We are excited to hear from you!


Corinna Dickenbrok was still quite young when she founded her fashion label Vanilla Sand and therefore tried to learn as much as possible along the way. With no experience in the fashion business, she founded a model label at the time, which was intended to fulfill her desire to work every day for a philosophy and business concept that she could stand behind 100%. In an interview, we spoke to her about the time when it was founded.”

Surfgirl Magazine

Surfgirl is all about to “make your soul happy”. Due to our colourful Brazilian patterns, Vanilla Sand got featured in its latest edition, writing: “Vanilla Sand is a sustainability summer wear brand letting you show off with patterns and form fitting cuts. Born in Lisbon, the brand is comfortable with colours and prints and run on the combination of elegance, effortless cool and enthusiastic youth:”

Eluxe Magazine

Eluxe Magazine is the world’s first-ever publication fully dedicated to sustainable luxury, dedicated to showcasing luxury brands that demonstrate a strong commitment to good ethics and environmental sustainability.

Our brand is highlighted for its ethical ideals and for being female-founded: “Vanilla Sand not only holds feminist ideals, but it is an ethical label all around. The label is valued by women around the globe for its special cuts, natural fabric quality, and consistently sustainable values.”

Purpose Magazin

Once again, we are highlighted for its ethical ideals and for being female-founded in German Purpose Magazin: “With “Vanilla Sand”, Corinna Dickenbrok wants to contribute to changing the fashion industry in the long term, for example with thorough research for environmentally friendly clothing along the supply chain.”

Overview Mag

“A sustainable dose of sexiness”, Overview Mag describes its nice discovery and introduces you to our young, sustainable label: “VANILLA SAND. A playful yet simple label to watch”. More for our German speakers:


Shape Germany writes about Swimwear Goes Green and amazingly features VANILLA SAND Bikini Sporty as must-have this summer thanks to its high-waist bottom fit for longer legs and their appreciation for our overall ocean-friendly production!

I Am Isabel Silva

Isabel Silva, one of the biggest Portuguese television presenter, has chosen VANILLA SAND to show the beauty of sustainable fashion. “Surprisingly sexy, colorful and on top natural.” More for our Portuguese speakers:


The Founder, Corinna, brings with her brand, VANILLA SAND, fashion in line with sustainability. This is rare in an industry that is all too often promoting a “wear it once” throwaway culture:

German-Portuguese fashion label Vanilla Sand combines its founder Corinna Dickenbrok’ s love of Portugal with a passion for sustainable fashion. Founded by the former competitive athlete and business administration graduate on her 26th birthday with a single product, Vanilla Sand sells casual, sensual, sunny designs all over the world after just three years. Today, the collection includes beach fashion for women, men and children, as well as yoga and Pilates fashion – inspired by the beach life of Portugal and Brazil.

It is the fledgling story of a success that benefits people and nature alike: Vanilla Sand produces with fair pay in northern Portugal and Brazil. The material for the bikinis is made predominantly from recycled plastic collected in the course of The
Ocean Cleanup project.

Diversity is also an important concern for founder and CEO Corinna Dickenbrock: Photo locations and models are deliberately distributed around the world to convey as diverse an image of women as possible. In addition, Vanilla Sand is involved in programs to boost women’s self-confidence, for example in Sao Tomé e Príncipe.
