THOSE SEEN DANCING® is a boutique swimwear label from Honolulu, Hawai‘i. Since our founding in 2017, we have been dedicated to creating elevated swim staples in unique silhouettes, inspired by the beautiful beach babes we grew up with. We are known for mingling cheeky cuts, made for keeping tan lines to a minimum, with bold colorways and fabrics to create versatile pieces needed in every bikini lover's collection.
Just like the city we're from, Those Seen Dancing emodies a distinctive combination of understated tropical glamour with a modern edge; where the simplicity of white sandy beaches rich with native culture meets the vibrance of an international metropolis.
When you purchase a Those Seen Dancing piece, you’re getting much more than an object; you’re getting hundreds of hours of errors, experimentation, and creation; a small part of our lives. We design each piece in-house and work directly with a small production team to ensure our swim is original and ethically made. For us, sustainability is continuous; we are constantly improving our processes to bring you beautifully crafted pieces that do not harm the earth and benefit local communities.
We believe a swimsuit has the power change your whole attitude. Through sharing our passion for swimwear we want to empower women to feel confident and comfortable while showing off their skin.
Never be afraid to break out of your confort zone.
And always remember to listen for the music.
Those Seen Dancing is founded and designed by Keari Shibuya, who was born and raised on the south shore of O‘ahu in Honolulu, Hawai‘i. Inspired by the diverse cultures of the world, Keari travels often to her second island home in Bali, Indonesia where she creates new designs and oversees Those Seen Dancing's swimwear production. After earning a B.S. in Environmental Sciences from San Diego State University and graduating from the [In]Land program for landscape architecture and environmental design at the UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design, Keari devoted several years to the environmental remediation, engineering and construction industry before launching Those Seen Dancing in 2017.
