Who We Are
Founded in Honolulu, Hawai‘i in 2017, THOSE SEEN DANCING® was born from a lifelong obsession with bikinis.
Our signature is in reimagining the most iconic Brazilian swimwear silhouettes using eco-conscious fabrics
to create unique pieces that every true bikini maven needs in her collection.
At the heart of our brand is thoughtful design and production.
For us, sustainability is continuous; our goal is to create unique, beautiful pieces that do the least harm to the earth while benefiting local communities, all while making you stand out on the beach.
We believe swimwear can empower us individually and collectively.
Never be afraid to break out of your comfort zone.
And always remember to listen for the music.
About the founder
Those Seen Dancing is designed and founded by Keari Shibuya, who was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawai‘i. Drawn to the beauty of Bali and its similarities to her home, Keari spends much of her time there where she designs and oversees Those Seen Dancing's swimwear production. After earning a B.S. in Environmental Sciences from San Diego State University and completing the [In]Land program for Landscape Architecture and Environmental Design at the UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design, Keari worked as an environmental scientist and devoted several years of her career to the environmental remediation industry before launching Those Seen Dancing at the end of 2017.
