What do you love about designing swimwear?

I like making bathing suits that are appropriate, but are still fun and sexy.


Tell us a bit about your current collection?

My Spring 2014 collection is comprised of simple black, white, yellow and polka dots designs. Less is more.


Where do you look for inspiration? 

I like to look back at Marilyn Monroe's style for inspiration. She was sexy without showing too much.


Who do you think has the best beach body? (Male and Female)

Christie Brinkley!


What are 3 key items you would pair with your swimsuits?

Callula Lillibelle cover-ups, beach hat and sunglasses.
