Before becoming a swimwear tycoon, Monica Wise was just another struggling fashion designer. In 2000, she made the move from New York to Orange County in search of a calmer way of life. What she found was a rich history of beach culture that would soon provide the inspiration for her now world-renowned brand, L*SPACE. Since its inception, L*SPACE has been lauded for its fashionable and high-quality swimwear. In fact, the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association has named it "Swimwear Brand of the Year" seven years in a row. With Monica at the helm, it's easy to see why L*SPACE continues to be a leader in the swimwear industry. Thanks to her vision and dedication, we can all enjoy fashionable and functional swimwear that takes us from the beach to brunch and beyond.
