Deliver Your News to the World invites YOU to design your own “EXCLUSIVE” bikini collection.


“You as Designer” is a unique offering that enables fashion enthusiasts or just about anyone to design and private label their own bikini collection.

Fortaleza, Brazil – November 26, 2007 -- launches a compelling new service which gives aspiring entrepreneurs and designers the opportunity to design, private label and commercialize their own bikini brand. It’s called “You as Designer.” The opportunity surfaced after Thales Panagides, founder of, received several requests from all over the world asking if it would be possible to tap into their production facilities and know-how.

Mass customization has been around for years but has been mainly the exclusive domain of bigger players and megabrands since upfront costs were prohibitive and quantity purchases deemed inaccessible to smaller companies and individuals. According to Thales, You as Designer levels the playing field. He said, “It’s the first time in the world a Brazilian bikini supplier is offering “customer-designed” bikinis to outsiders plus access to the same production facilities, support, prices and designers once enjoyed exclusively by established brands.”

Nicolas Katsorchis, the principle owner of a high-fashion bikini brand called MAR EGEU and Thales’ business partner said, “we have decades of experience designing bikinis and private labeling for well known retailers. It makes perfect sense to give others access to our production facilities, know-how and design team without requiring exorbitant upfront costs or design experience.” Nicolas pointed out that, “unlike other suppliers who promise lower prices under sketchy conditions, we’re a professionally run business and legal entity that doesn’t employ child labor.”

Lívia Maria, one of MAR EGEU’S top designers, says that, “irrespective of your background or experience, this is an opportunity to exhibit your creativity and profit from launching your own bikini collection. We’ll work together and help realize your dream.” Another attraction is that all completed models become the exclusive rights of their creator whose privacy is respected.

For a mere $150 you’ll gain access to top designers and leverage their experienced production team. The fee includes research and development and anything needed to transform your dream model into a prototype. Prices for the bikinis in production vary and depend largely on the fabrics and accessories selected.

Here’s how it works:
1. Send digital pictures or sketches of bikinis you like. If you own a model and would like to make adaptations then mail the sample and share your ideas.
2. It’s not necessary, but if you like, you can visit MAR EGEU in Brazil. This shouldn’t take more than a couple of days but would be an excuse to meet the team in person and combine business with pleasure.
3. Choose, among other things, fabric pattern, color, cut, design and accessories. Design as many models as you like but remember each prototype entails an upfront fee of $150 applied toward research and development. At this point will also be able to determine the cost components of producing each bikini which would be similar to MAR EGEU’S collection line. Prices vary depending on the materials and accessories used.
4. During the development stage, you will be in close contact through email and phone calls to exchange ideas and provide instant feedback.
5. Preview and approve the prototype model before it goes into actual production.
6. The minimum per model is 120 bikinis in any size. Ex: 30 in XS, 30 small, 30 medium and 30 in large.
7. Your dream collection includes your own tags and labels. For more information about this please visit their private label link HERE.
8. Depending on the ease or complexity of producing each bikini, delivery can take anywhere between 4 to 8 weeks.
