THE KNOCKTURNAL: CEO and Founder Jemina Ty on Creating Blackbough Swim, The Brand’s Sustainable Efforts, and ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ Collaboration
Posted by Team Blackbough on
For Blackbough Swim founder Jemina Ty, swimwear is a perfect balance of design and comfort—something most brands don’t factor.
Ty knows this from first-hand experience. As a college student, she bought a one-piece from another swimwear brand and when the suit finally arrived, it was ill-fitting. That disappointment led to the creation of bikinis designed by Ty for her friends and herself, but soon others became interested in her designs. Six years later, Blackbough has grown tremendously. Ty has been featured in numerous magazines including Forbes and her designs have been spotted on major celebrities including Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens.
