GabiFresh x swimsuitsforall

AHHH!!! I'm so excited that I can finally share this: I've designed a 5 piece capsule collection for swimsuitsforall (one of the largest swim retailers that carries plus sizes)! We had our photo shoot yesterday and it was so much fun. Nadia Aboulhosn and Maxey Greene looked stunning, and seeing everything I've worked on for the past few months come into fruition was a totally crazy/surreal moment for me. You guys know I'm super passionate about plus size women wearing great swimsuits unapologetically, and after all of the excitement surrounding last year's Fatkini, I thought designing a few of my own would be a wonderful way to continue the movement. The suits will be available online on May 15th, and photos will be released next week. In the mean time, here are some behind-the-scenes shots from yesterday!
