LAKSHMI BEE RESORT
INSPIRED BY CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL & THE AUSTRALIAN GREAT BARRIER REEF
BY LAKSHMI & SUSAN GOWDA
SS 2009 - 2019
We are excited to share that we have officially launched our brand new 2019 Lakshmi Bee Resort wear collection! 🎉🐠A collection we hand made together about 10 years ago and have added our finishing touches!
This collection is very special, it was our first collection that we ever made together as a mother and daughter duo back in 2009.
It was a challenging time for both of us and meant so much to be able to showcase it again together today.
The dresses and beach overthrows were pieced together using fabric remnants, scraps and unused T-Shirts ♻️
The sea creatures designs have been hand designed, painted and embroidered using Indian beads from our families home town in Bangalore 🦑🎨
These pieces made their first debut at the 🎥 National Retail Awards in 2009.
The first 3 bikinis featured with feather turban hats were handmade and designed from scratch and our collection was featured as a swimwear finalist 👙at the Flair Awards in 2009.
We have re-styled the pieces to form our complete collection today ✂️which debuted at the Sassy and Co Magazine launch & fashion runway over the weekend, 2019.
Our collection was inspired by Caribbean Carnival and the unique sea life of our beautiful Australian Great Barrier Reef, which has been sadly affected by Global Warming and sea pollution 🐠🚯 One of the many reasons why it’s so important to be sustainably conscious in our globe today.
Our mission is to combat the issue of fast fashion, which is now the number two cause of global pollution worldwide.
It's important to remember that our everyday actions are changing the face of our planet and the lives around us.
Your life is important and every single one of us matters.
🙏🏽 Great change really does begin with yourself.
