FayEtte Bikinis

My life has always revolved around the water. Being involved with something as majestic as the sea is empowering, amazing, beautiful and humbling. Everyone experiences and interprets the ocean in their own unique way, which is one of the reasons I started making bikinis. My bikinis are only partly designed by me, you get to customize the colors and fabrics. This gives you, the wearer, the opportunity to create a combination that complements your unique lifestyle. All FayEtte Bikinis are handmade-to-order by me in my South Florida studio. They are made to stay put for girls who don't stay put. I hope you love my bikinis as much as I love making them. Enjoy your adventure :)

How FayEtte Bikinis got it's name...
My Grandmother, Marian Parsanko, and her two sisters, Bernice and Josephine, were expert seamstresses. They would do custom alterations for all of their friends and family. They were great at it. So great that they started getting custom orders for wedding gowns and dresses. They would have ladies stopping by their homes at all hours for fittings. Bernice's husband, growing a little tired of coming home from work to 3 or 4 ladies being fitted in his living room, suggested they open up a shop, so they did. They opened up a shop on Fay Ette Street in downtown Hammond, IN, aptly named the Fay Ette Shop. The Fay Ette Shop was open for over 46 successful years (1949-1995) and the startup of my company has had many parallels with the beginnings of their shop. In honor of the beautiful Parsanko sisters, I carried on the FayEtte name for my bikini company.
