In Spring of 2018, I collaborated with Durham-based Runaway Brand to create a custom bikini collection. I designed and produced three styles using custom fabric from Spoonflower which Runaway-owner, Gabe, drew.
I make a large number of custom swimsuits throughout the year, and these are some of my absolute favorites! More to come.
2017 Swimwear Collection
The 2017 Maderas Beach Co. swim collection was inspired by the countryside of France and Spain. We have an orange blossom print on a pale pink, a beautiful sage-y green, a solid, textured black, a large floral, a provencal stripe, and a blush pink. This collection features 2 bikini style tops, 2 bikini style bottoms, and 1 maillot. All fabrics except the black geo, are from Spoonflower, a Durham based company.
2016 Swimwear Collection
The 2016 Maderas Beach Co. collection was inspired by the South American west coast - Tulum, San Juan del Sur... Blues and greens, visual textures brought this collection to life. Select suits from this collection were made available to purchase in The Mothership in Durham in 2017.
2016 Swimwear Collection for Taylor Monroe Boutique
This custom Maderas Beach Co. collection was designed exclusively for Taylor Monroe Boutique in Dayton, Oh. This was a collaboration between myself and the owners and we selected some fun florals, stripes, and a solid black to suit the customers of TayMo. This collection sold very well, and only a few suits remain. The white background floral was one of my own custom designs.
Lilias & Love + Althea Harper
Between 2014 and 2016, I worked with Project Runway finalist, Althea Harper, on a collection for her resort-wear brand and multiple collections of her baby-wear line, Lilias & Love. I designed and produced swimwear, dresses, rompers, headbands, vests, leggings, hats, and much more for both brands.
