The week leading up to a photoshoot is always quite a strange time, our 2 directors are lost to a mad dash of collating 100’s of different samples from around the world at the same time as having to negotiate logistics of baggage allowances (it’s hard to travel light when you are transporting the majority of next years beachwear collections!)

Swimwear designers are no longer seeing the one-piece as having to be practical or offering coverage for the body-conscious and we are seeing ladies of all ages are opting for a full swimsuits with flattering cuts, fabulous prints and beautiful embellishments.
