Pamela Levenson

Our Story

Pamela Levenson grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia and has worked in the garment industry for the past 20 years. This experience has provided her opportunities to work for Guess? Jeans in Los Angeles and Paris, as well as several large clothing companies in Oregon.

"I have always had a passion for 40’s and 1950’s Swimwear designs.  Reaching back to those eras for inspiration, I seek to create swim styles with the influence of days gone by with the convenience of today’s fabric innovations and modern bathing suit construction methods.

My first swim suit was created because I could not find a swimsuit I LOVED; a bathing suit that was fun, flattering and fashionable, so..... I decided to go off and make one (actually three or four) for myself. 

Ten years later I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue to make swimwear that I love, it is very rewarding that many of you out there enjoy my styles too and many thanks to YOU for supporting me as an independent swimwear designer.

I hope you wear your swimsuit somewhere fun and please send photos or post to our Facebook page of you in your suits we love to see happy customers."
