The Start of Magic Bikinis
"As an off shoot to the wedding industry, I found myself making fun and funky hens party costumes, and supplied numerous wedding shops around South Africa. It was through this line of adult fancy dress costumes that a young bikini competitor got my details and inquired about a little outfit that she needed for a fitness routine for a bodybuilding show.
I duly made her a racy little number for the show. She was thrilled with the outcome, which of course delighted me no end! (we all know about the perfectionist side to serious bodybuilding).
By the by she asked me if I made bikinis. I gulped! Oh my stars?!?!?!! Never in my professional career had I ever made a bikini, and especially not one designed to tastefully expose as much flesh as possible without it looking obscene! I laughed, and joked and said that I would give it my best shot!
Gosh - talk about blood, sweat and tears, but eventually... we got it right! That beautiful young athlete won just about every competition that she entered after that. I'd like to believe that my bikinis played some part in her victories and rise to stardom in the fitness industry. I soon became, and I am still to this day- her bikini sponsor!"
