The Company
Johnny Vincent Swimwear dba Johnny Vincent Resortwear (Johnny Vincent) was founded in 2009 by designer Celeste Johnny. Johnny Vincent is known for its sexy swim and resort wear pieces made in luxury fabrics to accent the shape of a woman. Many of Johnny Vincent's swimwear pieces are multifunctional allowing for them to be used both as swimwear and as tops for regular dressing. This is particularly helpful for the woman traveler who wants to minimize the amount of clothing she takes on a trip. Johnny Vincent’s multifunctional swimwear is quick drying so that they can easily be washed, dried and worn again on the same trip.

Johnny Vincent recently underwent a major reorganization improving the business side of the company in order to properly manage the company’s growth. As a result of this reorganization Johnny Vincent added new executive management.

For the first time in 2012 Johnny Vincent participated in the annual Swim Week in South Miami Beach, Florida which is anchored by the historic Swim Show and Mercedes Benz Swim. Also in 2012 Johnny Vincent introduced its first full resort wear line which included the brand's cutting edge style setting swimwear and introduced a variety of cover-ups, dresses, jumpsuits, bottoms and tops to round out its resort wear selections.

Looking ahead to 2013 Johnny Vincent will more than double its swim and resort wear offerings, further expand its on-line store presence, move into more international boutiques and offer a new line for its department store customers.
