Swimwear, Intimates and Apparel Designer


I fell in love with sewing around age 6 and spent my childhood carefully curating my mother’s wardrobe and designing clothing for my dolls.

As a southern California native, my summer uniform consisted primarily of a bikini. However, I still struggled to find a suit that embodied three key elements; fit, fabrication, and textile design. After graduating high school, I spent a year living in Europe and backpacking through Central America where I discovered my true calling as a designer.

While the art of creating swimwear from pattern to finish has become less common, I have honed my skills through a series of pattern-making classes, consulting with veterans of the trade, and finally at a nine-week intensive bra-making course, taught by one of the original bra-making pattern experts. 

My business, Rosa Swim, was born after popular demand for the reversible, one offs, constructed from unconventional fabrics. My custom swimwear has been featured in multiple global campaigns, such as Reef and Teva, as well as several issues of Surfing magazine swimsuit issue, and Teen Vogue. 

In addition to running my own business, I have worked in the apparel industry in a range of categories including activewear, novelty knits, and wovens and was involved throughout the entire development process; designing, creating and maintaining tech packs, communicating with overseas vendors, material sourcing, and taking part in fit sessions. 

I am looking to join a team of hard-working individuals where my love for color and design, and eagerness to learn can be put to good use.
