Kate Upton is only 19, but she's already modeled for Sports Illustrated, Victoria's Secret and Guess. Now, she can add designer to her quickly expanding resume.
Kate's been modeling for Beach Bunny Swimwear for a while now, but at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim her role will be somewhat different. Kate will take to the runway of course, but she'll be wearing a bikini that she designed herself!
When we chatted with Kate, we wanted to know all the nitty gritty about her first turn as a designer. She said:
When Beach Bunny asked me to design a swimsuit, I was so excited. Because obviously I model swimsuits all the time and to be able to design one just for me was really exciting. I'm going to have two different designs and I wanted one to be more glamorous and more like a party swimsuit and the other to be a beach bum flirty girl swimsuit. The more glamorous one is going to be at Miami Swim Week, on the runway to have a little taste of it. I'm really excited about it...It's going to come in three colors, so you can pick whatever. It'll be white, black and fuchsia.
Kate is overjoyed at her accomplishment and we can't wait to see the results. Good luck, Kate!
