Tiffany Asamoah (she/her) knows what it’s like to solve problems, scale projects and build meaningful relationships. She has led in many Fortune 50 Organizations as a Sales and Technical leader. As an experienced leader Tiffany found her passion in creating unique solutions for underserved groups. As an African American women she knows how important it is to have representation. Leveraging her career and Masters in Project Management, she set out to grow herself creatively.
That’s how BOLD Swim came about. The Vanity Fair & Glamour featured BOLD Swim was established to change the conversation around inclusivity, diversity, sustainability, and self-love. After a disappointing swimwear purchase in 2016 left her feeling exposed, self-conscious, and compelled to spend her entire vacation covered up, she set out to create a durable, flattering option to suit every unique body comfortably and confidently. Built on a dual foundation of dignity for all and eco-conscious craftsmanship. The move to sustainability was an easy one. As a new designer I was afforded the opportunity to learn the technology in 2017 that was being made available for transparency in sourcing and production. It has been the founding principle of the brand today.
The forward-thinking brand thrives by capitalizing on the latest in sustainable technology. Leveraging partnerships with like-minded affiliates and blogs such as EcoCult, The Good Trade, and more, BOLD Swim strives to bring eco-conscious, inclusive swimwear to empower those to live their lives BOLDLY.
Each piece is sustainably sourced and ethically produced to fit the ethos of a consciously curated closet by a female-led company dedicated to giving back. BOLD Swim supports initiatives that include the empowerment of girls and women, rights for equality and the advancement of sustainable technology, and organizations working to establish social impact and eco-tourism measures.
Origin of Oceans
OOO was inspired by a life of travel, adventure, and saying “YES”. Of fearlessly embracing the “Out of Office” auto-response subject line and channeling that spirit in daily life. This launch really is a culmination of the experiences I’ve collected in my time on this beautiful planet. It’s a celebration of the amazing people, places, and memories that have graced my life and left an impact. And with every sketch, every fabric selection, every stitch, I am infusing all of that energy into each piece. With the hope that women who slip into Origin Of Oceans swimwear, feel emboldened and inspired to live their own way, courageously. I hope these suits are part of great stories told again and again in friendship circles. I hope they are part of personal growth moments of enlightenment and self-discovery. I hope they dive into the Aegean and float down lazy rivers in Tulum. I hope they drip dry from outdoor showers in New Zealand. I hope they invite and incite electric moments and unbridled bliss.
Origin Of Oceans essentially means the origin of life. Which I choose to embrace and celebrate everyday. The good, the bad, and the amazing. The earth formed over 4 billion years ago from a mix of comets bringing hydrogen, and the earth already being composed of volcanic rock encompassing H2O, which is the first sign of life that we know of scientifically. And as our knowledge has grown of the importance of the oceans and ocean life to the survival of our planet, even more this meaning of origin of life resonates with me.
My mission in my swim line is not only to create beautiful swimwear that is of the highest quality and a reliable source for amazing fit and style, but is to create awareness and support the efforts to clean our oceans and beaches to help save, heal, and preserve the life that gives us life.
With each swimwear purchase, we will donate part of the profits to The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit organization, that is developing and scaling technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Their aim is to put themselves out of business once the oceans are clean. I believe in this mission and I believe in ability to achieve this goal.

Reece Fawcett is a fine luxury jewelry designer inspired by heritage classic designs with an understated American point of view rendered in 14K Gold with sapphires and diamond . Originally from New York , the collection evokes an East Coast sensibility of navy found in ocean, riding jackets and blue jeans.
After beginning her career in Fashion merchandising and jewelry product development for licensed brands, Reece ventured into importing antiques from Copenhagen as her parents had done on the 1960’s, which led to calls for her to design interior spaces. The Coastal chic interiors featured layers of whites and navy with equestrian inferences that became her signature Hamptons style . An unstudied sophistication of barn and beach. Silver and French enamel cigarette cases with crested cyphers found at antiques markets, along with some family pinky rings became the muse for the first jewelry collection featuring shields and monograms set with navy sapphires . Currently the line features a mix of pieces that lend themselves to creating an effortless layered signature style that is fitting for everyday.
