SEPTEMBER was created by Erika Seiko Togashi, a designer from New York City with a love and passion for surfing. With over fifteen years of design experience for Patagonia, The North Face, J. Crew and Deus Ex Machina, Erika created a product perfectly combining the two.
The idea came to life in Bali, while living and surfing its tropical coasts. She noticed a lack of timeless, elegant and sustainable surf & swimwear in the industry. To her there was no value in buying another non-functional over-designed surf swimsuit, one that after a few surfs would look stretched/faded and worn-out (just to name a few).
