Coral Swimwear – eCommerce

Slay It Wearing Coral's Hottest Swimwear

Our Client

Coral Swimwear is a Melbourne startup that sells beautiful swimwear for women through their online store. Their bikini styles are inspired by the latest trends from beaches in Brazil and Argentina as well as Australian landscapes and wildlife. Coral Swimwear’s flattering designs make women feel fabulous while they are creating great lifelong memories in the sun.

Their Challenge

Being a new startup company, Coral Swimwear did not yet have a website when they came to us for help. Coral Swimwear required a full eCommerce solution to sell their upcoming products. Armed with a logo and a want to create a quirky website for unique bikinis, we helped Coral Swimwear to create a simple yet engaging eCommerce site.
