So we couldn't find an interesting swimsuit for less than $300. Kat ( my girlfriend and lovely model/photographer ) and I decided that we had enough ideas to make our own. So we went off to learn to sew and design.

These are two quickie shots we did in our living room - no make-up etc... and the first time I've shot images in RAW.

This is one of the experimentals:



- Model: Kat herself @ Percent Management ( new Miami agency )

This is from our upcoming Collection:



- Model: Adrienne @ Next


Tell me what you think...

We're also offering great rates on custom suits.

The second one, suit and model, is my favorite. Did you make the second one , too? If so, how much would you charge for one?

All kidding aside, good luck with the launch of the line.

The first one is cool, but I swear, I've seen the second one in the 1982 Sears catalog.

Way back when, I dated a fashion design major for a while. I can't believe you learned to design and sew by starting with stretch lycra and swimsuits. Amazing job.

Photos OK, too, BTW.

Jford... thank you sir, for pointing out something I never thought anyone here would know. Lycra isn't easy to deal with.

Jetboy... PM me... I'd be happy to make one for you.

Steve - fortunately, the white tans through.

Gaborm - thanks for the kind words about the first, and I find it strange that you memorized the 1982 Sears catalog.... but hey, every prophet in his house right?

We'll be shooting our first Look Book soon - I never thought I'd be my own client. I hope I'm not a pain in the ass client to myself.

More importantly, can you afford yourself or will your check bounce. Non-paying clients are the worst.
