WHO WE ARE
Acqua Bonita is the realization of a lifelong dream — a dream filled with bright colours, sunny skies, pristine blue waters, and beachside getaways. But it’s also also a dream deeply rooted in the desire to connect with other women.
My journey began as a child in Zaragoza, Spain, where my mother would take me to the local fabric store.
Walking through a kaleidoscope of rolls of fabric and draping those fabrics over myself in front of the mirror remain my most cherished childhood memories. It was also the only time I truly felt connected with my mother.
Soon I began sketching patterns and sewing my own outfits, realising the profound impact that clothing has on one's confidence, attitude, and ultimately, on your life…
Despite my growing passion for fashion, I initially pursued a career in the automotive industry. It was during this time that I observed the unwavering passion my colleagues held for cars, and it dawned on me – I too should follow my passion.
My journey led me to Italy, where I pursued formal education in fashion design and management. For years, I immersed myself in the vibrant energy of Milan, where I worked and thrived. Yet, life's unpredictable twists took me to Michigan, USA, where winters seemed endless. In those cold months, I yearned for sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters, and the warmth of sunny skies.
That's when the vision for Acqua Bonita was born. "Acqua" — the Italian word for water, and "Bonita" — which means "beautiful" in Spanish, encapsulate the essence of our brand. It conjures images of serene blue waters, sun-kissed beaches, and the joy of idyllic vacations.
Our journey then took us to Kuala Lumpur, our current home, which provided the ideal environment to breathe life into this dream. Over the past four years, I've poured my heart and soul into designing colorful, breezy outfits crafted from beautiful fabrics and a Mediterranean flair.
My mission is simple yet profound: to empower women to feel and look their absolute best while forging meaningful connections with each and every one of them.
Acqua Bonita is more than just a brand; it's a celebration of beauty, confidence, and the profound connections we share with women around the world.
Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey.
