Founder, chief designer and 2016 Branson Centre Entrepreneur Andrea Wilson launched Absolutely Unique Virgin Islands, an online apparel company in 2015. The store sells trendy and unique beachwear and accessories that promote the beautiful Virgin Islands.
With more than two decades as a graphic artist, her first in-house line – The Islander – has rocked runaways across the Caribbean and recently at the Orange County Fashion Week in California.
The Islander Swim Collection is made with original prints of amazing scenes from around the Virgin Islands. The mosaic print of stunning landscape is Andrea’s signature.
America’s Next Top Model Naima Mora is the face of the swimwear line tailored to meet the specific needs of clientele, from the avid surfer and fun-loving teenager to the mum who loves sailing and fashionista on the go. Andrea’s designs marry comfort, style and colour/print and stand out in the market place because each piece is associated with an island and truly captures the essence of the Virgin Islands.
The Anegada Bliss swim top or the Road Town Hype bikini bottom. Our Virgin Gorda Surf’s Up swim trunks and Jost Van Dyke Pirate rash guard are sleek and a comfortable fit for men and women small to xlarge.
It’s fun, fresh and unique.
“I have spent the last two years building a Virgin Islands swimwear brand that stands out and is associated with quality.”
The Islander Swim Collection is fast becoming the number one swimwear line in the territory, with pieces in stores on Tortola, Virgin Gorda and Norman Island, thousands of loyal online followers and customers in the United States, Caribbean, South America and Europe.
“What I have discovered since launching the collection in 2016 is that tourists love our pieces because it is chic wearable souvenirs, while Virgin Islanders show territory pride by wearing our collection – contestants of the Miss British Virgin Islands Universe Pageant proudly wore our pieces at the July 2017 pageant.”
