About

Meaning "wish" in Italian, our wish is for a cleaner, healthier, better world for us all which starts by cleaning up our oceans, waterways, beaches and saving marine life which is why our swimwear is made from regenerated nylon, eco-friendly inks, biodegradable packaging & shipping and NEVER any one-time use plastics.

Founding Story

Voglia Swimwear came to founder & creative visionary Ashley-Victoria Smith in a dream - she literally dreamed that models were walking the NYFW catwalk in NASA inspired swimwear with steam coming from the runway as if the spaceship was awaiting for takeoff, the smell of coconut oil lingered in the air, and Nicki Minaj's song "Starships" was playing . When Smith awoke, she new that she had to bring this dream to life. That was in 2017, Smith says "I didn't want to just be another swimwear brand, as with anything I do, it has to have purpose. So I waited, I trusted the Universe to speak to me, and she did. In a quick vision, my Native American ancestors spoke to me and told me that I needed to aid in doing better at taking care of Mother Earth as well as encouraging others to do so. So I started researching everything from our fashion waste, consumer habits, climate change, ocean pollution, etc.... in addition to finding sustainable substitutions on how we can create new products without using new material, additionally the manufacture that I choose to work with had to also align within my sustainability goals & moral ethics."

After five years, Voglia Swimwear debuted their Spaced Out collection at Miami Swim Week in 2020.
