Sun safe swimwear gets sexy as Gold Coast SunSafe swimwear design awards get ready to recognise the best

11 Jul 2016

The Pindara Private Hospital SunSafe design category is an initiative to encourage swimwear designers to design not only beautiful swimwear, but also look at protecting the wearer from the Australian harsh sun. 

Pindara Private Hospital CEO, Trish Hogan said it was so important that the community not just on the Gold Coast, but everyone of all ages through out Australia, be aware of the extreme necessity to protect themselves from the harsh Australian sun.  “I felt very excited to be able to play a part in the prevention of skin cancer in the future, she said”.  “By Pindara Private Hospital supporting emerging swimwear designers through sponsorship of the Pindara Private Hospital SunSafe Award I feel we can play an important role in prevention. If we can support the designers of tomorrow by encouraging them to design not only beautiful swimwear, but protective swimwear it will save lives.”

THE Gold Coast fashion industry is poised for some high-end exposure this week as some of the country's biggest fashion agents gather for a closed trade event to be held in Surfers Paradise.

The move comes as the local fashion industry recognises the growing importance of resort fashion among the Chinese who are emerging as one of the fastest growing tourism markets in the world.

The Emerging Designer Trade Fair, an initiative from the organisers of the Gold Coast Swim Fashion Festival, will host eight top line agents, including power agent Phoebe Garland of Garland and Garland and Kim Van Weelde of VW Fashion at Soul this weekend.

The agents will meet one-on-one with 11 Queensland designers in a bid to source innovative new designs to meet what the industry sees as a lucrative growth sector.

"It will be a very intense day for both agents and for designers," says organiser Leanne St George.
