The Founder

From Salvador Brazil to Texas

Vanessa is a mother, Christian, wife, and an ambitious entrepreneur. Her journey into entrepreneurship began early when she was 16 years old she embarked on her first entrepreneurial venture alongside her mother, laying the foundation for her future endeavors. As she grew older, Vanessa's love for business only intensified.  Upon moving to Texas, she pursued her education with perseverance, earning a Bachelor's degree in Business Leadership from a private university. Recognizing the importance of continuous learning and skill development, she also obtained a Business Consultant certificate from another institution.

Her journey into entrepreneurship in the United States began in 2019 when she recognized a gap in the swimwear market that resonated deeply with her own experiences and frustrations.

As a Brazilian, Vanessa was accustomed to swimsuits that accentuated her body type and brought confidence while wearing it in public. However, upon moving to the United States, she discovered a scarcity of swimsuits that mirrored the styles she cherished. This discovering wasn't just her own; it was a widespread issue among many women in America.

Driven by her passion for empowering women and her desire to fill this void in the market, Vanessa made the bold decision to open her own swimwear business along with the financial support of her husband. Drawing inspiration from her Brazilian roots, she set out to bring exclusive swimsuits from Brazil to women in the U.S. 

Vanessa's vision for Wear Brazil goes beyond simply offering stylish swimsuits; it's about empowering women to feel confident and comfortable while wearing a swimsuit. Brazil is renowned for its vibrant and diverse swimwear fashion industry, and Vanessa is proud to be a part of that legacy. By curating a collection of swimsuits that enhance the beauty of women of all shapes and sizes, Wear Brazil has become a beacon of confidence and empowerment.

With each swimsuit she brings to market, Vanessa's passion for her brand shines through, igniting a desire to establish Wear Brazil as a trusted and beloved brand worldwide. Through dedication, perseverance, and a commitment to her values, Vanessa is not just building a business; she's creating a movement—one that celebrates diversity, confidence, and the beauty of being authentically oneself.

One of Vanessa's most distinguishing traits is her remarkable accent, a constant reminder of her Brazilian heritage. Rather than shying away from it, she embraces it wholeheartedly, viewing it as a source of pride and connection to her roots. Her accent serves as a conversation starter, allowing her to share her story and inspire others with her journey from Salvador to Texas.
