“Fashion is one of the world’s largest industries, however, it is also one of the most polluting.”
Conscious entrepreneurs understand that they can not continue with the damaging norms of profitability. Our lives on this planet are short, and while we strive during this time to make the most money, we must not forget our responsibility to care for the environment. Samantha Jones is a young fashion designer and entrepreneur who is committed to doing her part in helping the environment through her luxury sustainable swimwear brand Beau Swim.
Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, Samantha had a great childhood. She recalls how her loving parents encouraged her and her sister to pursue their passions. Fortunate enough to attend a high school that offered fashion and sewing classes, little Samantha dreamed of owning a clothing brand. Her dream became doable through education when she flew across the country to Los Angeles to attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in DTLA. She studied Merchandising Product Development and received a BS in Business Management.
After learning the significance of developing the mindset of an entrepreneur, Samantha committed herself to constant learning despite the setbacks. She credits her refusal to give up amid discouraging challenges for being able to achieve her goals and keep on dreaming. She launched Beau Swim in 2021 and has been able to take the company to incredible heights since. The swimwear brand enchanted audiences at the Miami Swim Week 2021 and Monaco Swim Week 2022. They’re invitees to the Miami Swim Week 2022, where they’ll showcase their highly anticipated Laguna Collection.
What separates Beau Swim from the competition is that they are not only sustainable but also a luxury brand. They use eco dying on the printed material and ECONYL, a premium quality fabric made from ocean waste/plastic. Waste is one of the biggest challenges in the fashion industry. Samantha shares, “At Beau Swim, we are committed to being a part of the solution.”
Beau Swim donates a portion of our proceeds to the R.O.L.E Foundation, which educates companies and people on being more sustainable in their everyday and work lives. A part of that money also goes towards beach clean-ups!
Samantha is a committed environmentalist and admired entrepreneur. Her company takes customer service to the next level by making shopping convenient and affordable for the customers. As she plans the global expansion of Beau Swim, she aspires to venture into sleep/loungewear, body oils, and sunscreens. We wish her the best in her future endeavors as the force behind a fashion company setting new precedents with its environmentally friendly approach.
