About the Designer

From childhood, Chelsea dreamed of becoming a designer—drawing fashion sketches at an early age. Growing up in Kansas City, Missouri Chelsea pursued her career by graduating from Stephens College with a bachelor’s degree in fashion design. She obtained an internship in California working with Sunsets, Inc and from there progressed to become a designer.

After a few years in the swimwear industry Chelsea noticed there was a need in the plus size market for a high quality swimwear line. She wanted to design swimwear that was not only flattering and stylish, but also comfortable for all-day wear. It was important to her that the silhouettes embraced a woman’s curves with impeccable fit and support. Chelsea used her knowledge of swimwear and her customer to launch Curve by Sunsets. The collection has had overwhelming support from retailers across the United States and has begun setting the bar in the plus size swimwear market.

When Chelsea isn’t designing you can find her out and about trying new vegan food in Long Beach, at a movie in the park, or at home making jewelry.
