As a female entrepreneur,  I am celebrating other female-founded small businesses in our community with our #femalefounders initiative. While many small businesses are struggling to make it through this pandemic; I continue to be impressed with the creativity and innovation shown by my peer group of female entrepreneurs as they pivot their businesses to continue to serve their customers.

I decided to become an entrepreneur after 20+ years of full time corporate work because I needed to be more present for my family.   As a female executive, the pressures of being my best self in work and in my personal life were a struggle. Many of us share a similar story, and I am honoured to be in the same circle as these inspiring women, who's stories and businesses I am proud to share.

We will be featuring a different local female-founded small business bi-weekly.

We are stronger together.

Introducing: ISKKA Swim


Love Every Body.

“This is about understanding what women need and want in a bathing suit – the look, the fit, the fabric. How much does it cover? How much does it reveal? And, most importantly, how does it make me feel inside and out? It is the reason I created ISK-KA. I wanted to design a line of swimwear that loves every body individually.” - Rachel Fox 

Sustainable made sexy.

Iskka sources all their swimsuit fabrics from an exclusive mill in Milan where they monitor every single stage of the production cycle to reduce the usage of water, energy, chemicals and waste.

They support a number of leading-edge conservation programmes in collaboration with prestigious partners and international organizations like the World Wildlife Foundation.
