Founded in 2000 by California native Amahlia Stevens, Vitamin A combines feminine design with sustainable innovation. Vitamin A bikinis and bodysuits are designed and produced locally in California with exceptional attention to detail, in their signature EcoLux fabric, a technically and environmentally superior luxe fabric, made from recycled nylon. Amahlia is inspired by ‘70s beach glamour and the modern muses who collect her designs. They’re all about effortless, natural sexiness and that laid-back West Coast vibe that is in their DNA. Vitamin A gives back a portion of proceeds directly to environmental organizations who help to protect our oceans. Vitamin A Designer and Founder Amahlia Stevens grew up on the beaches of Southern California, living in a bikini for as long as she can remember. She got her degree in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, and designed for top brands around the world before launching Vitamin A in 2000, combining her passion for the ocean with modern design and sustainable innovation to pioneer the perfect bikini: simple, clean, sophisticated and sexy. The first to elevate swimwear with neutral color palettes and chic day-to-night pieces, Amahlia understands a woman’s body, and fit is always the most important element in her designs. After all, she is the originator of the ultra flattering LBB – Little Black Bikini, as well as the now-iconic “California cut”. And if that wasn’t enough, all of her suits are made sustainably and locally, to keep you and the earth looking sexy. Basically who better to design your dream bikini? She just gets it. Amahlia lives in Laguna Beach with her husband Julius, and twin girls, Gemma and Ruby.
