From the groundbreaking #CurvesInBikinis campaign to Graham’s first capsule collection with the brand – which sold out in minutes – Graham and Swimsuits For All has proven time and time again that they are an unbeatable combination. This new collection continues that streak, with an expertly designed assortment of swimwear and cover-ups that flatter a woman’s natural shape without sacrificing style.

Available now at www.SwimsuitsForAll.com, ‘Ashley Graham x Swimsuits For All’ will launch with a sun-drenched video and photo series that encourages women of all shapes, ages, and backgrounds to come together and celebrate their unique womanhood. Shot in the vibrant streets and hidden beaches of Puerto Rico, the campaign features Graham in styles from the collection, which was inspired by the festive spirit of the island. Ashley shares the magic of old San Juan with real women and free-spirited locals as they celebrate “every body, every age, every beautiful” all wearing styles from the new collection.

I was so excited to shoot with local women for this shoot, non-models who represent all different body shapes, proving that everyone can look gorgeous in my swimsuits,” said Graham. “We’re continuing to shift perceptions of beauty and encouraging more inclusivity in the fashion industry. I’m proud that my collection is the first to offer sizes 6 through 22, and I cannot wait to see even more ladies rock these sexy suits!”

The 2017 ‘Ashley Graham x Swimsuits For All’ swimwear collection will be available at www.SwimsuitsForAll.com and select retail partners beginning featuring a 16-piece line of bikinis, one-pieces, and cover-ups and priced between $70 – $150, with sizes ranging from 6 – 22.

Started in 2004, and then called “Style Lounge,” this modest fashion platform launched out of the gate as a stage for some of today’s leading fashion brand designers like Rodarte, Rebecca Minkoff, Patricia Fields, and Zaldy. Over the decade, and after a name change as well, STYLE360 New York Fashion Week has evolved into a launching pad for trending and celebrity designers such as Avril Lavigne, Daisy Fuentes, the Kardashians, and Kristin Cavallari to name a few.

The stunningly beautiful Cadenza improves upon all the elements that made its predecessor an award-winning success, boasting a precisely crafted cabin, cutting edge technology for connectivity and driver assistance, a stronger body structure, and powertrain enhancements for a more premium experience behind the wheel.

Events kick-off with entertainment and lifestyle retailer HSN’s third successive show presenting their Serena Williams Signature Statement Collection with Ms. Williams taking the stage two days after New York’s U.S. Open Women’s Championship. The week wraps up with Kia STYLE360‘s third annual fashion event with celebrity, actress and fashion designer Kristin Cavallari, who will present her new Emerald Duv Jewelry Collection, new shoe releases from her Chinese Laundry Collection as well as signed copies of her book “Balancing on Heels”.
