Founders, Cosmos Studio

DAVY CHAN + JEFF MANN

We have always loved the stories behind fashion, but have at the same time been shocked by the hidden polluting scenes surrounding it.  We believe human activities must be founded on the preservation of the commons; and the way that the fashion industry has been functioning needs to be radically challenged. Thus we have created Cosmos Studio, a local label that aims to reinvent the wheel with innovatively sustainable practices that the world has never seen.
