Get Summer Ready (With Topaz): Luxury, High Quality Swimwear
Launched in 2018 by Natasha Rose Griggs, Topaz Swimwear means: high-quality, slow, luxurious, and individuality (inspired by the beauty and serenity of nature).
Natasha aspired to create a luxury British brand that stands out as a champion, when it comes to slow luxury (in an age of overwhelming fast fashion).
Investing in high quality swimwear that was built to last, – reinforces the idea that clothes should be loved for a lifetime, NOT just a season. And that’s why every Topaz piece has been thoughtfully-designed for the perfect feel-good fit, in a stylish silhouette (that will stand the test of time).
Topaz maintains the highest standards of quality and luxury, donating £1 from each purchase to the Marine Conservation Society.
Topaz values the planet, hence creating conscious collections that are not trend-led, whilst moving towards a zero-waste brand, by using biodegradable packaging, and sustainable production methods (where possible).
Natasha Rose Griggs is a 30-year-old designer who graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2015, with a degree in Fashion Knitwear Design.
‘During my four years at university, I was lucky to land myself at high end designers, Alexander McQueen and Julien MacDonald for ten months and three months respectively, followed by a few smaller internships. I handmade dresses for Kourtney Kardashian, yet I struggled to find a paid design job, so I spent the next 18 months working unpaid for a number of fashion houses,” said Natasha.
That was until she landed her first paid job at Superdry, as a Junior Swimwear and Knitwear designer.
It was here, that she noticed a huge gap in the market for a luxury British brand that represents high quality, slow luxury, and individuality, hence Topaz Swimwear being born in 2018.
Within a year of launching, Topaz Swimwear won two awards: the Best New Swimwear Brand of the Year, and the Klarna Small Business Award, whilst also being shortlisted for the Marie Claire Sustainability Award this year.
Now, Topaz Swimwear is stocked in three luxury UK retailers. They’ll be showcasing for the first time at Miami Swimwear Week, a summer pop up in London, and they’ve hired a sales representative in the United States, selling Topaz Swimwear into international resorts and boutiques.
