YEMAYA SWIMWEAR & THE DESIGNER

YEMAYA IS INSPIRED BY THE DESIGNER’S SOUTH AMERICAN ROOTS AND HER LIFE ADVENTURES.  YEMAYA TRULY DEFINES THAT ADVENTUROUS CARE FREE LIFESTYLE.  IT’S A LINE THAT FOCUSES ON COMFORT AND FIT BUT WITHOUT LOSING IT’S FASHIONABLE EDGE.  EVERY PIECE CAN BE MIX AND MATCHED WITH EACH OTHER.  SO DEPENDING ON YOUR STYLE OR LIKING, YOU CAN FIND THAT PERFECT SUIT FOR YOU.  A COMBINATION OF LUSCIOUS FABRIC, UNIQUE DESIGNS, AND EXTRAORDINARY COMFORT AND FIT, GENERATES THE ULTIMATE LOVE AFFAIR.

 CARLA PALLARES, OWNER AND DESIGNER GREW UP IN A SOUTH AMERICAN HOUSEHOLD AND RAISED ALONG THE BEACH IN SOUTH FLORIDA, HER LOVE FOR THE TROPICAL LIFESTYLE IS NATURALLY OBVIOUS.  HAVING EXPERIENCE AS A CELEBRITY FASHION STYLIST EARLY IN HER CAREER, HER LOVE FOR FASHION ONLY GOT STRONGER. SHE GREW UP WATCHING HER MOTHER MAKE CLOTHES AND HOME ACCESSORIES BY HAND, SPECIALIZING IN CROCHET.  GETTING HER CREATIVENESS FROM HER MOTHER AND BUSINESS MIND FROM HER FATHER, SHE WAS CONFIDENT IN STARTING HER BRAND ON HER OWN.  EARNING A DEGREE IN MARKETING AND FASHION DESIGN GAVE HER EVEN MORE OF A DESIRE TO START HER OWN LINE. AFTER WORKING IN ALL AREAS OF THE FASHION INDUSTRY SHE DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO LIVE HER PASSION. DESIGNING IS WHAT TRULY MAKES HER HAPPY AND SEEING EVERYDAY WOMEN SUN BATHE, TO ATHLETIC WOMEN SURFING AWAY IN HER SUITS IS WHAT SHE DREAMS ABOUT.

“YEMAYA. Mother of the fishes, mermaid or simply a beautiful woman standing amidst the waves. She is the Goddess of the Ocean.”

CARLA GETS HER INSPIRATION FROM HER PARAGUAYAN AND SPANISH ROOTS AND HER LOVE FOR TRAVELING.  BEING A KINI ADDICT AND LIVING IN A BIKINI MOST OF HER LIFE, SHE NEVER FELT TRULY COMFORTABLE IN HER SUIT. SHE BEGAN TO NOTICE HOW SHE WASN’T THE ONLY ONE.  HAVING WORKED WITH FEMALES OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES THROUGH OUT THE YEARS, SHE NOTICED HOW HARD IT WAS TO FIND A GREAT SUIT THAT FELT GOOD TO BE IN.

THEN YEMAYA SWIMWEAR WAS BORN.  YEMAYA IS MADE FOR THAT STYLISH WOMAN THAT WANTS TO FEEL COMFORTABLE IN HER OWN SKIN.  TRAVELING TO HER HOMELAND OF PARAGUAY AND OTHER AMAZING PLACES, HAS GIVEN HER INSPIRATION FOR EACH YEMAYA PIECE.   HAVING A FAIRLY BIG FAMILY, EACH PIECE IS NAMED AFTER THE AMAZING WOMEN IN HER LIFE.  HAND MADE WITH LOTS OF LOVE IN LA.  BIKINI BUM OR SUNBATHING QUEEN, YOU’LL LOVE HOW YOU FEEL IN THEM.  WHERE EVER YOU MAY BE, YOU MUST FEEL BEAUTIFUL.  MAKE YEMAYA APART OF YOUR LIFE.

 

BESOTE.
