Island Girl by Andrew Asch from California Apparel News

Tamara Catz is a real island girl.

In Maui, she designs wedding dresses, casual wear, caps, swimwear, even dresses made out of the surfer’s rash guards for her self-named brand Tamara Catz. For manufacturing, she makes her island fashions in yet another island paradise, this one an ocean away in Bali.

But she went mainland recently. Last month, she opened a pop-up shop in the surfy-hipster neighborhood of Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice. The pop-up is scheduled to close sometime in June. But Bethany, manager of the Venice store, (wearing rash guard top) says that the island designer plans to keep an outpost around Venice.

we believe Paia and Venice are sister towns. It’s so much fun to hear people coming into the store in Abbot Kinney and say “I was just in Paia, I LOVE Maui, I used to live on Maui, I was in your store in Paia last year..” We are so grateful to have Paia and now Venice in our lives!!
