The design was the easiest part because I knew what kinda color and style I wanted (I’m a graphic designer by education). Whereas developing the fit wasn’t as easy. I have never done this before but Marie helped me alot and added her knowledge of product development and pattern making.
We made the first one-piece sample, went for a surf in it and made another one integrating some final changes. Now the cut is perfect, it stays on and I literally live in it 😊
The Cowabunga Surf Bikini Top and Brazilian Bottoms have already existed in Zealous’s swimwear collection and were my favorite styles. With our ZxZ collaboration, I was able to add my personal touch to them.
