It was an honor and privilege to spend time with Minnesota’s own Corianna & Brianna Dotson, 2 of the industry’s hottest sunwear designers taking the fashion world by storm. They have created a well-deserved buzz, with celebrities Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Serena Williams and the late Prince (among others) donning their latest collections. The twin sisters, best known as Coco & Breezy, have an unparalleled dedication and drive, and are motivated by family and inspired by music and story lines.

In addition to their compelling eyewear, Coco & Breezy are sharp business entrepreneurs, using their ambition, experiences and hard work to create their brand, now based in Brooklyn, NY. With over 13,000 followers on Facebook, 68,000 followers on Instagram, 19,000 followers on Twitter, they have a strong social media presence. They’ve also been featured in dozens of magazines including Cosmopolitan, InStyle, WWD and Glamour.

Known for their hip clothes, funky hair, tattoos and piercings, Coco & Breezy made a decision to be positive role models for kids. Misunderstood and shy while growing up in Apple Valley, MN, they have a passion for helping kids looking to find their way. Frequent speakers at schools, the twins share their message of taking risks, working hard and embracing who you are.

When creating their fashion sunwear, they take their own advice: Be You. They are proud to take risks, be themselves, work hard, have a positive mindset and let their creativity flow. Now that is an inspiring brand…the Coco & Breezy brand!
