Coogi was first founded in 1969 by an Australian fashion designer named Jacky Taranto from Toorak, Melbourne. He planned to sell his clothing line, which is then called as Cuggi, to American tourists that visits Australia. This plan became a success when the Notorious B.I.G noticed the unique and vibrant colors of every Cuggi clothing line. This then became of the the hip hop artist's inspiration to create a new single that featured the brand.
This became the start of the continual success of the brand. And to keep with traditional Australian culture, the brand name Cuggi was changed to Coogi in 1987, to sound more like an indigenous Australian name. While most famous for its textured knitwear in the 1980s, the brand was popularized in the U.S. as urban hip-hop wear. In addition to clothing, the company's 1992 international trademark filing registered the brand for cosmetics and toiletries, leather, furniture, textiles, and toys.

Though Coogi became popular and gained more profit because of its huge demands coming from the US urban community, Jacky Taranto felt that his problems with debts are only going to end if he sells the rights of his clothing line to other companies. This was also because of the a terrorist attack that happened September 11, 2001 that led the brand struggling. The brand was then purchased by a joint U.S venture, Coogi Partners LLC, in 2002.
After a year, in 2003, Coogi was then acquired by the Weisfeld group and their mission was to create an upscale clothing for high end appeal. They chose to work with the design houses in Milan and New York to produce the look they felt was important for the urban young man today.
