Monica Wise has big dreams for L*Space, the luxury swim brand in Lake Forest. Monica's been working hard on the business for nine years and is the sole owner.
The brand is really getting traction, landing some big accounts such as Victoria's Secret and select Anthropologie and Macy's West stores. Her hope is to be acquired by someone in the surf industry someday so she has the resources to go big with the brand. She's been approached by people outside the industry, but hasn't been interested in partnering with them.
Here's a link to the story I wrote about L*Space for OC METRO in the current edition.
