Fashion by She and Mandalynn designer, Amanda Dukehart, thought now was a great time to sit down discuss the brand, the future, bikinis and more...
She: What sets the MLbabe apart?
Amanda: She doesn't follow trends, she makes them!
Amanda:I've always had a love for swimwear and felt that it was an industry lacking in originality. I love getting creative with tiny amounts of fabric and thinking outside of the box. I am also a big fan of the booty! haha
She: What is one piece of clothing you cannot live without besides a bikini?
Amanda: hmm that's a hard one because I have a new favorite item of clothing every week! I have a good pair of boyfriend jeans I would prefer not to live without! A good pair of Jeans is just as hard to come by as a good swimsuit.
She: What are your favorite bikini accessories?
Amanda: I think hats are always a great way to accessorize. I have a jungle themed snapback I love!
He: Since Mandalynn is lingerie inspired, do you see yourself designing actual lingerie in the future? Amanda: I've thought about it for sure. However, it's not something I'm ready to take on anytime soon.
She: What is your all- time favorite piece you’ve designed for your line? Favorite piece in the current collection? Amanda: Probably the Sadie. It was in the past Summer collection and I brought it back for Spring 2015 because it's just that good. It's probably the most flattering suit you could own.. at least in my opinion! It's super 90s in cut and style which is always good as far as I'm concerned too.
She: In your opinion, whats the biggest "fashion faux pas” when it comes to bikini wear?"
Amanda: Ah but there are so many!! haha. I think the worst is when someone wheres heels with their suit. They just are trying way too hard and it doesn't make sense. Unless you are having it double as a top worn under a skirt or something..
She: If you could pick one person, that hasn’t worn one yet, to wear a Mandalynn bikini who would it be?
Amanda: Cara Delevigne would be killer in some MANDALYNN. She is the epitome of an MLBABE.
THE FUN CONTINUES...AFTER THE BREAK...
