MOKO is an interdisciplinary platform for fashion research. MOKO's aim is to gather, generate and communicate knowledge within the field of fashion through research, conferences, media and web. MOKO's primary focus in on how to improve and better understand the financial and cultural circuits of fashion through network, knowledge sharing, and research.
MOKO works across public and private institutions within design, fashion, strategy, marketing and media. MOKO is organized as a collaboration between The Danish Museum of Art & Design, Designskolen Kolding, Center for Designforskning and Danmarks Designskole.
MOKO is organized with a steering committee, a project manager and a number of research projects. The day-to-day managing is handled by head of research at Danmarks Designskole, and the projects take place at the partaking institutions, companies and other players in the cultural and financial landscape of fashion. Report In January 2006, MOKO published a report on the potentials in fashion research. The report gathers knowledge, perspectives and potentials from a wide section of the Danish fashion world: From fashion empires in Jutland and Amager to small and medium sized fashion companies in Copenhagen. From government reports to education- and research conferences, from patent lawyers, design strategists and fashion experts to trend companies and Eksportrådet. The report is in the process of being translated into English.
