It is now September and CurleeBikini has had a great summer! So many things have happened since we last blogged. Lets do a recap of what has been going on so that we can catch up.
As you guys may have known, we premiered our 4th collection at the 6th Annual Austin Fashion Week (AFW) back in April. We are so thankful to have had such a positive response to the big event! Our “Sun Sabbath” collection, full of kaftans and exotic prints really caught everyone’s eye. CurleeBikini has been getting a lot of attention both in the Austin area, and abroad. We’ve gained a slue of new, local clients over the Summer… which we LOVE doing custom fit sessions with in our bamboo filled studio! Likewise, our swimwear is still selling like wildfire all over the web: from our first, successful wholesale account with UK-based Gather&See to catching Australia’s attention via Instagram. Here are some of our favorite looks from the show and don’t miss our runway video (you’ll feel just like you’re in the front row): CurleeBikini AFW14 Runway Show.
Mallory Curlee even won one of three awards for the Austin Fashion Fund‘s Most Talented Designer. Only a handful of months later, we remember that day as one that will go down in history: full of texts with lots of exclamation points and joyful tears! This award has opened doors to so many new opportunities for CurleeBikini. Some of the prizes include, but are not limited to, an updated logo design by Meldeen, editorial coverage from Fashionably Austin, and a brand new Bernina 560 Sewing Machine! The CurleeBikini Team (as we are becoming a true team these days) could not be more thankful!
2. This Summer’s Custom Swim
Following the fashion show this bikini season has been extremely busy for CurleeBikini… our busiest and most successful Summer yet! Orders have become larger and larger, as we gain more repeat clients and new wholesale accounts. Below are some of the beautiful swimsuits Mallory has been creating as of late. Mallory even produced a bathing suit for a Texas beauty pageant contestant, for her Miss Texas USA showing. Custom swimwear isn’t custom if you can’t do it all!
3. Summer 2015
There are evermore new and exciting things to come as we prep for Summer 2015! First and foremost, we will be showing at Fashion X Dallas on November 6th. We won’t give away too much yet, but there are inspiration images and new fabrics scattered all of the studio at this exact moment… it’s going to be a tropical dream!
Until next time,
