Designing had been a matter of creativity for her from her childhood years. After school she could always be found in her parents' studio/boutique, where she started sewing cloth behind a large industrial machine. At first it started with designing clothes for her dolls and very soon it moved on to designing clothes for herself. Over the years she got better and better at designing and also started helping her parents in their business. Meanwhile, she was able to use all the machines in the workshop independently. A very big experience for a little girl.
Sunshine 2012 was the year where the struggle began to find swimwear that suited her fashionable lifestyle. Back then, you actually had pretty few choices. The bourkinis looked like workout and rain suits. They looked funny, were not at all fashionable and there were no other options. Everything she was looking for in a modest bathing suit she could not find in others' designs. How could she enjoy the sun, sea and beach in a fashionable way that suited her lifestyle and in which she could also feel beautiful? After a long search, she decided to create her own design that met her needs and reflected her style, beliefs and philosophy.
Her enthusiasm was quickly aroused at the thought that her own design was not yet on the market, which also made it very exciting for her. So she got to work right away.
Inspired by her own wishes and needs for a fashion swimsuit that fit exactly into her lifestyle and with a sense of quality fabric, she started in her own home-studio. "My Bourkini was born" all ready to go on vacation with her.
Combined with her big flap hat and elegant black bourkini with pink fringes, she walked confidently onto the beach in 2012. All gazes turned towards her, everyone looked wide-eyed at this fashionable lady, who had made her lifestyle accessible to the beach in an elegant way. She felt free, enjoyed and was immensely proud!
