As a young girl, Tasia was always passionate about fashion, she has done several modeling swimwear shoots and worked close with lingerie designers. Some things fit well while some didn’t and more than most the swimwear could have complemented the body a lot better and could have been much more enticing and fashionable. This inspired her to create trendy and fashionable swimwear that is hard to find and women will absolutely love.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No the road has been really tough. For us the most difficult part about the business is finding people that are honest and do what they say they will do for us. But as time went on we learned how to be careful and take our time when interviewing someone who will potentiality work for us or with us. But we look at this as a growing experience and move on, we have learned from every obstacle and challenges. One of the biggest challenges was to find a manufacturer to produce our swimwear. That was the worst on so many levels. That is why we decided to change gears and do everything ourselves. we feel that our clients appreciate it more.
