our story

Founded in 2018 by Shani Grimmond, Sylk Swim was born from curated experiences travelling the world and a deep love of the ocean and high-fashion.

The story starts with the wearer. She is the epitome of romance and adventure. On a permanent vacation, suspended between heaven and earth above glistening blue waters. A place where nothing exists but the warmth of the sun on your skin and the soft ocean breeze.

Sylk Swim is designed for you. For the women who want to feel confident and beautiful. Crafted with the people and planet in mind - we're about taking timeless silhouettes and making them luxurious and inclusive - we want everybody to feel welcome here. Sylk is about comfort and empowerment - on the inside and out.

Our pieces are made with love and encourage you to embrace your most authentic self, to highlight your inner beauty. We will always celebrate what makes you unique and beautiful on and off of our pages. 

We can’t wait to see you in Sylk Swim.

a message from the owner, shani

"I started Sylk Swim when I was 21 years old in December of 2018. I have always had a passion for high end fashion, a deep love for the ocean and a burning desire to help others feel beautiful in their own skin. The combination of this resulted in a vision that I couldn’t shake.

This vision became my creative outlet - it took me over a year to perfect the initial design process. I’ve always been a perfectionist and I didn’t want to put something out there that wasn’t my best work. I wanted to create premium quality swimwear that was timeless and made to last for seasons to come - from this, Sylk Swim was born.

I started social media in 2012 when I was just 15 years old. I quickly grew a strong online presence and by staying true to myself, authentic and honest over the past decade - this grew into a loyal and supportive community and cherished customers of Sylk Swim.

These qualities are something that I will continue to stand by when creating and selling my designs.

To me, Sylk Swim is more than just a swimwear brand. It’s about celebrating what makes us human, encouraging confidence and feeling empowered.

I am truly grateful every day for the support, trust and love I have received over the years from my customers and our community. Sylk Swim is for you.

Thank you for being a part of my journey.

Love, Shani xx"
