What is your Random Act of Creativity ?
Coco Shop was founded in Antigua in 1949 by a brother and sister with the goal of giving local artisans a place to sell their work. Their printed cotton clothing, all made on island, was treasured and their business grew to two island stores that they maintained for sixty years.
My grandparents started spending significant time in Antigua in the 1950s, allowing my father and then me to grow up with the company. After years on the business side of the retail industry, I relaunched Coco Shop in 2019.
What is your creative mission?
My goal is to renew the founders’ pledge to champion Antiguan artists, while introducing the brand to a wider audience.
