The Victoria’s Secret angel, mother of two and new swim designer has a refreshingly real approach to female beauty.
Though perhaps best-known as one of Victoria’s Secret’s preternaturally beautiful “angels,” the South African supermodel has asserted herself within a new domain: as an entrepreneur. Tropic of C, her new line of swimwear, recently launched on Moda and (unlike many celebrity-fronted lines) it is entirely Swanepoel’s creation. She leads her team every step of the way, from the initial sources of inspiration to the design process, fabric-sourcing and final production stages—and is well aware of the unique skill set she brings to the table. One of those is a keen business savvy from years of industry experience. “Modeling taught me the importance of being a businesswoman and… [the meaning of] hard work”, she says.

Tropic of C not only puts Swanepoel in the company of other successful female business owners, but it also is a vehicle for her to connect with passions close to her heart. Everything from the packaging to the garment bags and the techno fabric is eco-friendly (the latter is made from old fishing nets) which reflects her aims to protect the environment. Helping women feel good about themselves is another chief objective, something she is better positioned for than many may realize.

She may look “perfect”, but Swanepoel is unfortunately no stranger to body-shaming. Earlier this year, she faced a deluge of negative comments scrutinizing her body after paparazzi snapped photos of her on a beach in Brazil just 12 days after giving birth to her second son in June. She responded via Instagram, defending women against unrealistic pressures while also celebrating the miracle of the female body. “Beauty standards are sometimes impossible for women these days,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m not ashamed to show my postpartum tummy, I am proud actually…I carried my son for 9 months in there, I think I’ve earned the right to have a little tummy”.

Not only can she relate to how women want to feel (confident in their bodies), but Swanepoel is also well-versed in what swimwear will ensure they do. Countless hours in front of the camera modeling just about every style of suit you can imagine has given her an understanding of the sort of silhouettes, fits and materials that are the most comfortable and flattering. Translation: the ones that make women feel their best. “I’ve gathered so much knowledge,” she says. “I wanted to combine that with my love of swimwear to create a line that can be worn by any woman and make her feel sexy and powerful.”

Now every inch the multi-hyphenate power woman, Swanepoel is as driven and inspiring as she is relatable and down-to-earth.
