OUR STORY

SLATE SWIM

 

Slate Swim is a contemporary swimwear brand, born in Los Angeles and established in 2015. We create effortlessly-sexy swimwear pieces that are your ultimate go-to.

Slate is all about celebrating the female body and flattering your curves. We use buttery-soft, ultra stretch fabric to tighten and hug all the right places. Our suits are seamless, to give you super comfortable and sexy silhouettes. 

All of our designs are inspired by the LA lifestyle with a contemporary update. Each piece is designed with clean lines, minimalistic style, 90's high cuts, and a neutral color palette to create timeless swimwear.

 

 

 

OUR STORY

 

I started Slate Swim in 2015 with the idea of bringing simple, yet strong staple swimwear pieces to girls like myself. I always had a hard time finding suits that I felt fit into my minimalist style- focusing on the perfect fit, construction, and design aesthetic. 

For as long as I can remember, I have always aspired to create my own brand. I started studying design and sewing at a young age, competing in competitions and furthering my love for fashion. I used to dream of living near the ocean and loved the California lifestyle, so once I moved and began working in the fashion industry, creating a swim line was a no-brainer.

When I started the brand, I had worked in the corporate fashion industry for 2 years in design and buying. Once I got the idea to start Slate Swim, I quit my job with a month of rent saved up and never looked back. From sewing my very first round of samples to now overseeing manufacturing and focusing on design season after season, I couldn't be more thankful for our growth.

Owning Slate Swim for me is truly all about our amazing customers and the support you have given us. To this day, I am still so overwhelmed with all the love and how far we have come together- you girls truly brought my dream to life.
