Who: Hi, there, my name is Lauren and I'm the owner and designer behind Hibiskiss Clothing!
I've been an island girl since four years old, growing up on Guam, a teeny tiny island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I've always had an interest in fashion, pouring over photos from Couture Week to NY Fashion Week from a young age. But after moving to Hawaii, I have a bigger appreciation for approachable style. Stilettos and high-end fashion are rare, or saved for special occasions. For day to day, you'll see most women in cut offs, Locals slippers (flip-flops) and a tank or tee.
What: Hibiskiss Clothing is a new brand that encompasses a little bit of sass, while not sacrificing style. It's all about flattering fit, cozy fabrics, and of course, a brand message of Island Inspiration, Regardless of Location. How many times have you loved a graphic tee but wished it came in a fashionable style, a crop tank, an open back, not only a basic white t-shirt that doesn't breathe or show off your figure. This is where we come in.
Where: We are based on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. But our global designs will put you in the paradise mood, the vacation spell, no matter where you live. Paradise is a state of mind!
When: The brand was incepted in 2015, the year of the Girl Boss.
Why: I believe all women should pursue their passion. I am currently battling some health issues so there is no better time than the present to work for myself, on my own schedule, and share my love for comfortable fashion. I have always wanted to start a clothing line and I am so excited to share this dream with you all!
I would love to hear from you… something you're loving, wishing we had, any questions, or just a quick "Aloha" feel free to email me at Lauren@HibiskissClothing.com.
