About the designer
Most people know me as Pax which is a nickname my mom gave me. I grew up in the Lake Victoria region where we could swim bare; no bikinis or swimming costumes available. Fast forward to my teenage years, I moved to towns where I could watch people on TV swim in bikinis and really got inspired to not only wanting to own one but also to make one. At that time, I knew I wanted to make something that people could relate to; comfortable, fitting and stylish enough bikinis to bring out their inner beauty using vibrant colors. I continued with my studies and did my Bachelors in Nutrition and Dietetics where I got knowledge on body fitness and the importance of good health. I wanted to incorporate this in my swimwear to make fun, chic, contemporary athleisure wear, a lifestyle that everyone dreams of when you wear your Paxwear. I brought the idea to life in 2020 when I first launched my two collections Pax Set and the Ziza Set.
