The Bikini Hut is now South Shore Swimwear.
South Shore Swimwear is a licensed business in Scituate, MA.
I am a Member of the American Sewing Guild; a professional sewing association.
I have been designing apparel and making clothing for more than 20 years. In 1998, I started my own swimwear business called Bikini Hut. The Bikini Hut changed it's name to South Shore Swimwear in March 2012 and specializes in custom made swimwear for womens and girls. I have now expanded my line to carry custom made jeans and halter tops; in addition to swimwear and coverups. I work with a variety of models and photographers and Boston's best modeling agencies. Each year our company produces an annual fashion show and a Calendar. Prior to starting my own business, I was an Apparel Designer for Reebok International and a Graphic Designer for Champion Expo. I travelled extensively for Reebok to Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan and Canada. I studied Fashion Design at Parsons School of Design in New York and Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. In 1989, I received an Associates Degree in Fashion Merchandising from Fisher College in Boston. I love fashion and working with models, photographers, hair stylists and makeup artists. I can offer references from other models, photographers and agencies.
I prefer to find models who will work TFP or CD; however we do offer monetary compensation to those models who fit our criteria for look and body type. In addition to monetary compensation, I also offer my models complimentary, one-of-a-kind swimwear and a CD/DVD of all images taken. I try to promote my models, photographers and stylists as much as my swimwear or apparel. You are always welcome to bring a friend or escort to any of our events!
