** UPDATE, NEW PHOTO ADDED BELOW "SHEER COVER", $50 REWARD LEVEL.

Hello Kickstarter,

I am so excited to bring to you my swimwear line that was inspired by my love for fashion and also by my personal frustration of not being able to find swimwear styles that fit my specific needs and I am sure, the needs of millions of women like me out there. 

After years of looking to find a classy and stylish swimwear that also covered my back, I decided to design one myself.  and so, Kenna Swims was born.

I know that as women, we are at our most vulnerable and self conscious state when we are in a swimsuit.  Common swimwear styles provide little to no coverage over large parts of the body, especially the upper back.  I have struggled with back acne throughout my teenage years that left scars on my back. And at times, it makes me uncomfortable to wear backless clothing even to this day.  And…as far as swimwear goes… I dare you to find pieces that actually cover the back... I know I am not alone in this. If you are one of the millions of women who like me, for one reason or another are looking for more converge in your swimwear, this one is for you and me.

I am modeling my first pieces myself because I wanted you to know that this is a very personal project for me (if you knew how shy I am in real life, you would understand what I big and scary thing this was for me, but I did it!!).  I want you to know that these are the kind of swimwear pieces that I have been searching for, for a long time.

Our designs are ideal for a lot of women for many different reasons.Whether you are looking for some modesty or you are looking for a unique style that stands out from the crowd or, if you are like me, you would like to cover-up scars or skin flare-ups that of course had to happen just before a vacation you planned for a year.. Whatever the reason, I am sure you will find our designs unique and just what you have been looking for.

I made all of the deigns and teamed up with a local seamstress to make these three elegant styles for this kick starter project. I make use of sheer fabrics, which I think brings a sense of mystery, like you are showing skin but not really….

I have been a fan and supporter of Kickstarter for some time now, it is amazing to see how ordinary people like you and me can get together to support aspiring entrepreneurs (like moi) and make our dreams come true.

I am proud to present to you, my fellow kickstarter fans, my first designs.Your contribution will help fund the first production run, and to add more styles along the way. 

With your help, I am confident we will create a lasting brand that provides an alternative to the conventional swimwear and addresses a real need for many women, who like me, for whatever reason might not feel comfortable wearing the commonly available swimwear styles.

Don't forget to check out the amazing rewards I have for you and be one of the first people to rock Kenna Swims style.  Thank you so much for your time!

Note - I will send out sizing and other information request as soon as the project is successfully completed!

Risks and challenges

As a first time swimwear designer (I am an engineer by profession but passionate and dedicated in learning about the fashion industry), my major concern is to make sure that production goes smoothly and all of your packages are shipped in a timely manner, I will fight tooth and nail to make sure that everything is done and shipped to you in time. But, in case it doesn't, I apologize in advance and will do everything within my power to get it to you ASAP.
