Swimwear designer Nic Hyl has had to make some very interesting changes in the way she makes & markets her business & skills. Her specialization is in modest swimwear design specifically for muslim women. In speaking with her, we learn about how growing up in the tropical temperatures in Florida but living in the brutally honest setting of New York has helped her create a product for a niche of folks that most swimwear designers may not even think about. Listen to our conversation on this week’s episode of Eff the Glitter.
Nic Hyl is the founder and creative director of New York’s newest emerging swimwear, clothing and lifestyle brand, Nic Hyl. As a lover of travel, fitness and fashion and having previously worked in the fashion industry for brands including Norma Kamali and Ralph Lauren, Nic has taken her experience, Jamaican roots, and Florida upbringing to create a brand inspired by her love of quality, fashion and a vacation inspired lifestyle. “It’s the beauty of fashion that I see on a daily basis on New York City streets coupled with my Florida roots and Jamaican culture, that has inspired me to create a swimwear, clothing and lifestyle brand, so that fashionable women can translate their personal style to the beach, pool or wherever their lives take them. My goal is to celebrate a wider definition of beauty for every body, everywhere; one uniquely beautiful garment at a time.” – Nic Hyl Currently, Nic is working on size inclusive styles and modest swimwear for women of all sizes to see themselves represented in their swimwear and lifestyle garment choices. These styles will launch later in 2021.
