"Materials can teach us a great deal about other cultures; colours, patterns and textures are a powerful non-verbal tool of communication."
Cotilda - the brand
‘African-Inspired Fashion for Urban Taste’
At ‘Cotilda’ we provide a tailored, personalised shopping experience that is as individual and unique as our clients’ style.
Proud to be independently run and owned, our online clothing platform specialises in creating both urban designs for the ready-to-wear market, alongside customisable and bespoke pieces, available upon request.
Established in 2015, Cotilda is a celebration of culture and fashion. Drawing inspiration from African and Western prints, we believe in being loud in print and subtle in design to create a statement of urban fashion that is fresh, modern and proud.
How Cotilda Works: 'Personalise your shopping experience'
Ready-to-wear: A chicer way to ‘click and collect’! Browse, select your size and just wait for your product to be posted to you.
Customisable: Choose from our selected sizes or enter your measurements to personalise a pre-designed product to be made for you. Note: Please allow 2-4 week for this service.
Bespoke service: Discover our range of classically cut jackets and dresses. Shop from the available shapes on display and follow the ‘How it works’ guide on placing an order. Or contact us for more information.
