Nicole, Designer and Founder of Coco Designs, grew up in Montgomery County, Maryland. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland and is an avid runner and fitness guru.
Joe, Marketing Director and Co-Founder of Coco Designs grew up in Bowie, Maryland. He graduated from Salisbury University and always dreamed of owning his own business.
When Nicole and Joe met they began to dream of their future and build a life together. One of their dreams was not to be slaves to the corporate world and thanks to Coco Designs they are living that dream.
That dream combined with Nicole's determination to work out comfortably and without worry lead to the creation of the Bra*Kette. With the help of Nicole's mom, Monica, they created the prototype for the Bra*Kette in July of 2010. After a few weeks of testing the bras with Joe's sister and tweaking the design the Bra*kette was ready for production. Coco Designs works to achieve a simple idea-that fitness and exercise should be fun, effective and worry free. The Bra*Kette is made to do just that. When wearing the Bra*Kette you can work out without having to worry about being uncomfortable or suffocated by your sports bra, as well as listen to your favorite music without the music player being in the way. The Bra*Kette which is made of nylon, lycra and spandex is cut in the United States and sewn in Costa Rica. The mission of Coco Designs is to provide Smart Apparel to Active Women.
