Sam Faiers: Designing swimwear is a dream come true
Sam Faiers has designed her second swimwear range 'Samantha Faiers' for Very.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has a "massive obsession" with bikinis and admitted she packs 14 pieces of swimwear when she goes on holiday for a week.
Speaking about her new collection, which is available on Very.co.uk she told The Daily Star newspaper: "If I'm going away for a week, I take 14 with me. Sometimes I plan what I'm going to wear then, on the day, I just don't feel like it. I like to take options."
Asked how she felt about designing the items, she said: "Well, swimwear is my thing. I have a massive obsession with it so, when I had an opportunity to design a collection, it was a dream come true. I based my collection on a lot of the bikinis that I already own and feel comfortable in.
"Some of the pieces I have are really expensive, so I wanted to create a collection that was affordable but still of great quality."
The fashion designer - who has a boutique pop-up store 'Minnies' with her sister Billie Faiers - revealed her favourite piece from the range.
She added: "The black and pink triangle bikinis are my favourite, they are so flattering. It's such a great style that I think it will suit everyone."
