I recalled that the best times of my life were spent in a bikini…so I thought about working on something that truly made me happy. It was something I truly believed in, thus I started working on designing a swimsuit line.
Why design swimsuits?
It’s not the bikini, but what the bikini represents: confidence, strength, adventure, beauty, memories, laughing till you cry, road trips, airplane tickets, bug bites, dirty hair, campfires, cheers-ing, arriving with a thousand things on your mind, and departing without a care in the world. A Boys + Arrows Bikini represents playing hard, finishing strong, falling in love, smelling the flowers and creating an experience that leaves a mark.
What is the Boys and Arrows market? Who do you design for and why?
The Boys + Arrows Brand goes out to all of the girls, ladies and women who are ready to give guys a run for their money, let go of their fears, and show the world their beautiful strength and free spirit. I want girls to live, love, play with fire, boys and arrows. We design for girls who admire the outcast and who aren’t afraid to stand out.
Can you tell us about the fabrics you use in your designs? What are its features?
All my fabrics are the finest quality imported from Italy. Our prints are all custom designed in house, and still printed on Italian Lycra.
What about the production process? Can you share some highlights?
Everything is made here in the USA. I have been so fortunate to find the best in the business, from my cutting house to my sewers to my pattern maker. Production is intense. There are so many more steps and things to keep track of then you would ever think!
How about the 2014 line? Can you tell us a bit about what to expect and what inspired its designs?
For the 2014 collection, Boys + Arrows is going in a very “dysfunctional romance” kind of direction. We are bringing in a lot of new bodies that we are really excited about! We are also having a lot of fun with new unexpected prints. Stay tuned!
How about the current line?
This current line is All American, for the traveler, the adventure seeker, and of course the trouble maker. This line is something you won’t ever want to take off.
