THE FOUNDER

COCO MASUDA

Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, Coco came to Vermont to study in 1979 and found her home in New York City the following year. A graduate of the Parsons School of Design, she has been a graphic designer, illustrator, gallery director, and artists' agent. After restructuring her late father's shipping and remittance business in Tokyo and selling the company to the direct competitor, she moved on to a career utilizing her language skills and business acumen.

She founded CoCollaborations in July 2017 bridging the businesses in Japan and the U.S. She, with collaborators, built and launched the global e-commerce site for BUNZABURO, a brand of Katayama Bunzaburo Shoten, a tie-dye specialty store in Kyoto established in 1915, in 2022, and started supporting every aspect of the brand's business. That defined yet another chapter in Coco's career. Coco officially became the Overseas Manager of the brand in the summer of 2023.

Coco divides her time between Tribeca (Manhattan/city) and Copake (Upstate/country), New York.
