You’ll find Beach Bunny Swimwear gracing the beautiful bodies of the world’s sexiest women. But if you want to find the woman who designed these drop-dead gorgeous suits, you’ll have to look inside her Orange County, CA office. There, behind the towering stacks of fabric swatches and hardware samples, founder and designer Angela Chittenden is hard at work on her next best-selling creation.
The brains — and body — behind Beach Bunny Swimwear, Angela’s passion for couture kicked in at an early age. “Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved fashion and swimwear,” she explains, taking a momentary break from her jam-packed schedule to speak about her design philosophy. “So being able to combine the two is a dream come true for me.”
Angela’s all grown up now — a mother of two daughters and four step-daughters ranging in ages between one and fifteen. But she’s managed to keep her spectacular figure and her sense of fun. Both of which inspired the launch of her breakthrough swimwear in 2004.
