Sunseeker designs bejeweled swimsuit

Australian swimwear label Sunseeker has teamed up with jeweller Ann Middleton to design a 133 carat swimsuit.

The garment is adorned with more than 220 diamonds and pearls and is valued at AUS$1m (£583,302).

Model Samantha Harris will wear the garment during the ‘Sunseeker Swim Model Spectacular’ at the inaugural Gold Coast Swim Fashion Festival in Queensland on November 28.

The fashion show will also feature the swimwear latest collection by Sunseeker.

Middleton told the Courier Mail that almost 100 Australian South Sea pearls were incorporated into the design.
"Hundreds of hours went into creating the swimsuit and we used as many Australian gems and pearls as possible," Middleton said.

"I hadn’t done a swimsuit before but when I saw the design, I knew I wanted to create a seemingly simple, perfect, beautiful garment."
