Goodbye For Now
I’ve been back and forth over this decision for the past year, trying all sorts of things to avoid confronting it, but it’s finally clear to me that I need to put Kokomo to rest for now.
The reasons are circumstantial and we all know them too well by now, so I’ll just say this:
At this point I don’t know if I’ll return to it, but with so much uncertainty around, who actually knows anything anymore. What I do know is that I’ve loved making these clothes for you all and seeing you in these designs has given me so many moments of real joy.
But with things as they are I need to say goodbye, for now. And maybe forever. I’ve got to apply myself to something that gives at least as much as it takes.
Thank you all for the love and support over the past years. It has meant so much! Please continue to support those small brands out there who need it - I promise you they appreciate every single gesture.
My shop and online store will be trading until the end of August 2021. Everything will be on sale including stock from previous seasons, samples and rejects. Most pieces will be made available to shop online with a few additional one off items and samples that can be purchased in store only.
And then, who knows?
