Colorado Co-op sells clothes and accessories that reflect quality, beauty, diversity and affordability with an emphasis on non-mainstream designers. We are here to help those women of all ages who still value fashion for its thrill and its beauty. We take pride in the work we do to bring you an assortment of designers and collections that you will not find anywhere else.

I'm Chris Colean, and I believe we are all unique, both inside and outside. But if we all dress the same I think we lose some of that.

For many years I was in what you might call "big fashion".

I was in charge of fashion advertising and trend forecasting for Macy's and worked as the Creative Director for a large fashion company in Hong Kong. I traveled the world, went to Paris to see the fashion shows, and oversaw the development and purchase of thousands and thousands of garments.

Eventually I left all that, in part so I could settle down and adopt a child.

But also because I wanted to be hands-on again, with what I love most helping women express themselves with confidence - helping women look great and feel wonderful in their clothes.

And helping women find those beautiful garments made by small designers outside the radar of big stores and bring them to my customers. To help women feel confident and have pride and passion about their wardrobe.

I started Colorado Co-op in 1996 to present an exciting, high quality repertoire of affordable contemporary designers many of them young and not yet widely known. My great joy is to help you meet those designers through their clothes, to feel their passion, to look fantastic and to feel that you are showing the world something unique about who you are.

Please, any time you want some fashion advice or need some help, give me a call or send me an email - I'd love to help you with your style.
