Meet the Designer

West Indies Wear is designed by Australian designer, Kim Van Loo. (orders are shipped from Tennessee in USA though) Kim started West Indies Wear when she was living, working and sailing around the Caribbean.

"I learnt the hard way what it's like to struggle in the heat and humidity, so I found these beautiful soft lightweight cotton fabrics and started designing fun tropical clothes that I knew would help me keep cool". That was back in 2006.

Fast forward to 2023 and Kim's designs are worn by women all over the world! To learn more about Kim and see behind the scenes in her Australian design studio as she designs the 2024 collection, click the link.
