Hi, I'm Bianca and Honeycomb Swimwear is my baby.
You can call me Bee, in fact that's how I came up with the name Honeycomb Swimwear - cos it's made by Bee!
In 2017 I quit my stressful corporate career to pursue a more creative life, turns out this was just as stressful as my job - but a good kind of stress!
I studied fashion design and fell in love with textile art. Creating beautiful wearable art is a wonderful thing and fills me with so much joy. I soon realised that swimwear was the perfect canvas for me to express my creativity - swimwear can be so bright and fun and truly goes hand in hand with textile art.
A lot of people can feel a bit self conscious in swimwear, so I love being able to create beautiful swimsuits that make the wearer feel great and forget any insecurities, and just be able to enjoy the moment.
I design my pieces from my Brisbane home and am always looking for ways to support other small businesses, and I am particularly passionate about supporting women in business. My logo was designed by Brisbane designer Hanne Creative and my photography is by Adelaide photographer Vanessa Burton. I plan to grow Honeycomb Swimwear to a point where I can support even more lovely women's businesses.
It's important to know that when you shop at Honeycomb Swimwear you are supporting me - an independent Brisbane designer who sucked up all her fear, quit her crappy job and finally built up the courage to back herself and pursue a life of creativity.
And for that I am eternally grateful for every last one of you!
Love forever and ever, Bee 🐝
