Beach Café is the brainchild of Rosi Farrow, a long time swimwear and travel aficionado, who grew up in beach resorts all over the world and who now owns Studio 13 fashion showroom in Notting Hill and buys for luxury hotel boutiques, such as Eden Rock in St Barths. The first Beach Café store will open in Barbados in early 2010.
