About this project
What is Kickstarter:
Kickstarter is a new online platform to help fund creative projects.
Influenced by the designer's Cuban descent and Caribbean upbringing, Syiim captures the sense of luxurious paradise, and is designed to appeal to the fun, confident beach and resort lover. Syiim blends exotic allure with cosmopolitan culture that is apparent in the contemporary shapes, bold prints and the fusion of sophistication and seductiveness.
Syiim is inspired by exotic tropical cultures, electric rhythms of the Caribbean and the festive beach and nightlife of the islands. Syiim caters to the dynamic woman who isn't afraid of her sexuality and enjoys celebrating her femininity.Devoted to providing high quality swim and beach wear, Syiim is determined to make its mark in the swimwear industry and become a strong competitor amongst the favored swimwear brands.
Syiim is dedicated to being an environmentally aware designer line, that avoids using paper where necessary, and dedicates part of each collection to the 'Eco-Syiim' group, which uses environmentally friendly fabrics to make selected styles.
Why we need your help:
It has been a goal of mine to own my company, specifically swimwear. I am a designer working in the off-peak hours to help fulfill my dream. I created the line called Syiim last year and have been granted to the opportunity to debut my first collection at this year's Caribbean Fashion week in Jamaica in summer. Your support will not only help Syiim pay for the fees of the CFW but will also help to kick-start the the first phase of our launch . The first phase of any fashion business requires details such as gathering the right materials and strategies, hiring the right showroom for sales, brand and marketing campaigns through PR companies, exhibiting at the Swim expos, and participating on the runway. On this journey in developing this collection, I am humbly asking for your kind support. Your support will help kick start Syiim to the next level and get us into stores.
