Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
Congratulations to Rachel Kasang from Arizona, winner of the 2012 1 Sol Swim Model Contest.
The second annual 1 Sol Swim Model Search Contest was a huge success and received more top model entries than ever. The talent pool was more competitive and models from around the world vied for a chance to become the contest winner. Increased interest for the model contest resulted in high internet traffic to the 1 Sol Swimwear website and Facebook page, as contestants took the completion to new heights with their online communities. This year, the contest went viral and fans were able to leave comments on each of the model’s Facebook contest pages, making social media the means of fan trending. In the end, Rachel’s beautiful appeal, personality, and portfolio swayed the 1 Sol Team to select her as the winner!
Ms. Kasang was selected as a top 20 finalist out of 2,800 plus applicants. The top four finalists were chosen by online fan votes. After much debate, the 1 Sol Team selected Rachel as 1 Sol Swimwear’s 2012 model. Rachel was invited to fly out to Los Angeles at the end of June for a two day photo shoot. Her photo shoot also included a one-on-one interview that allowed her to share her thoughts as the winner of the 2012 1 Sol Swim Model Search Contest.
During the interview Rachel expressed her excitement, “I couldn’t believe that I had actually been chosen! I was overwhelmed with happiness and I couldn’t thank everyone enough for voting for me.” The photo shoot went great, and she attributes her ability to photograph well to her healthy lifestyle. “Everyone I worked with in LA was very professional, kind, and the designer was very creative with her styles and designs,” she boasts about her experience with the 1 Sol Swimwear team.
1 Sol would like to personally thank all the top 20 finalists for their hard work, and their commitment to the 1 Sol Swim Model Contest. Additionally, the top 20 finalists were each given a complimentary gift certificate to the 1 Sol Store as a token of appreciation for their efforts.
1 sol swimwear designer Jenny Pyle brings refreshing sophistication to the swimwear forum. Their pinup-worthy one-pieces, expertly fitted tops and bottoms are nothing less than swim couture. There is a great deal of craftsmanship involved in the making of 1 Sol Swim wear. The line is in league with swimwear greats like Norma Kamali, Karla Colletto and Diane Von Furstenburg. In spite of triple lining, intuitive silhouettes and masterful embellishments, 1 Sol offers quality swim wear at a contemporary price.
The Pyle designed 1 Sol collection includes vibrant prints, saturated colors and elaborate draping. The designs are both flattering and architectural collection pieces. Additionally, the plunging necklines, asymmetrical shoulders, peek-a-boo cutouts and couture-minded embellishments showcase the intricate designs and work that goes into making 1 Sol Swimwear.
