ABOUT

WHO IS THE MAI MIA GIRL? 


The Mai Mia girl makes her own rules. And when her mind is made up, she is unstoppable. She’s the friend who always makes you feel more confident. The one who is always down for an impromptu dance party/road trip/adventure. And the one who always tells you what you need to hear, whether you’re talking business, a boyfriend or a new bikini. 

You can find her in the boardroom, a photo shoot, the gym, coding away or making music. Most likely all of the above. She doesn’t wait for things to go her way, she makes it happen. She lives/loves to push the boundaries of what’s possible. You can’t put her in a box, the same way you can’t pinpoint/define her style. It’s unapologetic, it’s fluid, edgy but polished, imaginative and confident — it’s effortless but on point every. single. time. 

She can strike up a conversation with anyone in the room. Not because she’s perfect, but because she’s unafraid to be vulnerable; to connect with you on a human level. 

The Mai Mia girl’s got layers. Just like you.

MULTI-HYPHENATE SWIMWEAR DESIGNED FOR HOW YOU LIVE, WORK & LAYER.

 

Mai Mia is a multi-hyphenate swimwear line designed for how you work, live and layer. Our suits double as layering staples that work seamlessly into your wardrobe so you can exude boss energy from the beach to the boardroom. We believe a power suit should be whatever you feel empowered in- so we're here to redefine the Power Suit, one bikini at a time. Because you deserve swimwear that works as hard as you do. 


Each piece is carefully crafted in Los Angeles, using only the finest quality European fabrics and notions available in the swimwear market. Our factory consists of highly skilled craftspeople who have perfected the art of producing swimwear with industry experience of 15+ years. By producing locally, we have the opportunity to support commerce in our community. We believe in fair business practices and fair wages for everyone involved, so our pricing model is a reflection of this as well as the high quality of our materials and designs. 


Our goal is to utilize local materials in the most cost effective way, and we are committed to making responsible decisions in developing and manufacturing our products. We order small quantities at a time and do not mass produce anything. We use sustainable ECONYL© regenerated nylon fabrics that are made from pre and post consumer waste like in fishing nets, industrial plastic waste and fabric scraps. ECONYL© fabric uses 100% recycled nylon fiber and is twice as resistant to chlorine, sun creams and oils, fabric pilling, and has SPF 50+ UV protection. Each piece is meant to be worn in and out of the water: Alone or layered for a night out, highlighting the brand’s ethos that women are not definable by any one label, title, or look.


Soozie is a Parsons alum who combines an illustrious career in fashion design with a bicoastal aesthetic to create a curated collection for the modern woman. After working under Helmut Lang and Prabal Gurung in NYC, she moved to LA and designed for BCBGmaxazria, Nasty Gal, and Revolve Clothing. Her personal projects include designing tour merch for artists such as the Chainsmokers, helping develop brands from the ground up, and creating the "I'm with her. And her." t-shirt Rihanna wore on Election Day 2016 that went viral. The Mai Mia name stems from a playful misspelling of 'my' with the designer’s Korean name, Mia, to illustrate its versatility.
