+ + + SALE 30% OFF + + +
Own a piece from the next fashion icon. Be a part of fashion history as we are the NEXT great designers from Parson's the New School. Collecting a H+OKO piece is an investment for yourself and something you’ll wear for years to come.
We are the MODERN. We are FRESH. We are NOW.
H+OKO represents the new 9-5 for women and by 9-5 we mean 9AM to 5AM. As modern ladies we know the importance of looking chic at work meetings during the day as well as at cocktail parties at night. Our brand caters to the women with multi faceted schedules in need of quality wear that can easily transition from day to night.
Our designs fuse avant-garde details and minimalism as we record feelings and impressions throughout our journeys into the clothes like time capsules. Just like music inspires nostalgia of the past, H+OKO retains memories of two creative designers in various moments of their lives through the medium of apparel. We hope that our customers in H+OKO clothes can build their own happy memories and artistic time capsules.

Limited Edition Kickstarter Rewards!
H+OKO Premium Unisex Tees Available!
Colors: White, Black, Logo
Our kickstarter rewards feature limited edition accessories made with high quality fabrics such as silk or nylon that have been recycled from our collection. In general, it takes 30 and 24 years for nylon and silk to decompose on the ground. Backers in H+OKO will not only help launch a new ambitious fashion brand but contribute to an environmental movement to extend the Earth’s life as well. We want to raise awareness to the vast quantity of fabrics being wasted in the fashion industry by finding creative uses for these fabrics. Your rewards reduce pollution by using wasted fabrics that have already been processed heavily with chemicals and petroleum.
Investors will have a variety of choices per pledge. Among them are bow ties, hair bands and laptop cases, and totes that make use of these wasted fabrics.
Snake Laptop Case / SILVER or BLACK / Fits 13" or 15" / $150
Snake Tote / Each One Made Unique / $250
Snake Hairband / BLACK or SILVER / One Size / $75
Silk Bowtie / White-Print / One Size / $75
Kay Ha and Cin Oko, burning with passion and ambition to lead the fashion world one day, had first met at the Parsons the New School for Design, a school known for its world-class fashion design program and have partnered up to create the H+OKO brand.
Many leading fashion designers today have grown from diverse cultural backgrounds. In particular, those who have graduated from Parsons have been exposed to a variety of cultures and experiences that are reflected in their artistic vision.
Kay and Cynthia, both of whom have grown up in different countries under different cultures, have pursued their own brand identity through H+OKO that combines their lifetime experiences with fashion knowledge and skills built from their education in New York. With her fine arts background, Kay has been primarily responsible for creating patterns and details, choosing colors and designing the lines of each item, while Cynthia has focused on the overall creative direction of the brand. H+OKO is a brand that reflects the cultural fusion through the creative process in the form of apparel.
Your investment will be a great opportunity to discover the next generation fashion designers.
Fashion designers from Parsons with diverse backgrounds have galvanized the public with their own aesthetic vision and countless women to this day want to wear their clothes. H+OKO by Kay and Cynthia will debut in 2014.
We kindly ask for the opportunity to build H+OKO into a leading fashion brand that can produce beautiful clothes. Your investment in H+OKO will be an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to invest in beauty itself.
With a successful campaign we will fund production costs for backer gifts and looks. Production is the most costly expenditure in the overall process. With additional funds we will start on the next collection. If our $15,000 target is achieved, we will be able to showcase our collection at greater scale with more variety. Your investment will also provide us with an opportunity to procure diverse materials and experiment with our creative direction, and eventually produce more unique and artistic global brand clothes.
Risks and challenges
We only use high quality fabrics and unique designs as a result production costs are higher than normal. from the end of the Kickstarter, hence the April 2014 ship date.
We know timing is everything which is why we are keeping production here in New York City. After orders are in we will work quickly and efficiently to get orders out in a timely fashion reducing.
As seasoned designers we are knowledgeable of the risks and challenges when manufacturing. We work with a dedicated team and factories that are committed to fulfilling all orders on time. Shipping and production dates depend on customer. It is ideal to receive order information (size, color, etc.) from backers as soon as possible to avoid shipping delays. If unforeseen circumstances occur that may cause delays, we will be in direct communication with all my backers in order to resolve any issues. Our goal is for our customer to be happy so that they create amazing memories in a H+OKO piece.
We want you happy! All purchases are exchangeable for a different size. If we no longer carry that item in your size, we will work to get you a comparable item.
