Thalassa was born in Holland and raised on Curacao; a Dutch island in the Caribbean Sea. She studied Hotel Management and Yoga in The Netherlands and she worked the greater part of her career in small to medium sized companies in The Netherlands, USA and Curacao.
After living abroad for over 16 years, and missing the beach life she craves so much, she decided to return to her Curacao roots where she presently resides with her lovely partner and two teenage kids.
Thalassa always dreamt of a career in fashion and in 2015 she decided to realize her dreams and started her own company in the area of fashion she loves most: Resort Wear.
Thalassa loves to work out and practice yoga and she adores the island beach life. She enjoys traveling, and is very passionate about fashion. Fashion, wanderlust and the eternal lure of travel are sources of inspiration for her collections. She pulls ideas from her surroundings; whether they are simple aspects of her day-2-day life or her travels to exotic destinations. “I think inspiration comes from everywhere all the time—you just need to open up to it and soak it in!”
Her goal is to create wearable fashion. “I focus on creating glamorous pieces, while keeping each fit simple, flattering and sexy. Therefore my collection is ideal for both casual and more chic occasions.”
Thalassa votes for quality. She is determined to use only the best fabrics, embellishments and accessories in her designs. “I am a perfectionist, and I love to apply this to my resort wear!" As a result, her Resort Wear is synonymous with quality, glamour, & beauty.
