Unless you’re a fan of reality television, Georgia Kousoulou might not be a name you are familiar with.
The blonde, who currently appears in The Only Way is Essex, is keen to prove she’s more than just someone who spouts rehearsed “reality” lines while having coffee with her tiny dogs, with her debut swimwear range.
And Kousoulou certainly looks the part.
Kousolou, 24, posed beachside for her new collection, entitled Summer Dreams By Georgia K.
And she says designing a range of clothes (well bikinis…) was something that she’d always wanted to do.
“I am so excited to be launching my very first swimwear collection – I love the summer and love looking good by the pool and beach so this really is a dream come true for me,” said Kousolou.
“I’ve been able to express my vision and my inner Greek goddess within the pieces. I just can’t wait to see gorgeous girls rocking Summer Dreams By Georgia K on holiday this summer.”
No word as of yet how she would feel about not so gorgeous looking girls sporting the pieces…
The reality star, who is dating TOWIE co-star Tommy Mallett (no, not Timmy), is hopeful that her flattering range will suit women of all shapes and sizes, saying: “As a curvy girl myself, I’m always telling girls to embrace their bodies,” she told The Sun.
“Tommy loves my body, and wouldn’t like it if I was too skinny. He tells me he likes that I have a woman’s body and loves my bum and my legs.
“He supports a natural figure which is lovely.”
It looks as if Kousolou is embracing the plus-size revolution, which has Ashley Graham as its figurehead. It’s a debate that has recently emerged in the fashion industry, which has been criticised for dubbing Size 12 as “plus-size”.
