Hanakini Swim

Melanie~founder, and designer of Hanakini Swim! A FIDM Alum, and has always expressed her creativity through fashion and styling. She spent many years in LA in the fashion industry but never found her calling.
Her journey began when she moved to Italy and spent 5 years on the road traveling to nearly 50 countries around the world. She got a taste for what she loved and now in hindsight realize she was gathering heeps of inspiration for a future project. She made her way through the beaches of Greece, Italy, Bali, Morocco, Australia and more. She always found her way to warm tropical climates.
In 2015 she met a Maui boy and they merged life near his family on Maui a year later.
Hanakini came a year into her time on the island, for months she was cruisin' with her girl gang learning to surf, cliff jumping, and spending 12 hours in a bikini. She found a need to have swimwear that was so many things she couldn’t find. Practical, comfortable and cute without give me muffin top, true to size for my latina hips, and decently affordable. 
In 2018 she decided she was going to create a swimwear line that would solve the discomforts in bikinis she had as curvy size 6 woman her whole life. What you see today is compilation of everything she always wanted in swimwear from the styles all the way down to the models and shopping experience.
