This week we are excited to introduce you to designer Pacific & Driftwood. Why do you shop at Molly Brown’s Swimwear? The reasons are as multiple and unique as our lines of swimwear, apparel and accessories. You want that wow factor to help stand out and make the perfect entrance into any situation. We understand this and go above and beyond to find that “perfect suit”. To satisfy our clients, Molly Brown’s spends a great deal of time building relationships with the top swimwear designers available and are constantly looking for the next great brand. Pacific & Driftwood is exactly one of those types of brands and we are excited to showcase them in 2016.
Debuting in 2014 out of Venice Beach at the cross streets of her home, Pacific and Driftwood, P&D came to fruition when Owner/Designer Christian Cox left a career she was miserable in and celebrated her new found freedom with a Caribbean getaway. Unable to find the perfect bikini to suit her personality, she created the perfect suit for her, showcasing her 4th generation California roots and rock-and-roll personality. By the end of the trip her suit was the hit of the island and had admirers all around asking for custom suits of their own.
Inspired by the response, Christian began her own Etsy store and within a week had taken over 300 orders worldwide. What followed was sleepless nights, overwhelming pressure to satisfy orders, magazine and store demands for samples and, finally, some much needed assistance from an investor from Dubai who offered backing while allowing her to keep full creative and branding control.
What emerged was an exciting and unique brand of swimwear offering jaw dropping aesthetics, original prints, playful and sexy creations that continue to evolve with collaborations of ambassadors, artists, models and other designers that have earned the respect of Pacific & Driftwood. We at Molly Brown’s are excited to carry the P&D brand and can’t wait to see what she designs next. You can purchase our selection of Pacific & Driftwood on-line or visit one of our stores for a personal fitting with our expert sales staff.
