RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – A VCU political science major is diving headfirst into the bikini industry.
Lisa Opie co-founded Vizcaya Swimwear with business partner Franz Orban in April. Opie said the company’s bikini line has taken off thanks to her connections in the beauty pageant world, and now the pair is looking to South America to start manufacturing the suits by the end of the year.
