Joanna Borres' Profile
Growing up on the on the east coast of Florida, self-taught designer and seamstress Joanna Borres is no stranger to swimwear. As a teenager she always had difficulty finding a swimsuit to fit her properly, due to her petite stature. Bikini bottoms would come up too high and would have too much coverage, and one pieces were too long, which always meant having to have them altered. Having a passion for fashion, especially for swimwear, and always in need of altering store bought suits and clothing, she decided to start creating her own bikinis for herself and her friends, then eventually working as a seamstress for various designers. Working in the industry, she discovered that so many other women had issues finding suits to fit them properly.
Joanna founded Black Cat Bikinis so that she could offer women well-made, hand-crafted swimwear, not only for women like herself that are smaller…
