COCOAMATO, FOUNDER/CREATIVE DIRECTOR/DESIGNER
High fashion streetwear with a somewhat genderless approach to getting dressed.
Born and raised in Southern California and living in New York City, Amy Amato is set to live the bi-coastal dream. Her “eternal youth” approach to life is sincere and uncompromising. The result of a varied background and the daily inspiration of east coast / west coast -- her work is evocative of where the beach meets the streets.

Q & A
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
My smile and that I am relentless in my work.
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST BUSINESS NEED?
Mentorship by way of business strategizing, growth and planning. Working with someone who is directly connected to the clothing industry that knows the “business side” of things. And then money of course.
WHAT DOES BEING LIBERATED MEAN TO YOU?
Bringing COCOAMATO to life the way I see and feel it. Basically doing what I want, when I want, how I want in a successful way so long as I am creating lasting ties and bringing my family and friends along for the fun and rides. So far it’s working? Haha.
