Designer Iwa Why has drawn influence from her life growing up as a hula dancer in the resort town of Kona on the Big Island of Hawai’i to create her namesake brand, IwaWhy (EE-va/wī).

She fuses her polynesian heritage and love of luxury resort wear with her belief in versatility to create not-so-basic basics that inspire you to live the island life wherever you are. Using hand-picked fabrics and classic silhouettes, IwaWhy designs swimwear that can seamlessly blend into your wardrobe, blurring the line between ready to wear and resort wear. From vacay to every day, IwaWhy creates swimwear you’ll want to live in.
