Christina Liquori Swim launched their first collection in 2005. Christina Liquori and Elizabeth O'Neill both attended FSU. Christina graduated with a design degree, and Elizabeth with a Merchandising degree. Christina began designing swimwear in 2003 after graduating and began sewing and creating the suits in her apartment in Orlando, FL.
She grew up in Pensacola and has always been inspired by the beautiful white beaches. She decided to email Sports Illustrated through their website attaching photos and thinking nothing would ever come of it. Surprisingly, she received an email within a week from the editor. She then met with the editor and decided to submit suits for their 2005 Swimsuit Issue photoshoots in July of 2004.
In January of 2005, after thinking nothing made it into the shoots, she received the call that two suits made it in! She immediately reunited with college friend Elizabeth and they began forming the company, which is what they always dreamed about at FSU.
From there, they created a 2006 collection and attended the Miami Swimshow to present it to the public. Today they are very successful with tons of press and unique 50's inspired designs that bring that little bit of edge into the swim industry.
