GIGI C is a luxury swimwear collection founded in 2016 by 16-year-old Gianna "Gigi" Caruso and her mother, Tina, with a mission to create functional yet stylish swimwear. Gigi, raised in sunny Southern California, is passionate about water sports and couldn't find swimwear that matched her active lifestyle and personal taste. She and Tina, a former clothing designer and swimsuit model, decided to craft their own swimwear, leading to the brand's signature aesthetic—clean lines, architectural shapes, and crisp, laser-cut details.
