Kristyn Goddard, the founder and designer of Paradise Ranch, is an avid traveler that enjoys vacationing at renowned resorts around the globe. In preparation for such trips, Kristyn was surprised by the lack of available swimwear options for women over the age of thirty-five. So, she developed the Paradise Ranch collection to embrace, not isolate, this often underrepresented minority in the swimwear/resortwear market sector. Kristyn works diligently out of her Los Angeles design house developing new concepts and bringing her vision to life with her pattern makers, design team and fabric mills guiding them all to design every style with attention to fit, trim details, and fabrications while always keeping quality control at the forefront of the design aesthetic.
Kristyn Goddard leads a charmed life. The collection is a combination of her vast personal and business experiences. She’s always had a love for the fashion world from a young age and worked as an apparel industry fit model. Next, she embraced a long career as a Thoroughbred exercise rider, and founded The Women’s Jockey Association. Shortly after she opened The Paradise Ranch Racing School. The only one at the time in the country. She is an avid lover of all animals big and small. This love of pets would lead Kristyn Goddard to open the first cage free licensed boarding facility in the country, Paradise Ranch Pet Resort. Kristyn resides with her husband Brian Kneier and their three beloved pets in Sun Valley, CA. Kristyn’s zestful spirit and love for humanity and animals - along with her quest to design the perfect fitting swimsuit so that all women can love their bodies, from beach to street - is how she creates a perfect slice of PARADISE.
