She’s worked hard to establish herself as a swimwear designer, and has just launched her second range. And Kimberley Garner has quickly realised that with her figure, she is the perfect model to show off the designs to perfection.
So when it came to packing for the Coachella festival, former Made In Chelsea star Kimberley looked no further than her workroom. The 24-year-old was seen showing off her svelte figure in a white £120 Los Angeles monokini from her collection as she soaked up the sunshine at a VIP pool party at the music and arts event.
Spending time with her friend, Kimberley was first seen wearing a pair of tiny denim shorts over the one-piece, before swapping the denims for a floaty sarong. She completed her festival chic look by wearing a straw hat, sunglasses and tan cowboy boots. But the boots came off when Kimberley splashed around in a paddling pool with her friend, both with drinks in their hands.
Kimberley told media recently that she started designing her second Kimberley London range close to a year ago, shortly after her debut collection – described at the time as ‘A British take on the Brazilian’ – won praise for their quality. She said: ‘I’ve wanted to design swimwear since I was 12 and it’s always been a dream of mine. I brought out a collection last year and I was amazed by the reception, so about 8 months ago I started designing the new collection.
‘I wanted it be more intricately designed, more detailed.’ Kimberley will follow up the Spring range with a Summer collection, which admits will be a more playful affair than the embellished creations – designed to embrace elegance, freedom and fun’ – she models here.
She said: ‘I’ve got a summer collection coming out that’s a bit more cheeky, but this one’s elegant. I wanted to focus on flattering the woman’s body, a bit like the little black dress where you put it on and you feel like a million dollars.’
