Stoked to talk with Jazz in La Cruz Mexico, about how she got into the Bikini business, why she chose a beach centered life, running a business with soul and why its important to create quality garments… plus more….
“After studying fashion design at Unico AUG, I decided to start a brand of long-lasting bikinis. I spent a lot of time looking for the best providers and I found them.
We create garments in low quantities to maintain exclusive designs, comfortable and of the best quality, that allow you to look good and at the same time keep you moving without fear of it moving.
Jazz Ro bikinis last much longer than a conventional bikini, they are double view, quick drying and you can double use the tops as a bralette.”
