About Merry Christine

It is not as important for me to be liked as it is to be understood.

I have been creating clothing, including bathing suits since I was nine years old. Having a love for fashion since I was a child brought me to where I am today, the finest suit maker in the industry.

I studied foundation and garment design, men’s classical tailoring, and pattern making at the New York Fashion Institute of Technology.

I started out making competition suits for bodybuilders at my gym in Manhattan. Bodybuilding was the only competition that existed in the 1980’s.

In 1991 the fitness category was introduced for women. For the fitness competitors I made fitness routine costumes, two piece posing suits, and one piece posing suit.

In 2003 the figure category became a reality, so I began designing one and two piece figure competition suits.

In 2010 when the bikini category was introduced, I began making competition suits for the girls wanting that perfect little sparkly bikini to wear on stage.

And recently, two new men’s categories were introduced: physique and classic physique. Physique is a pair of board shorts, but the classic physique is a special “old school” style trunk.

For all of these new categories I have taken intense care to make top quality competition suits with the help of some wonderful athletes giving their time to use as models.

And now, I present my creations to you on this website.
