Francesca Aiello, the youngest designer ever to show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, presented her brand, Frankies Bikinis, at the event earlier this month.
The 19 year-old from California showcased ‘The Hanalei Dreams’ collection, inspired by the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
The Cruise 2015 collection has a bohemian chic vibe infused with a tropical twist, with crochet designs and tribal prints.
Frankie’s Bikinis is an independent line of swimsuits and bikinis made in the US.
The brand aims to satisfy the needs of surfers who demand functionality and style when they hit the waves.
Other swimwear brands showing in Miami this year included Wildfox Swim, Beach Bunny, Mara Hoffman, L*Space and Aguaclara.
