WHO
ISLAND GAL BOUTIQUE is a Canadian based swimwear company proudly rooted in Vancouver.
The brand reflects the free-spirit and courageous soul of its founder and designer, Elizabeth Morelos.
Born in the Philippines- home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Elizabeth named the brand after the Philippine Islands and her husbands nickname to her—Island Gal.

WHY
Since studying Fashion Design and working as a Swimwear Designer of Lululemon Athletica, the Billion-Dollar Yoga and Leisure Apparel Retailer, she felt a longing to further expand her creative outlet and share her passions with the world. Elizabeth designs bikinis with the goal to empower women to love their bodies and true, authentic selves. We want all women to love themselves, and their bodies inside and out.

ELIZABETH IS A LOCAL DESIGNER PROMOTING LOCAL DESIGNERS:
As a way to promote her Swim Brand and share her creations and passion with the World, Elizabeth founded Vancouver’s very first and only Vancouver Swimwear Fashion Show aka VANSWIMFS. Once a year, the Vancouver Swimwear Fashion Show dedicates a night to celebrating the local swimwear fashion scene, bringing together a number of local designers, brands, and talent to showcase their latest Swim collections. It’s Vancouver’s most unique, fun and sexiest event ever! Founded in 2015 and over the past 4 years it's grown to showcase over 16 local Vancouver Swim Brands.
