The Ellie Suit

I don’t know about you, but the first thing that comes to mind when I think of swimsuits is bone chilling rain and December.

Jokes, that’s not true at all.

But despite the unfitting weather, my fashion design class was hard at work on swim suits last month.

Before the Christmas break, we finished off our third semester of fashion design with a swim wear project. Each of us was responsible for designing and constructing a suit, cover-up, and swim wear catalog.

This was one of my favourite projects so far, and I’m really happy with how my suit turned out.


The Ellie suit is bubbly, frilly, and fun. Designed for a junior contemporary market, the Ellie suit encompasses all the fun of being a girl, while incorporating neon colours, a flirty silhouette, and just a little bit of sparkle.

Now all I need is some warm weather, a beach house, a pina colada, and a cute life guard to create the perfect scenario to wear my suit.

What’s that you say? I live in Vancouver?

Can’t a girl at least dream?

Hope some sunshine comes your way,
