A model closed the Bondi Bather swimwear show at Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week on Tuesday wearing a string bikini made of sand.
The bikini was hand-painted with sand from Bondi Beach by make-up artist and body painter Becca Gilmartin.
Imogen Anthony, model and girlfriend of Australian radio and TV personality Kyle Sandilands, described wearing the bikini on the catwalk as “liberating” on Instagram.
“Last night’s experience was one in a million.. Closing the @bondibather show at @mbfashionweek, wearing nothing but an authentic Bondi Beach sand ‘kini by @beccagilmartin!!,” she wrote.
Bondi Bather is a clothing and swimwear label based on Bondi Beach. All garments are made in Australia.
