Summer is just around the corner and what better way to to highlight the season than with some homegrown Southern California talent. Meet the Ventura, Calif.-based swimwear line Boys + Arrows by Meagan Scott—a brand created with the fun and free-spirited woman in mind. Looking to brand itself as more than just another swimwear line, the line aims at “evoking the memories of summer, sand, and smiles,” whether that means relaxing in the pool in your own backyard or sitting beach-side in a tropical locale.
Designer Meagan Scott grew up surrounded by the sun and surf, having some of her best memories in a bikini and, “knew it was important for [her] to work on something that brought [her] pure happiness.” When asked if her road to entrepreneurship has been an easy one, she sums it up quite nicely: It’s “running around like a chicken, sleepless nights—and when I did sleep I was dreaming about the brand—putting my head down and charging full throttle.”
Taking each development process one step at a time has helped Meagan see the bigger picture and continue to pursue her dream. Noting the challenges many women face when starting out on their own, she says “it was miraculous to watch as people started to take me seriously. I just kept coming back for more; I think sometimes women in my position give up.” Meagan’s advice to other women trying to start their own business is, “never take no for an answer—ever.”
