The summer is sizzling, and in order to combat the heat it's time to head to the beach for some well-needed rest and relaxation. A beach day is a must on these hot summer days, and recently, the team packed its bags, and headed to the luxury escape that is Jamaica Inn for an exclusive swimsuit photoshoot with America's Next Top Model winner Krista White - visiting for the MoDA grooming workshop, featuring swimsuits by New York-based designer KEVA J and styled by celebrity stylist Arnold Milfort.

In 2005, the company was launched by Keva Johnson. Driven by the essential idea of aesthetically pleasing garments, the designs specialise in unique dresses and separates. Keva believes that "it's all in the fit of the garment". Keeping abreast of the need to continue to reach a broader market, Keva opted to relocate operation 'undeniable force' from hometown Miami, Florida, to one of the top recognised fashion capitals in the world - New York. Since its arrival, KEVA J has been recognised through an array of various influential magazines and clientele such as Zink Magazine, Black Beat Magazine, Miami Fashion Weekly, and Noir Couture.

KEVA J recently launched a new swimsuit collection and has plans in the works to extend the company's product offering to accessories and handbags.

The Jamaica Inn was the perfect backdrop for the Flair swimsuit summer issue as the resort offered glitz, glamour and old-school decadence. KEVA J will be on the Rock next week, and for those who are interested in these designs, you can shop the collection at Kerrymanwomanhome boutique.
