Our mission at KOCH is to get girls to make their mark on the world by being joymakers and risktakers. I am not from the fashion world and wanted to create a place and world that believed that the girl in the clothing was more important than the clothing and for too long fashion sent a message that didn’t resonate with me. I wanted to build a community that co-created together and encouraged people to be a force for good so that good could come to them. I believe that ordinary people can do extraordinary things and in order to do this you have to believe in yourself and the world at large. You need vision and faith that life is working for you always and with this vision you must apply determination, laughter and resilience.
