Topaz Swim, led by award winning business owner Natasha Griggs, Founder & Creative Director of independent start up company Topaz Luxe Ltd. Topaz Swim is a bespoke swimwear brand that launched during the pandemic. Natasha found that the current swimwear market was missing the niche of classic high quality swimwear at a competitive price. The company's mission is to create exclusive swimwear which promotes unique designs to a tailored fit. Natasha founded the brand from my bedroom, whilst working as a full time designer for three years.
The key features that separates Topaz from all other competitors is its commitment to providing young women with an undeniable need for high quality, well-structured and sophisticated swimwear. The primary concern is ensuring that consumers are happy with the fit and style of their purchase.
Since Topaz Swim launched last year, they have been awarded best New Swimwear Brand of the Year by Central Prestige Awards 2021, the Klarna Small Business Award 2021 and 40 under 40 Entrepreneurs to watch this year. Natasha has also been put forward for the Gloucestershire Business awards, been a guest mentor at De Montfort university and has been invited to do seminar for womens investment about her journey.
There is a distinct lack of technical swimwear and prosthetics that are tailored for women recovering from a mastectomy, who still have an undeniable need to feel feminine and confident in their new bodies.The current swimwear market is very limited when it comes to finding a swimsuit that not only is going to fit a purpose,but make women feel confident when they are at their most vulnerable. Instead of limiting consumers to survival friendly swimwear,Natasha seeks to bring to market a revolutionary new swimwear brand that meets the needs of millions of women worldwide recovering post surgery.
The name REFINE comes from the meaning of removing impurities and unwanted elements. Style, quality and functionality are three parts of the equation when it comes to our innovation. We will focus on creating high quality, flattering fits that will honour unique breast surgeries and shapes, while luxurious UPF 50 fabrics help keep your sun sensitive skin safe from UVB rays .Keeping our strong brand values in mind throughout.
This project is extremely innovative when it comes to our sector and niche,this entirely new product will change the way women feel in their new bodies and have a positive impact on mental health whilst making a difference. Natasha hopes to connect with leading connections in the world that will play a huge part in the development of innovative swimwear and high quality forms that cannot be obtained anywhere else.
