The first thing that comes to mind when we hear custom-made items is that it is expensive and unnecessary, or only for fashionistas with huge egos. Wrong!

As a young design label, what would you say sets you apart from the pack?

Affordability, unique styles and a personal touch.

Fashion is ever-evolving, how is the label doing so far with its collection?

We have made quite a few and we have more coming up, stay tuned.

Out of the designs you have made, which one do you feel was a masterpiece?

That is a tricky question since we love all of them; they have different themes and inspirations behind them.

Who would you say your designs are targeted towards?

For now, we target the middle class.

Your designs are made of high-quality fabrics. Where do you source them?

We source some of our fabrics locally and others we outsource. Lips sealed, we cannot give out our trade secrets.

Running a high-end fashion business can be challenging. What hurdles has Coto Château experienced?

Some challenges include inconsistency of sales. For instance, some months are good and others are slow, especially during with the pandemic.

How would you define the Coto Château woman?

Beautifully fierce.

The name sounds foreign. Tell us the inspiration behind it.

It is French. Chateau in French is a castle. Therefore, Coto Château in our own way is our fashion castle.

What plans do you have for the new year?

We have amazing, stylish and unique collections and fashion pieces coming up. Stay tuned.
