Liane Roy FitzGerald
I grew up on the island of Martha's Vineyard and the beach has always been my second home. I spent ten summers lifeguarding on the island beaches, which meant a LOT of bikini-wearing! I was always disappointed with the fit and comfort of bikinis I purchased- I couldn't wait to take them off at the end of a long day at work.
When I entered the "real world" with a liberal arts degree I felt completely lost- but I knew that I had an overwhelming need to create and an obsessive eye for detail. Roy Swim began in the summer of 2013 with 6 suits on a rack at my local flea market, and has been an immense learning process and labor of love. At the core of my business is the belief that suits can be both striking AND comfortable- because I know that comfort and confidence go hand in hand.
Each suit is designed, cut, and sewn by me in my traveling studio- currently in Davenport, CA- where I am sewing all of my suits with solar power!
