CHAMA SWIM was created by Sofia Beschen. Sofia grew up on the beaches of Venezuela and has modeled swim wear all over the world. She has been modeling for 15 years and has been featured in Self Magazine, Surfing Magazine Swimsuit Edition's cover, Bikini.com and America's Next Top Model. Her experience in the modeling and swimwear industry has given her extensive knowledge on design, trends, marketing, modeling and all of the other important things that go into creating a brand. CHAMA stands for girlfriend in Venezuela and Sofia embodies this energy in everything she does, whether it’s designing swim wear, taking care of her kids, teaching ballet or volunteering for benefits, she treats everyone with love, kindness and care. CHAMA SWIM embodies this spirit and brings a breath of fresh air to the beach life style.
