m going to work with My Auntie Ria .She designs dresses and  I’m going to design Hats”. VeVe already had a real sense of belonging to the brand and who knows she may one day want to design Hats for Cocoove .

The name  needed to be as original as the clothing, stylish and stand out. A name that is instantly recognisable and connected to the brand.

About CoCoove

Philosophy

Believing that it is essential to put your heart into everything you do. Believing you should do what you are good at and what you are passionate about. I’m passionate about creating beautiful clothing for women. I source the majority of fabrics and manufacture all  garments within the UK. Inspired by making changes and paving a way in fashion. I do this by asking questions, whilst producing stylish clothing which are produced ethically.

New Season Fashion Shoot

I had the privilege of working last month with a super talented and creative team on my new season campaign for cocoveve.uk .

Planning


So much forward planning goes in before the day of the shoot, creating mood boards of how I want the new collection to look. Hoping the photography team, mua,model all see the vision I have and can interpret, to take it to the next level in their field of expertise.

Remember why you started

Day of the Fashion shoot


Vessel Studio in Liverpool was the venue for the day. As everyone arrived and began setting up, Vik from Sane Seven discussed further with me how I wanted the images to look and feel. So much more goes into creating that perfect shot than just your model standing in front of a lens and clicking away with the camera . Mood,Lighting,Colour,Attitude.

Amanda Borg was MUA . Her brief was to create a natural look with tousled hair for model Lauren Ianson.

                                                     TEAM                                                                                             Together  Everyone  Achieves  More

Time to shoot !

Model Lauren was prepped, preened and ready to go. It was an energetic shoot with lots of movement. Marius( Sane Seven) guided Lauren through her positions and shots . I watched on at the monitor loving the images captured with each pose.

Creative people are curious,flexible,persistent,and independent

with tremendous spirit of adventure.
