About

Thanks so much for checking out the video and incentives above from Miss Kinsman's American-made, Brazilian-cut swimwear. I can hardly wait to share my passion for design with the rest of the world, including the high drama and sophistication found within every handcrafted piece.

Despite Miss Kinsman’s early successes in stores and at exclusive Hollywood fashion shows, it takes more than just hard work to unleash a brand to the world. The line was recently placed in Santa Monica’s prestigious Fred Segal shop, and has gained momentum through various forms of publicity and social media. Our goal to raise $20,000 to design, promote, and produce the very first run of the 2014 Collection as we build a globally-recognized brand, which screams sensuality with a glow of confidence. At the same time, 5% of the funds raised will be donated to local Surfrider Foundation chapters in Southern California to protect our ocean and beaches (making for more places to wear Miss Kinsman bikinis for years to come).  Bikinis are inherently so tiny, especially when it’s one by Miss Kinsman, yet so many details are required by each individual piece. Every contribution, small or large will add one more stitch, one more lace covered string tie, and another sexy curve to bring the collection to fruition. And from bikini calendars to a Hollywood trip to party poolside with the Miss Kinsman models, there are plenty of fun and exciting rewards for your support.

Please help bring Miss Kinsman’s 2014 Collection to life, while helping the Surfrider Foundation and earning an exclusive gift this holiday season for your contribution. Against all odds, I’ve put everything on the line to fund Miss Miss Kinsman, yet despite all of the energy, passion, and my own self funding, I could not create this collection without your support. Not only will you be investing in authentic designs from one of LA’s hottest emerging brands, but you’ll inevitably be part of an unforgettable bikini movement and forever a VIP of Miss Kinsman. From the bottom of my heart, and in the name of small bikinis and big dreams, thank you sincerely for your generosity and support.

Beautifully,
Joanna Kinsman
