Swimwear designer, Francesca Aiello, who is only 19-years-old, made her fashion show debut in Miami with Frankie’s Bikinis. What started out as a small bikini line two years ago has now become a successful company for Aiello. She is the youngest designer to be in Miami Fashion Week, and she is using her success to inspire others. “I’ve always said that it’s really important for young girls to know that they shouldn’t let their age stop them,” she tells Fox Business. Her line has suits designed for a variety of body types, and Aiello says that she “wanted to make suits for every girl.” One thing that sets her line apart from other runway designers is that her pieces are very wearable and can be taken straight from runway to beach.

Geometric shapes and blunt lines make this collection unique and edgy. Out of the entire collection there are only a few classic triangle bikinis. The majority of the line was made up of mesh, zippers and jackets, for an all around gym-to beach look that is completely unique to Suboo.
