About Us

 

Clem Swimwear, founded in 2016 by J’Lysa Wilson, is a Black-owned swimwear brand that provides unique swimwear for women of all shapes.

The brand is inspired and named after Clementine Johnson, J’Lysa’s late aunt. With Clementine’s influence and encouragement, J’Lysa pursued a career in fashion; graduating from The Fashion Institute of Technology in 2015. Clem Swimwear honors the legacy of her family by naming each swimsuit after a family member. 

Swimsuits are designed by J’Lysa and hand crafted in New York using the finest Italian fabric that aligns the curves of a woman’s body to make her feel confident. 

As a Black-owned swimwear brand, Clem Swimwear strives to break the stigma of diversity in fashion by collaborating with women and minorities, who are often underrepresented in fashion.
