Owner of BikiniBird, Tiana Gamble started working in retail as one of her early jobs. Working in the industry led her to go to trade shows where she was able to learn about more roles in fashion. Tiana then peaked interest in sales rep roles which led to more positions, such as design and merchandising.
She eventually made the move from her fashion job in California, back to Hawaii looking to fill a creative outlet.
In 2010, Tiana and good friend Ally Lopez, wanted to start a blog soon realizing there was nothing that addressed tropical fashion and swimwear like they desired. Thus, Bikini Bird was born. The two were writing about everything they liked in swimwear, going to trade shows, and meeting brand owners and models.
After a few years of working hard on the BikiniBird blog, they started the online shop with 100k followers in 2014.
Motivated to be her own boss, Tiana kept striving for success with her blog and store, “Be what you want to attract”, she says, “If you work hard and you're willing to do everything you can, you will make it”.
With the success of many pop-up shops, BikiniBird expanded into two boutique shops on Oahu that specialize in designer swimwear, cover-ups, and accessories. BikiniBird strives to inspire customers with new styles and brands- focusing on collaborations and exclusives.
