Soak Swimwear’s Angela See took matters in her own hands and made her own swimwear!

Words by Camille Ong

In 2007, Angela See had a hard time looking for nice swimsuits within her budget. She just wanted the perfect bikini to wear on her trips but the market was lacking nice local swimsuits that were mid-priced. The beach lover that she was, Angela and her friend decided to design and make their own swimsuits instead. And thus Soak Swimwear was born.

The fact that Angela had the initiative to make her own when she found the market lacking is amazing. However, it’s more amazing to know that she did so when she just graduated from college! Talk about goals.

Their love for design gave birth to a capsule collection in 2007 that comprised of less than 10 styles. After their swimsuits were well received, they decided to make more! It’s 2018 now and they have designed countless of styles that have been worn by countless women. They offer swimsuits in all colors, shapes, and sizes.

While Soak started selling in the Philippines, the brand became famous enough to reach the markets outside the Philippines. They have customers from many parts of the globe.

Angela is an inspiration for entrepreneurs or even people who are still planning to become an entrepreneur. She started small with Soak, but her brand has since boomed and now she also co-owns The Park Fashion + Lifestyle.
