In this hot tub in Finland! I would also accept Puerto Rico, Bali, Argentina, Thailand, Portugal, Fiji, or really any where else that’s beautiful and not Chicago in the winter.
Whelp, I DO love Chicago, and it’s an aight place to be creative. When I tell people I’m starting a swimwear line, a lot of time they like to sarcastically respond with, “Wow–swimwear in Chicago–that makes sense.” It just never occurred to me that it didn’t make sense. I understand that it’s not exactly tropical here, but I would say that most people I cross paths with, like 99% of them, go places where they need a bathing suit. Including me! Shouldn’t those suits be radical and fresh? The answer is yes, and the answer is to design swimwear in Chicago–maybe while dreaming of Finland. xo
