Solkissed Swimwear designer Alejandra Boggiano, was raised along the Pacific Ocean with sand in her toes and salt in her hair. Born in Miraflores, Peru, spending her younger years in Iquique, Chile and growing up in sunny San Diego, CA.
Alejandra’s love from fashion started at a very early age, flipping through fashion magazines, circling up outfits and dreaming of one day being able to wear them.
After college, Alejandra left the beach life for a bit to move to the concrete jungle of New York City and pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer.
Alejandra wanted to create a line that tied her Latin roots with her fun and laidback Californian sensibilities but new found love for the City that never sleeps- And with her love of sunny days and beaches in mind, Solkissed Swimwear was born.
From the beginning, Alejandra counted with the support of her family to turn the brand into what it is today, specially the support of her mother, Ana Maria Quintana-Gurt, who now works full-time with Solkissed, taking care of everything production in Lima, Peru.
Alejandra’s family oriented mission has remained with the brand, maintaining a commitment to work with women micro-entrepreneurs who sew from their homes while being able to take care of their families and receiving fair-trade pay for their work.
