THE DESIGNER:

Ever since i could remember i was fascinated with water. As a child growing up in Medellin, Colombia, i would spend hours splashing around the pool, surrounded with my friends and family. At the age of twelve my family moved to Miami, and this is where i began building a deeper connection with water. I spent my weekends tanning in the Miami sun, diving into the South Florida beaches and enjoying the waterside lifestyle of the sunshine state. After graduating high school, i knew i had to do something with my love for water.

I pursued a career in fashion design at the Fort Lauderdale Art Institute with the dream to become a swimwear designer, excelling in my swimwear design courses and always standing out with my unique designs and dedicated craftsmanship. I knew i had made the right choice and was closer to my dream.

 

During my college years i was able to set up a small studio in parents garage and began making and selling my own handmade swimsuits to close friends an family. In a matter of months, through word of mouth I was receivinig requests from people outside my personal network. My orders kept growing and i knew i could no longer keep up producing the swimsuits myself, so upon my graduation and with the help of my entrepreneurial husband i created LeMar in 2012.
