curleebikini

I founded CurleeBikini in 2009. Under this wholly sustainable label, I completed the designs, patterning, and sewing for each custom, made-to-order swimsuit. Over a period of 5 years, I built repeat clientele, participated in fashion shows and trade shows around the US and Canada, and applied my design degree skill set to build a grassroots bespoke business.

CurleeBikini was a qualified Fellowship 500 member of the Ethical Fashion Forum for multiple years running. Upon moving the business from Los Angeles to Austin, in 2014, I was awarded the Austin Fashion Fund by Austin Fashion Week (a.k.a. Fashion X Austin), and was named Austin's Most Talented Designer.
