We are thrilled to announce that our beautiful LA ISLA “Crochet Boho” and “Tribe Boho” bikinis have been featured in the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue! Every time we get a feature in Sports Illustrated Swim it always feels like it’s the first time, and we love that feeling. When so many LA ISLA team members dedicate so much time and effort into making beautiful products, it is incredibly rewarding to see them featured and displayed in such a respectable publication. This year we had the good fortune of being feature on supermodels Kelly Gale and Hannah Jeter, two absolutely jaw dropping women who wore our suits perfectly.

We are thankful that Sports Illustrated Swim continues to support creativity, artistic expression and very empowering women. Thank you for continuing to make our bikini dreams come true!

Unlike many apparel companies, mine was started with no investors and I had to bootstrap it every step of the way. It has not been easy and I hope that my experiences can help at least a few of you with your apparel venture. I look forward to telling you my own story on another opportunity since I know that my mistakes and successes will indeed help others in their journey. For now, I will highlight some steps which will help you get started in this exciting business. -> Read more
