Colèchi is a place where people can learn, collaborate and engage with others on their creative journey. Colèchi is built on the concept of knowledge sharing. In 2016 we started as a Meetup group designed to connect creatives who have business ideas. The group evolved into monthly events attracting creatives at all levels across fashion. This is when we realised that fashion and creative education does not reflect the reality of being a multidisciplinary creative. Colèchi was formed in 2018 to be an alternative learning platform for young people to access the industry and to encourage change within fashion by being a space for new voices. Since our inception, we continue to offer events, socials and meetups to our growing community of independent starters. We have also introduced services to help brands reach their goals.
Colèchi was founded by sisters Piarvé and Tina.
With over 7 years in marketing, I quickly realised the holes with the support available for people starting a business in the creative sector, especially fashion. Through Colèchi we are providing information for those who are unapologetically changing the industry for the better.
Breaking into fashion whilst studying a BA in History and Politics exposed the complexities of navigating the creative sector. After completing a masters in Curation at CSM, I use Colèchi as a progressive platform to help multifaceted creatives position themselves in fashion.
