Keiko was designing costumes in L.A. when photographer Phillip Dixon tapped her to make swimsuits for the cover of Oui magazine in 1979. A star was born. A swimsuit collection followed, sold at Bergdorfs, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York. In 1995, she opened her first retail store in Soho, adding a mens line.
A very unique aspect of Keiko NY is the capacity to create custom swimsuits. This option is extremely valuable to women who have a hard time finding suits that fit just right. Today, Keiko offers these made to measure suits in addition to her off the rack collection. She carries a wide variety of swimsuit styles as well as lingerie, activewear and men’s swim.
All swimsuits are available at Keiko New York’s retail store located at 128 West 23rd Street (between 6th and 7th avenues) in New York City.
