Forget Me Not is a Paris and London based pattern design studio. We specialise in print
in the broadest sense and create both commercial and bespoke prints for the global fashion and interior industries.
Forget Me Not was founded by art director and designer Coco whose signature style mixes several techniques, combining old-school processes such as painting and hand-drawing with modern digital tools.
After five years studying fine arts in Paris, Coco forged a successful career as a communication consultant for French and Belgian up-and-coming fashion designers and leading couture houses. She went on to build a name for herself in London as a fashion illustrator, creating imagery for major retail brands and publications spanning both the independent and mainstream press, including Vogue, ELLE, Nylon and Muse, before creating Forget Me Not. She now works as a fashion, pattern and product designer as well as taking on commissions in illustration and art direction. Her signature style mixes several techniques, combining old-school processes such as painting and hand-drawing with modern digital tools and balances a mix of visual restraint and minimalism with a more leftfield and pop-friendly approach. Her work has been published in numerous publications including Taschen, Gestalten, Victionary and exhited in several exhibitions in London, Los Angeles and Barcelona.
