@ VOL 28
ON NOV 11, 2016
Koa Johnson is perhaps best known for his line of bridal and formal gowns made under the brand bearing an abbreviation of his name, Kojo Couture. Each of Johnson’s collections includes one dress created with unconventional materials and references Hawaiian history or material culture, interpreted through the lens of avant-garde fashion. Koa goes back and forth between his Maui home and Oahu, his home away from home. You can find his collections online at kojocoutour.com and on instagram at kojocouture.
