In September 2015, Ada launched a capsule collection in collaboration with the Swedish retailer, & Other Stories, to great success in which highlighted Ada’s own intuitive vision of feminine authenticity and identity.
After collaborating with many successful brands, Ada caught the attention of Cesare Paciotti's chief executive Marco Calcinaro, who contacted her after seeing a customized shoe she had created for street-luxe label Public School and hired her to revamp its women’s footwear. In June 2017, Ada launched her Cinderella-inspired capsule collection with the brand to critical acclaim.
After the successful launch, Ada’s own label, Midnight 00 was born in spring of 2019, founded together with Marco Calcinaro. Midnight 00 by Ada Kokosar is known for its bold and romantic expression of Cinderella's glass slipper, inspired by childhood fairytales and the opulence found in the era of Marie Antoinette. Midnight 00 will be launching its second season later this year.
Ada currently resides between New York city and Milan.
