Women Supporting Women!

When you have a chance to host 16 women who are finalists in the DMV area’s Sports Illustrate Swim Search, you say yes!  These women were obviously beautiful, and incredibly kind & supportive of our local business!  Not only did they treat our staff with immense respect, but they went over the top with gratitude in-person, through social media, and even private messages.

Sports Illustrated is breaking down beauty barriers and we are were honored to play a small role in their local story.  SI’s goal is to create a supportive community where women feel heard, seen, empowered and inspired to be themselves and share their stories.  SI Swimsuit editor-in-chief MJ Day said it best: “At its heart, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit franchise is all about empowerment and Swim Search is where that spirit is most vibrant. It’s an incredible opportunity for women who aspire to be part of our brand, and a chance for all of us to celebrate unique beauty and draw awareness to inspiring stories that might otherwise go untold. Each year thousands of women from all walks of life and from around the world, of all ages, races, shapes and sizes, stand shoulder to shoulder—celebrating and inspiring each other.”  #SISwimSearch2021

Thank you for joining our small business ladies, we hope to see you again soon and we wish you all the best of luck!
