The daughter of a beach volleyball player, Brazilian star Eduarda ‘Duda’ Lisboa grew up in bikinis, playing on several different beaches around Brazil while her mother competed. Beachwear continued in her life during her teens as she decided to follow in her mother’s footsteps and pursue a career on the sand as well, and, since September, they have also become a big part of her future.
A fashion lover, the 25-year-old Brazilian has finally decided to put in motion one of her long-time personal dreams and started her own beachwear company.
“Although I’m still young and will be playing beach volleyball for several years, I’ve always spent some time thinking what I was going to do when my career was over,” she told Volleyball World in an exclusive interview. “I knew I wanted to start my own business, but wasn’t sure what exactly it was going to be. Fashion was a hobby at first, but then became a passion and I just thought it would make a lot of sense if I had a beachwear company since it’s something I wear every single day and that has a connection with my history. Being able to live these two passions simultaneously has been a dream come true.”
