Festive time is almost here and this means holidays and summer parties for some. If you are going to be spending some time by the beach or pool (likely somewhere outside our waterless country), maybe you should get yourself a bikini or two from some of Botswana’s talented designers.

This year, we have seen a few swimwear and cover-ups on our runways. There were pieces catering for different fashion tastes and preferences to choose from. Some of the designs are a bit risqué and others are practically futuristic- but none were your typical :

The recently launched swimwear line by former model Ayanda Modisane is inspired by Africa and its diverse culture- hence the tag line “Splash into Africa”. These pieces are flying off the shelves as they are one piece per design of the runway so get your favourite ASAP. https://www.facebook.com/Print-Swim-782888735141253/

Aobakwe Molosiwa just gets the feminine classy woman he designs for, and he certainly captivated that consistent essence with a few swimwear lines he showcased this year.

Earlier in the year, DihDah presented a neon and print line that included swimwear and cover ups. If you are colour-craze and fashionably bold, this is just for you:
