ANI bikinis are vintage inspired, innovative pieces designed and produced with love locally in Southern California.
Hello Beautiful friends! Thank you for checking out my project on Kickstarter!
I am here because my first collection was a great success and I’m ready for round two. In 2010, I began designing, creating, and sewing together my own hand-made one of a kind bikinis. I would buy fabric locally and sew up whatever pieces came to mind. The demand for ANI bikinis came in June of 2010 after the success of my own fashion show that included a total of 25 different bikinis.

With 2012 samples ready, and orders being placed, the money raised by Kickstarter mainly cover events hosting the new collection, as well as fabric sourcing, photoshoots, and production— this is everything necessary to launch my 2012 [LOVE STREET] collection.
I take extreme pride in the selection and quality of the fabrics I choose. I use unique, hand-dyed, textured fabrics and trims that enhance the collection to its fullest extent. I love using fabrics that stand out and make others ask, “where’d you get that?”
The inspiration behind the [LOVESTREET] collection comes from my love of vintage design and the California lifestyle in the 60’s and 70’s. Just hangin’ at the beach all day listening to the Doors and catchin’ some rays.

I’d really love to see ANI bikinis everywhere, all over the world! I want to expand as much as I can while remaining true to the designs I believe in and the style that I love.
I believe in producing everything 100% in the USA. I do all my design work, fabric sourcing, sample-making, and production in Downtown LA. I know a good product is important which is why I make it a point to produce the best quality designs here in my own backyard. I love being able to be a part of every step in the production process, and being able to keep it all close to home here in LA.
So what’s in it for you? Supporting my project will get you anything from a handwritten thank you note, to your very own custom designed bikini, to VIP tickets to a fashion show next year! One of the most convenient rewards being able to presale a bikini from the new collection at a special discounted price! For $75 pledge, you can presale either a top or bottom, and for $150 pledge you can presale a full bikini. Doesn't get much better than that does it?
I want to thank you so much for taking the time to check out my project and for helping me spread peace and love through creativity and design! I’m really excited about this opportunity and your pledges are so helpful and important! Thank you!!
