INSIDER INTERVIEW: Beach Bunny Swimwear

                   Spring is upon us and with the shedding of our winter jackets and the dream of summertime we begin the ultimate search of finding a new favorite bikini for the season. Privy Doll loves Beach Bunny Swimwear not just because we see them on glistening bodies in Miami Beach, Vegas and yachts alike. The suits fits like a glove, a sexy glove nonetheless, maybe one made of lace and everything nice. We love the inspiration and the story of the designer who started the company when she was a swimsuit model who was frustrated like many of us to find a great fitting but sexy suit. I highly recommend adding a Beach Bunny suit to your summer wardrobe! Dolls also love a good modeling competition. Check out Beach Bunny's annual Swimsuit competition to win a chance to model for Beach Bunny Swimwear. Applications are being reviewed and you can apply on their website. Enjoy the exclusive PrivyDoll interview with Beach Bunny Swimwear!

Label/Company Name:
Beach Bunny Swimwear

3 words to describe your label:
Flirty, sophisticated, and unique

In your opinion what is next season’s trend?
Beach Bunny is truly a brand that stands out on its own and we typically don’t look into trend forecasts as a reference.  Our design team strives to be a step above the rest and I think they hit the mark each year.

What was your inspiration for this season?
Beach Bunny Swimwear’s 2010 collection brings the boudoir to the beach with five dazzling new collections, each brazenly embellished with luxury innovative fabrics and exquisite hardware and trim from around the world.  Make a splash with our Mermaid collection which embodies rich jewel tones and swarovski crystal detailing or embrace your inner Alpha Girl. Create a Tart Noire with our lusciously sun kissed suits.  Show the world you’re a Goddess and be a Class Act in our leather and lace Styles such as Simply Irresistible, Black Magic, Hot in the City, Double Trouble and She’s So California run the gamut from fun-loving flirt, sophisticated lady to sexy chic. Just pick the suit that suits your mood, your look, and your bod.

What are your favorite materials to use?
I love to incorporate materials that normally would not be applied to swimwear.  I LOVE lace, buckles, pearls, chains and innovative fabrics.

Favorite place for brainstorming and day dreaming:
I am a Beach Bunny at heart.  I live right on the beach and see it as an escape for inspiration and relaxation.

Female entrepreneur of the year award should go to:
I think Kim Kardashian is the businesswoman of the year. She is strategic with the brands she affiliates with and has increased their revenue and awareness that they wouldn’t be able to achieve on their own.  Anything she touches turns to gold!

You started in the industry as a swimwear model. What advice would you give about starting your own line?
You have to be passionate and surround yourself with people you trust.  This is not a glamorous job. Trust me!  It takes a lot of work!! 

Spring is around the corner and women will start shopping for bathing suits. What advice would you give to find that perfect suit?
Go in with a positive and confident mindset.  To ensure the ultimately sexy fit in all the right places, Beach Bunny offers a variety of curve-enhancing tops including triangles, bandeaus, halters and underwires. Like our suits, we know that every woman is unique. That’s why we offer our tops and bottoms separately, so you mix-and-match for the perfect fit.

Your line is unique, sexy and has fabulous fit, but what are your pet peeves of swimwear?
Any swim line that does not let you mix and match sizes.  Very few women are the same size on top and bottom!

What kind of press/marketing/celeb spotings has your line received?
You will find more Beach Bunny Swimwear suits than any other designer line in the pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue — and on the amazing bodies of super-models like Bar Refaeli, who donned our Sweet Escape and Crocodile Rock bikini. Our suits have also captured the attention of the media. We’ve been featured in People, InStyle, USA Today, E! News Daily with Ryan Seacrest, Extra and more

We have a lot of models that read our blog and would love to know more about your model search. How often do you run the contest and how does one sign up?
The contest started in December 2009 and runs through July 2010.  You can enter on our website beachbunnyswimwear.com and each month we choose 3 semi finalists for the chance to star in Beach Bunny’s 2011 campaign shot by world renown photographer Yu Tsai.  Winner will be announced during the Miami Swim Show in July.  Anyone can vote so log on to our site to check out our girls!
