I’m 28. I was born and raised in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. Studied Business Administration at the University of Puerto Rico Rico and then Fashion Marketing at Parsons the New School for Design. I lived in New York, Miami and moved back to Mayagüez to start Ni|BEACHWEAR. I’m a huge animal lover and my happy place is in Rincón. I love reading either business books or biographies. Strong believer in never stopping learning about new things and trying to live life as consciously as possible.

Ni|BEACHWEAR is a sustainable, luxury brand that combines beachwear with resortwear to create versatile pieces. We focus on a sophisticated minimalist design, inspired by the authentic island life of Puerto Rico. We’ve aimed to create
a brand that’s luxury ethical fashion, by keeping sustainability and design at the core.

We design and manufacture everything in Puerto Rico and use fabrics printed by local artisan. We’ve also committed part of our proceeds from every sale to donate to Colitas Sonrientes Inc. to help Puerto Rico’s homeless animals.
Ni|BEACHWEAR’s designs are minimalistic in nature with a luxurious, laid-back aesthetic. It’s meant to be effortless and unique at the same time.
