Vanessa Frota is a fitness influencer and small business owner originally hailing from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Her passion for her country is the basis for her brand and company, Rio Soul Beachwear, an online store that stocks the most vibrant and trendy bikinis and workout gear.
She also has a love of all things Samba and takes part in various shows and parades, although, sadly she hasn't been able to do any of this during the pandemic.
Her collection is inspired by the colours of Brazil and fun and funky prints are available across all offerings from beachwear to gym-wear. The crochet bikinis are a firm favourite and, keeping things in the family, are made by her mother back home.
We got to chat to her and find out all about Rio Soul Beachwear, her Samba life and so much more.
