Hi guys! I thought I'd let you all know how I started Rocha Swim. Before Rocha Swim was anything I was a student at De Marcos Fashion Academy in Santa Barbara. Yes I was a fashion and design student studying dresses; you heard right dresses not bathing suits. My first "line" was three dresses I had to come up with for my first fashion show ever that my school hosted every year. The line of dresses were inspired by the Asian culture, I am very much in love with Asian prints. My third dress kind of took a turn from my asian theme, it was gold and sparkly and long, it had the prettiest train on it... it was my finale dress so it had to be different it had to make the crowd say "AHHH!!" "OMG!" "THATS BEAUTIFUL" and so it did. The reactions of everyones face was priceless! It proved to me that I had done wonderfully on this dress and everyone was INLOVE! But after my show was over I started gearing towards swimwear. I have no idea where I got the motivation to pursue swimwear, but I did. Rocha Swim took off! I was getting orders left and right, I even got asked to have bottoms in a magazine called 708 Magazine all in my first month of making bathing suit bottoms. I was beyond thrilled with all the love and encouragement that kept pushing me forward with Rocha Swim. I am about four months in and I couldn't be happier! Designing swimwear and making patterns, putting them together, everything came to me so naturally so I knew this is where I was supposed to be. 

Here are my three dresses ( which were made in 3 months) YES I was stressing out but I love the results
