Tell us more about your brand? Where did it start? Where can people purchase?
I started my brand in 2013, when I moved to Tampa, Florida. God spoke to me to create plus size resort & swimwear. I didn't think he was talking to me, until 2 skinny chicks walked passed my window in bikinis lol. Since then, my life has changed with volunteering, conducting research, and just designing for my curvy queens! My items can be purchased at www.ninasharae.com
