Eco swimwear collection on the RAW Natural Born Artists Runway

Goup of unicorns pre the catwalk show

I feel like i've been away from Sparkles a little bit recently, working on other projects that have been in the public eye (though always working on Sparkles commisions in the background too).

One of the projects thats kept me super busy has been designing, creating, photographing and launching my brand new Swimwear Collection - Mystique of the Sea.

This collection has been created and launched under my other brand: The Lioness and Her Unicorns - though i feel its important to let all the #sparklegang know about it as it has close links to many of the garments I create for Sparkles too. Its almost a perfect bridge between the two brands. 

The collection is made using the latest technology in eco-fabric. It is created from recycled fishing lines (so you are effectively saving the sea while you are stealing hearts. WIN-WIN) and clothing, it is also super soft and supple to the touch. All pieces are fully lined to give you reliable coverage and choosing the quick-dry fabric will help you go from the sea to the street with style. 

So, last week saw my return to RAW Australia  with 8 magical unicorns to show our new Mystique of the Sea Eco Fabric Swimwear Collection.

The Unicorns are from all walks of life, different countries, backgrounds, shapes and sizes, skin and hair colours, heights... some have tattoos, some have piercings. Some have walked a runway before, others are pushing themselves out of their comfort zones for the first time  All have warm hearts and all have bodies that need clothing.

The Lioness and Her Unicorns are more than clothing brand, it’s a way of life.. a feeling, a being part of something, very similar to the amazing #sparklegang thats being growing for all of the garments and items created here. Im huge on communitys, and feling welcome - i'm working to change perceptions of our bodies that we and others have. #allbodiesaregoodbodies.

The Unicorns danced, skipped, walked, shimmied and moved freely and entertained! Together we make the change, and last week was another amazing example of it.

 

Much love, thanks and gratitude goes out to everyone that watched the live feed (shared below in case you haven't seen it) and to those that came along to see it live!

Once I have the official photographers pictures back i'll be sure to share them with you all, as the ladies really embodied feeling comfortable in our own skin, it was incredible!

Your support means the world, and I’m forever grateful! If im ever not around in Sparkles world feel free to shoot me a direct message if you have any questions, and id LOVE for you to take a look at The Lioness and Her Unicorns to see other items and projects that I so thoroulghy enjoy working on and sharing with the world!

Much love,

Ariane
