With the success of the line, Chamorrita Swimwear will open its boutique doors this Valentine’s Day at the Outrigger, Plaza in Tumon. The Grand Opening will showcase the newest collection with a special blessing from Sakman creator, local activist, artist and visionary, Ron Acfalle at 6:30 p.m. Stewart, who has been an advocate for local talent, artisans and products has made her presence known on the island as an influential and empowering woman in the community. With her unique approach in working with and featuring local models, photographers, craftsmen, in evolving her brand, she was able to gain much attention and followers in the island. The public is more than welcome to join Stewart and her bonita chamorritas in presenting the new Chamorrita Swimwear boutique with its latest styles of bikinis, apparel, accessories and new men’s line.
Chamorrita Swimwear was first established in 2011 by brand owner and designer Sandrine Cruz Stewart. Since its debut, the bikini was a hot topic of conversation. Raising eyebrows, enlarging eyes and gasps can be heard when someone encounters a bonita chamorrita donning a piece from the collection.
Chamorrita Swimwear brings the bikini back to it’s roots from where it all started in 1946 with French inventor Louis Réard and the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands in Micronesia. The daring two-piece swimsuit was called, “the bomb” which created quite a stir as it was promoted as “smaller than the world’s smallest bathing suit”.
The swimwear line is a cheeky collection designed with love on Guam of the Mariana Islands in Micronesia. Each piece is delicately crafted with natural tropical elements like coconut & mother of pearl shells, and perfectly tailored to feature the natural beauties of our island. Using quality fabric from France, cut for minimal coverage and stitched to enhance the natural beauties of our island, Chamorrita Swimwear uses less fabric, carefully selected for vibrant colors and cuts, a blend of the Italian low cut and the flirty Brazilian fit, fused with local natural elements of the island.
