About Us

We are inspired by contemporary Australian style and a passion for excellence. We are a majority female owned and run business based in Sydney. Founder Dale McCarthy and Creative Director Karla Clarke our Creative Director, create elegant, sophisticated swimwear & apparel using only the finest quality fabrics and premium local craftsmanship.

Our swimwear is now recognised worldwide for its emphasis on pared-back, sleek silhouettes that use our three, technically advanced and swim base-cloths that deliver superior performance to optimise look, fit, feel and longevity. 

We are proud to be stocked around the world by prestigious retailers including David Jones in Australia, Harrods in London, Harvey Nichols in the Middle East and Moda Operandi and Net-a-Porter online.

We have an ongoing commitment to uncompromising quality, ethics and sustainability. Every fabric is consciously sourced for sustainable certification. Each piece is painstakingly fitted and refitted to perfect its cut. Each trim is hand selected or custom made. Each garment is expertly crafted in Sydney, the world's capital of swimwear. 

Our mission statement is “To empower and inspire the summer style of women all over the world, while never compromising on quality, people or planet.”

To that end, we have become certified as a B Corporation.

Our solemn wish is that when our customers wear BONDI BORN it brightens their day, with added body confidence and an elevated sense of style.
