Join us for our K Belo mid summer party to celebrate our new collection, our collaboration with Flying Solo, and that summer is fully here!  Wednesday 7/26, 6-8pm Flying Solo 434 West Broadway NY, NY K Belo swimwear is designed to last many summers, because we know how sad it is to say goodbye to a cherished, well loved swimsuit. If you know that feeling and are looking for swimwear you can love forever, come have a drink with us and shop our beautiful new collection and our classic styles.  The Summer 2017 collection is inspired by the wild beauty of the shoreline, where the ocean meets the sand, and that feeling of lightness it creates in us to stand in such vastness on the edge of a continent meeting the edge of the sea. All K Belo swimwear is made locally in New York of eco and sustainable recycled Italian fabric, SPF 50, so that we can do our part to lessen the environmental impact of the fashion industry. A percentage of all sales from the event will be donated to the Surfrider foundation. www.kbeloswim.com www.flyingsolo.nyc www.surfrider.org

I am so happy to announce that my entire new K Belo Summer Collection is now available for a limited time at Flying Solo for June and July!

New Summer Swimwear & New Textiles!

It's been a long while in the making, from the start of K Belo in 2007 to where I am now ten years (!) later. As a self taught designer, every season has been an evolution and a huge opportunity to learn something new, about fashion design and myself. Along the way, I began drawing again. I started by going to a live model drawing session in Williamsburg, Brooklyn New York which I found out about while eavesdropping at a bar. (It's amazing how much you can learn that way!)

Three years later the people I draw with have become very good friends and I have figured out the steps to transform my artwork into textiles. This has opened up a whole world of possibilities for K Belo. I've always tried to find the most interesting and dynamic prints, which has been a hunt every season, and then have those designs printed onto the beautiful SPF 50 recycled fabric I source from Italy (made from re-woven recycled fishing nets and other Nylon materials). Now, I can't stop drawing textiles! It's so much fun and so exciting for me to be able to express my ideas through my own prints.

For the Summer 2017 season, I am happy to introduce for the first time my "Goodnight" print, made from a drawing I did at a live model session in 2015, and my "Rose Leaves" print, which I drew for a solo art show in which I drew a lot of abstract flowers. Nudes and flowers! (Please see the Art & Textiles page for more info.)

Thank you for letting me share this with you and continuing to believe in K Belo. I think about you wearing these suits to the beach and feeling so happy and that makes me so happy!

Happy Summer!
