The owner and fashion designer, Rachael Surita, born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, makes her a true carioca. She attended High School in Fort Worth, TX as an exchange student. Later went to work in México in 2008, where Rachael designed, elaborated, and sold Brazilian designed summer dresses in her first collection. Earning her fashion and design degree from Senai Cetiqt, in Rio, she flourished after working 7 years in the fashion industry for renowned names in the Brazilian market.
When Rachael started wearing her own creations to the gym and as every day wear she was inspired to create her designs available for her friends, family and strangers who complemented her and asked where they could buy her outfits. That gave voice to her personality and exemplified her individual style. When she moved to the United States she saw the opportunity to bring a Brazilian way of life in to the fitness wear thru colors and patterns. With most of her family living in the United States, Rachael now calls the U.S.A her home.
Each item is personally inspected by Rachael; she wears and gets involved in all stages of the processes making sure that each item is extremely well made. Rachael loves volleyball, cycling, hiking and nature. She practices healthy eating habits and exercise. With time she began to understand the unique needs of women who exercise.
CARIOCA.SOU fitness wear is always on the lookout for new fashion, styles and high quality materials to offer woman a unique athletic wear with the right styles.
