MEET THE UNDERSEA TEAM

Probably some of you already know the members of our small team, however, we decided to introduce everyone to you through a short interview!

Every babe is valuable and has an important part in how we operate as a swimwear brand and we really appreciate all of our team members. As we are an online brand, you don‘t really see us often, so hopefully it will also help to put faces to the names and to give you an exclusive behind the scenes glimpse of the girls who work hard to make sure you’re happy with your new Undersea Bikinis!

MONIKA - CEO / DIRECTOR

TELL US ABOUT YOUR ROLE AT UNDERSEA WEAR!

I’m the Owner and Director of Undersea. This actually means that I do what I need to do to run the business smoothly aka problem solving. Besides that, I design, manage finance, our warehouse and all of our projects, I handle PR collaborations, liaise with our manufacturer for stock orders and so on.

WHAT DOES AN AVERAGE WORK DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU? 

Right after waking up, I go outside to the balcony to get some fresh air, drink my coffee and plan my day. This is when I organize and prioritize my tasks for the day and make a schedule because every day is different. Next, I get back to my desk and start working on our current projects. For example, preparing a business plan for our collaborations, advertisements, seeking for new innovations, developments, planning production, etc. We also have brainstorming sessions to look at potential partners and my responsibility is to negotiate and make final agreements with them. I also visit our production plant 1-2 times a week to see if everything is going well and try to keep the whole production process under control.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I just love the creative process and being able to build something out of nothing.  I also love taking things to the NEXT level! Seeing a vision come to life through strong attention to detail, creative expression and hard work is everything.

YOUR FAVOURITE PIECES FROM THE LATEST COLLECTION? 

My favourite Undersea piece is VERY hard to choose but if I had to pick one...I would say the Lime Lolita with the Lime Thong is my summer staple. It looks so good on brown skin and it is super comfy.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE UNDERSEA CAMPAIGN LOCATION? 

Bali was the best shooting trip ever! Those lovely beaches, sunsets and delicious healthy foods…No other place can beat that. We also went to diving on our last day and it was unforgettable.

DAISY - PHOTOGRAPHER / PR - MARKETING MANAGER

TELL US ABOUT YOUR ROLE AT UNDERSEA WEAR!

Basically, I am the main photographer of the brand. I am doing all the campaigns and the other, smaller shootings during the year.

Beside taking photos, I am the marketing manager of Undersea. I make the daily posts and stories for Instagram, I design the newsletters, I write the blog posts, I do the necessary graphic designs and actually everything else that is about PR or Marketing. I take care of keeping a nice image of Undersea with beautiful contents and good ideas.

WHAT DOES AN AVERAGE WORK DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU? 

I like to wake up without an alarm to make sure I slept enough and I can dedicate 110% focus to my work. So, I usually wake up around 9:00-9:30, I check my phone and read my emails and messages. If there is something urgent, I answer, If not, I leave it for later. Then I post the daily content for social media and I get out of my bed.

I make a nice coffee or orange juice along with some delicious brekkie and I sit down to my desk in front of my laptop.

As my job is pretty various, every day is a bit different. If I am not outside shooting some babes, then I spend basically my whole day in front of my phone and laptop. I design everything that goes out in the next few days/weeks, I maintain our website, I organize the upcoming campaigns and events, etc etc.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?

CREATIVITY!!!! I was always a creative person, I just love to keep running my mind and create. I love to design, whether it is a new bikini, a photo shooting, a website or just a hangtag, I love every moment of creating. I am very grateful that I can have a job like that!

YOUR FAVOURITE PIECES FROM THE LATEST COLLECTION? 

Huh.. hard to choose only one! I definitely love the Black Nikki with Black Thong but I would say the Purple Lolita & Purple Thong! I think that is the best for my body type and personality.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE UNDERSEA CAMPAIGN LOCATION? 

Hmm.. It is impossible to choose! We have been at too many beautiful places! But If I must say one place then I would pick Bali! Hard to beat that island :P It has way too many good locations to shoot at! Crazy vibes and nature. Forever fav!

WHERE IS YOUR TOP 3 VACAY DESTINATION? 

Bora Bora, Maldives, Kenya

WHAT DO YOU LOVE THE MOST ABOUT SUMMER?

I love that you can wear a bikini or a tiny dress all day long, I love the smell of the beach and sound of the dancing waves, I love that the days are long, the nights are warm and cozy, I love that you can swim anytime in the sea and eat fresh fruits all day long. I love to be tanned, walk on barefoot and be natural and messy ! Summer is like being lost in the wilderness of this beautiful Planet.

REKA - STOCK CO-ORDINATOR

TELL US ABOUT YOUR ROLE AT UNDERSEA WEAR!

I am the one who is responsible for the packages. If you order, I prepare your package and make sure that your delivery arrives in time with the highest love and care.

WHAT DOES AN AVERAGE WORK DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?

I go to Monika‘s Office in the morning where she always welcomes me with a nice, hot coffee and some fresh gossip, haha.

Afterwards, I check the latest orders in the system and I make a list. Then I start to pack your orders.

After the packaging process whether I am going to the post office to send your new kinis or I arrange a meeting with a guy from Fedex and he comes to the office to pick up the babies.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?

The welcome coffee, haha :D

Joking aside, my job is a bit like the Elf‘s job at Santa Claus warehouse. I love to deliver happiness to you and I love even more to be part of this amazing company.

YOUR FAVOURITE PIECES FROM THE LATEST COLLECTION? 

The Lime Rockwell Top with Black High Cut Bottom! Sporty, sexy, comfortable!

LENKE -LEAD SEAMSTRESS

TELL US ABOUT YOUR ROLE AT UNDERSEA WEAR!

I am the tailor of Undersea Wear. Once the girls are ready with the designs, I am the one who brings them into life.

WHAT DOES AN AVERAGE WORK DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU? 

I wake up very early, so I can spend the whole day productive.

If we are doing a new collection, I start the day with drawing and cutting the custom patterns of the new designs. The girls are working digital, they design the swimsuits in Photoshop and Illustrator and I am the one who puts everything on papers.

Usually, it takes a couple of days to get to the final patterns so my whole days are spent like that.

Once they are ready, I start the sample production. To find the best version and the perfect size of the bikinis is always the hardest part of my job but once everything is settled and approved by Monika, I can start the main production.

As it is a really big work, I have an assistant who helps me.

Usually I finish my work pretty late, but the day is not over! I have to cook dinner because I have a husband to feed :P When we are fed, we rest together.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I love to create. Especially, create something that other people are dreaming about, just like a wedding dress or a swimwear collection.

I love to face new challenges; they keep my mind alive!

YOUR FAVOURITE PIECES FROM THE LATEST COLLECTION? 

I would say Venus Top paired with Black Regular Bottom. Even my age group (50+) can wear it with confidence!

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE UNDERSEA CAMPAIGN LOCATION? 

I love the shots taken in Miami! So much vibration and bold colors!

WHERE IS YOUR TOP 3 VACAY DESTINATION? 

Amalfi, Bora Bora, Dominican Republic

WHAT DO YOU LOVE THE MOST ABOUT SUMMER?

I love that the sun is shining all day, I can gardening in my bikini, I love to go for long wellness weekends and just to go out in general. My horoscope is Pisces, I love to be in the water!
