Living in the Tampa Bay area, or anywhere in Florida for that matter, the “seasons” often mesh into one – or two – many scorching months of summer weather and a brief cold period. Of course I’m not one to complain about long summers and soirees by the pool, but any fashionable gal knows finding the perfect bathing suit can be exhausting. Thanks to Tampa Bay Fashion Week designer, Trineice Cagua, the search has been made easier. Her swimwear line, J. Cagua, comes in an assortment of styles from one piece suits to string bikinis. Trineice’s sexy, yet tasteful designs are triggered by her own love for poolside fetes and summertime in Florida.
Trineice graduated in 2004 from the International Academy of Design & Technology with a degree in fashion design and marketing, along with a dream to create her own swimwear line. A dream that soon became reality and a success, with dedication and the assistance of her two longtime best friends. She was first invited to Tampa Bay Fashion Week in 2009 to showcase her line and has returned every year since. The mother of two believes in encouraging and mentoring young girls and amidst designing also finds time to support the Girlz to Women cause and other programs.
J. Cagua swimwear is not only durable, but is made tailored to the individual specifications of Trineice’s clientele – ie: comfortable and totally on trend. Her goal is to make women feel confident and fashionable while wearing her designs.

Though local department stores may decorate with pumpkins and pre-mature Christmas trees, it is always swimsuit season in Tampa Bay. With bright sophistication and exotic sex appeal, Trineice Cagua brings excitement like no other with her line, JCagua.
With a delightful mixture of colors and prints in high-fashion cuts, the Zimbabwe collection features plenty of suits fit for any tropical princess. One in particular features a triangle halter top with thin black stripes transcending into neon green for a bit of flavor. The halter straps provide a thicker material of matching black stripe, looping through the top of the cup for a unique twist on the classic triangle top. The coordinating bottom utilizes a band of neon green which melts into solid black. This suit alone certainly provides a wonderful indication of the immense creative talent within Trineice Cagua.
From the Brush Stroke collection, a dazzling one-piece is cut with a revealing plunge which ends in a u-shape, rather than the traditional V. In a vibrant watercolor print, the suit is complete with a thin black belt crossing over the mid-section for a bit of grecian inspiration.
Who is the mind behind these brilliant swimwear looks? Trineice Cagua studied at the International Academy of Design and Technology where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design and Marketing. Toward the end of her degree, Trineice came to the realization that her main passion was indeed swimwear. Driven by her love of Florida’s summers and poolside parties, Trineice founded JCagua.
Currently, Trineice is anxiously awaiting the arrival of Fashion Week where she will present exciting new styles from her line, JCagua.

J. Cagua is a sophisticated and stylish swimwear collection by fashion designer, Trineice Cagua. She will be joining our runway yet again for Fashion Week Tampa Bay 2009.
This Floridian beauty started at the International Academy of Design. Since then she has showcased in several magazines like Lake, Oasis, Black Men and Karu & Y Show by Miami Fashion Weekly Magazine.
Trineice understands that every client is uniquely different which is why she tailors her swimwear to the client’s exact specifications. This gives the client swimwear that is comfortable and stylish. She is also always incorporating the newest fashion trends into her swimwear designs to keep her clients fashion forward.
I love her collection from last year’s Fashion Week Tampa Bay! The collection had African prints with earthy tones and colors like black, white, red, green and orange.
Whether it’s from the runways to the sunrays, J.Cagua swimwear will make any women feel sexy, fashionable and confident. I can’t wait to see the newest collection from Trineice Cagua September 24th during Fashion Week Tampa Bay 2009!
This one piece white swimsuit is one of my favorite J. Cagua swimsuits!
