Hi fellow beach lovers! Thank you for your interest in our Perini Bikinis! And thank you for taking the time to get to know us better.
WHO WE ARE
I live at the beach. I wake up in the morning and throw on whatever two pieces are on the top of my bikini drawer. Sometimes I match. Sometimes I don't. Either way I'm going to have blast at the beach. My sister is quite the opposite, she will waste valuable tanning time searching for two pieces that "go". Sick of waiting around and getting paler, I came up with Perini Bikinis!
WHY DOES THE WORLD NEED PERINI BIKINI?
Perini Bikini is mix and matchable and most pieces are reversible! So, you buy a few Perini Bikini pieces, throw them in your drawer and when its time to go to the beach, you reach your hand into your bikini drawer and pull out a Perini Bikini top and a bottom and throw them on and go! Packing to go away, but need all the room for shoes? No problem! ONE Perini Bikini equals FOUR different looks! I mean...WOW!
WHO WEARS A PERINI BIKINI?
A girl who wants to have FUN! She wants to wake up and throw on her bikini. She commands attention on the beach. She stands out. She NEVER takes herself too seriously. She is fab. She isn't afraid to go in the ocean. She is totally amazing. Don't you wanna be that girl? ;)
A LITTLE HISTORY
Perini Swimwear is not a new company. It began on a smaller scale a few years ago, but lacked the funds for large production. I really believed in my vision and sewed all the samples and production by hand in my kitchen. With limited resources, I was able to score an exclusive with a top store in LA and a feature in Allure magazine as a *Must Have*! I am currently a lingerie designer for a large, well-known company. I have contacts at one of the best PR firms in fashion and sales people with contacts at every major retailer in the U.S. who have an existing interest in the line. I plan on using my connections to the fullest to help make "our" project a great success! All of the ingredients are there... That is why now, I humbly ask for your help on this final push. Be a part of something big with me!!!
We still have big dreams and even bigger ideas. I hope that with your help, we can OFFICIALLY launch this bikini line! When we reach our goal, we will have the funds for our first official collection. This includes samples AND production of 5 different bikinis from the ridiculously adorable to beach bunny sexy! Each bikini will be made in 2 different colors, since not everyone may love pink as much as we do! The last step of my project will be completing a look-book which will be used for sales and press. I plan on selling the bikinis on my website, to boutiques and at various events in Montauk this Summer.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Could I do it cheaper? YES. But it is very important to me to keep this brand LOCAL. They will be manufactured right here on Long Island!
I would like to expand on the styles I already have in the line. I put together a mood board and design sheet to help you see the direction I see Perini Bikinis going this Summer. Enjoy!

Risks and challenges
My day job is as a designer for a large lingerie company. I know how to handle production and sales issues and if I don't, I know someone who does! I am very well connected in the fashion industry and believe wholeheartedly in this. It's going to take more than a just bump in the road to get me off track!
The main challenge we will face once we are successfully funded will be timing. We will be on a tight schedule to get everything done in time for spring/summer of 2013. The factory we are working with to make our samples will also be making the patterns and grading them, so when we say "go!" for production, it will just be 4-6 weeks until we are in stores. Our factory is right here on Long Island so we will be able to keep a close eye on everything to ensure a timely delivery, but also to ensure that the goods will be as beautiful as we imagined them! We are driven and have bikinis people want! We will be a success!
