The CEO/ Founder/Owner of Wet Peach Swimwear, WPS Limited LLC is Michigan born Melissa Ilievski. Ilievski, a swimwear model who began her career at the age of 14, was inspired to start the company at the age of 15, because she “could never find the right suit that stood out from the rest. A short time later, she approached a Facebook Friend, to put her visions together on paper , so she can bring them to life. According to Melissa, she made sure, that both of them could communicate and understand what her dreams and visions are for Wet Peach Swimwear.
Melissa says, she is “meticulous about perfection” and about “making sure the product is 110% before it hits the market”. She always tries to anticipate future trends so that she can be “ahead of the pack”.
What sets Wet Peach Swimwear apart from the competition is that, in addition to selling swimwear, they’re also selling a lifestyle that, encompasses “the beauty of Europe and the glam of Hollywood”. Wet Peach Swimsuits are only available on-line at the moment but, when next season comes out, Wet Peach Swimwear will begin showing up in stores all across the United States and Europe.
In the future, Melissa wants Wet Peach Swimwear “to become one of the biggest brands in fashion, and to be on the tip of the tongue of every celebrity, both in the United States and around the world” and to show up at “beach parties and swimwear based events, the world over.”
Wet Peach Swimwear is off to a great start. In 2010 alone, Wet Peach’s Swimsuits were featured prominently at three different high profile events: Miami Groove Cruise in Miami, Florida, Winter Music Conference in South Beach, Florida and The Ultimate Fantasy Weekend in Palm Springs, California .
