Meet Our Founder
So, let me introduce myself, I am Amy I was born in Austria and live in the UK. I’m obsessed with crime novels, series, films anything I can get my hands on! (I think I was a detective in my previous life)
I graduated in 2018 studying Fashion design, I worked in the fashion industry for a year, started my MA studying Fashion Marketing focussing on sustainability in 2019 and graduated at the end of 2020, I launched KOHR in June 2020 during a pandemic (aah!)
I haven’t always wanted my own business, actually I was rather against it in the beginning, because the fashion industry is such an overcrowded market. I kind of started to get the 'ick' for fashion during my 3rd year of university, I soon realised that it didn’t have much meaning or substance and I wasn’t really taught how toxic the industry was. I didn’t even make much of a break into the industry, until I realised this isn’t something I wanted to do. It was boring, repetitive and funnily enough not really creative. However, I still loved fashion itself and wanted to create something that I enjoyed doing, whilst bringing some good into the industry. This was when I first started exploring sustainability. I watched lots of documentaries such as ‘The True Cost’, read books and researched into anything I could find. I finally decided there is a place for me in the industry with my own brand fitting into a gap in the market I discovered.
