Q&A with swimwear designer, and new mum, Alicia Zannier.

Q&A with swimwear designer, and new mum, Alicia Zannier.

We loved having Alicia Zannier for our most receent M. Magazine Q&A.

A new mum to a beautiful baby girl, Milla, and also a swimwear designer of ALICIA SWIM, she talks to us at M. Magazine about her pregnancy, her favourite postpartum products, why she enjoys wearing our MUMMA MILLA leakproof intimates, and how the simple, minimalist things create a clear and calm mind for her.
Alicia grew up in Mauritius, where her family, sisterhood and freedoms are to her core, all underpinned by Alicia’s respect for nature. Her swimwear designs are produced in Mauritius, supporting local creativity and craftsmanship.
Combined with Alicia’s eye for detail saw her absorb intricate details on cuts and designs during her 15-year career as an international fashion model, giving ALICIA SWIM a leading edge.
