Po Swim by Ava Frati

CONFIDENCE AND BEAUTY ARE TWO FACTORS THAT I ADMIRE MOST IN PEOPLE. CONFIDENCE IS WHAT MAKES A GIRL PUT A BIKINI ON AND FLAUNT HER NATURAL, GORGEOUS BODY. IF YOU HAVE CONFIDENCE, YOU HAVE BEAUTY. MY DESIGNS AND CREATIONS ARE FOR THE CONFIDENT AND COURAGEOUS TO ROCK, FROM THE SIMPLEST OF PIECES TO THE MOST INTRICATE.

I’VE BEEN IN LOVE WITH SWIMWEAR SINCE I WAS YOUNG.  GROWING UP IN A BIG CITY WITH THE ADVANTAGE OF A BEACH, MIAMI HAS INFLUENCED HOW I CAME TO REALIZE THE NEED FOR SIMPLE AND CHIC PATTERNS, COLORS, AND STYLES. THIS QUEST LED ME TO DESIGN MY OWN SWIM COLLECTION.

Pō SWIM BEGAN ON A SKETCH PAD DURING THE SUMMER OF 2015. I SKETCHED AND MEASURED BAND SIZES, STRING LENGTHS, AND ALTERED MY OWN BIKINIS. FINALLY, AT 15 YEARS OLD, IN THE SUMMER OF 2017, I MADE MY LAUNCH OF Pō SWIM.

I AM GRATEFUL THAT MY MOM, STACY AND MY DAD, MARIO BELIEVED IN MY VISION AND DESIGNS. THEY SAW TO IT THAT MY SKETCHES BECAME Pō SWIM. ALSO, I’D LIKE TO GIVE THANKS TO ALL MY FRIENDS WHO I BOTHER ALL THE TIME, ASKING 'WHICH PATTERN THEY LIKE?'  OR 'HOW THE WEBSITE LOOKS?' I’M VERY THANKFUL FOR ALL THE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE  BECAUSE WITHOUT THEM, I WOULDN’T BE LIVING THIS DREAM.
