Introducing HY Swimwear. Swimwear designed for the use of Hydrotherapy.
HY Swimwear’s garments are specifically made with comfortable, flexible fabrications that are water-friendly and move with your body. The swimsuits are made, excluding any plastic/metal clasps, embellishments or rhinestones, etc., to ensure the wearer has a pleasant feeling against their skin during treatments. All collection pieces are reversible including matching mommy and me sets.
HY Swimwear's conceptual story is based on the designer's experience being a NICU baby and the alternative forms of treatment utilized for healing. By commemorating the designer's childhood and infancy, memorabilia tokens, including her birth congratulation cards, sonogram film, and childhood security blanket, were the foundation of this collection's textile manipulations and fabrication.
Justine Doll Jacobs inherited creativity from her parents, who majored in the performing arts. The 23-year-old designer received a BFA in fashion design at Parsons School of Design in 2022. Justine's experience in fashion is extensive, but her interest has grown into fashion marketing, wardrobe styling, concept development, and event planning. Her dedication and ambition led to a solid senior thesis collection. The designer's favorite brands include Jacquemus and Fiorucci. Justine's education has led to multiple job opportunities where she enjoys adding value to a brand. In addition, she hopes to evolve her career by traveling and networking with innovative people.
