A couple weeks ago, I got the chance to fly to Miami c/o Asos Getaway for Swim Week! I got to touch base with my favorite swimwear designer Monica Wise of L*SPACE Swim. She seriously is so down-to-earth and hilarious! I had the best time interviewing her and checking out her latest collection. Read on to see what advice she has for aspiring models, designers and fashion bloggers!
LOVE FASHION | LIVE LIFE talks swimwear, social media and more with L*SPACE!!
LFLL: Hi Monica! with Miami Swim Week right around the corner, what styles can we expect to see on the runway?
Monica Expect to see some of our most sexy suits to date. Strappy styles and an assortment of resort wear that can take you from day to night.
LFLL: What are some of your inspirations when designing your collections?
LFLL: How important do you think social media is in regards to marketing your brand? Do you think it’s necessary for every brand to have a social presence and why?
Monica: Social media has been huge for us as a brand. It allows us to tell a story about who we are and what we are about through imagery and conversation directly to our consumers. It gives us a personality and a connection with our fans.
Monica: My fringe has for sure been the biggest draw for the brand. I've been doing fringe for about 8 seasons and always try to update it and make it fresh. It was a risk when I first introduced it but its a trend that people embrace.
LFLL: In an industry where image is everything, what piece of advice would you share with aspiring models, designers and fashion bloggers?
Monica: This industry can be very grueling and brutal. One has to have total self confidence and not take things personally. But it's a fun industry. My advice to is hone in on your skills and if its something that you are passionate about network network network.
To the wonderfully FAB Monica Wise - thank you so much for taking the time to talk fashion and inspirations with me. You're totally a complete delight to interview and have fun with. It didn't even feel like I was interviewing you! I hope to have more conversations with you in the near future. I love what you're doing with L*SPACE and I'm a total fan of your collection!/p>
