Trench Closet: @Coco Bassey

“I’m Nigerian, and my professional background is in product and digital marketing” ~ Coco Bassey

A little about the moment that Coco’s first realized her passion for fashion:

Probably in 3rd grade, when my friends and I spent every sleepover playing dress-up and lip-syncing in front of the mirror. It was so fun to experiment with different styles, and it was my foray into using fashion as a form of self-expression

Favorite Brand?


The place of fashion in Coco’s life:

If there’s one thing fashion has inspired me to do, it’s to put purpose behind everything! Just like I take time to plan an outfit, it’s also important for me to place value on my time, relationships and personal development. To me, style is more than the clothes… it starts from within, so being more intentional about every other part of my life has really helped me to grow as a person.

My checkered trench coat! It’s the one thing I wear EVERY fall, which is my favorite season of the year

Coco’s signature piece

We asked Coco, “ if you could trade your entire closet with any woman in the world, who would it be?”

Victoria Beckham

“And would you actually do it?”


And, speaking of grabbing someone’s style from their closet, many of the Trench members (aka Trenchies) state that one of the things they like most about being part of the Never Ending Closet community is being fashionable while being very environmentally conscious and sustainable.

Coco told us about the meaning of fashion sustainability to her.

Sustainability in fashion is all about investing in pieces that truly work for you, instead of opting into seasonal trends that change so quickly.

And to wrap up, a fun fact about Coco:

I LOVE cooking, and I can probably beat just about anyone when it comes to eating spicy food.
