HISTORY – ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Beach Riot founder and designer Nicole Hanriot-Tinkess has always had a love for beachwear and travel. Spending time at the beach has inspired Nicole’s style, whether it’s home in Orange County, or in the turquoise blue waters of Bora Bora. After making quite the name for herself as former licensee and designer at SoCal lifestyle brand Tavik, it soon came time for this designer to branch out. When Beach Riot was born, the person Nicole designed for was a bit like herself. Taking bold colors, eye-catching prints and timeless designs, Nicole created Beach Riot, launching the brand in 2012. With the Beach to Street motto, Nicole continued to design amazing, wearable pieces for customers around the globe. Shortly after the takeoff of the brand, Nicole soon realized there was a hole in the market for activewear that really made a statement. In 2017, Beach Riot launched Sport Riot which embodies the same jetsetter persona with the lively colors and prints that fans have always loved. Becoming a mother has also influenced the brand, with the expansion into Mommy + Mini, Nicole now takes inspiration from her children to make those collections come to life. With the growing success of Beach Riot and more of the world to see, nothing is stopping Nicole from making her dreams a reality.
