KAE Swimwear is for the modern beach girl. One who likes to travel around the world exploring exotic beaches, great food, and of course mingling with the locals. Our inspiration comes from spending every weekend and every summer at the beach. We focus on creating the perfect cuts, prints and details that will help create new memories while laughing in the sand and sun. KAE stands for Krista, Alicia and Elizabeth, three sisters who love campfires, road trips, adventures and bikinis.
First Born, Krista has always been drawn to the ocean. Her first job in high school was at a beach stand, where before and after work, she loved to surf and skate. After high school, Krista attended nearby Wor-Wic Community College, later transferring to UMD to finish her degree. Growing up she had dabbled in modeling and later in life decided to pursue it. After working in the entertainment industry she created quite the resume from walking for Tommy Hilfiger to landing the cover of Maxim's Magazine's Hot 100. Inspired by her ocean roots, Krista is now creating her own fashion, mixed with her beach lifestyle. With hard work, knowledge, dedication, determination and the help of her sisters, KAE swimwear was born.
Like her big sis, Alicia grew up living and working ocean side too. Upon graduating high school she made a big decision to move to Baltimore to pursue her college education at Towson University and then University of Baltimore. After residing in the city for six years she didn't know exactly what she wanted to do but knew exactly where she wanted to be - somewhere she could dig her toes into the sand and watch the waves roll onto the shore while soaking in the sun! Alicia found her way back to the beach and was excited to put her fashion sense and creativity to work with her sister to design one of a kind, handmade swimwear for every beach loving gal!
