As the days draw closer to another LS 1426 curves swim week in South Florida, reflections on past shows will remind us what we have coming to kick off summer 2017. LS stands for Linda Scott who is the CEO and Founder of LS 1426 where sizes 14-26 are the primary focus. Linda is the ultimate coach and model mentor and will give you solid and good advice to propel you toward your next moves in the industry. Linda and her team give a dose of realness and remind us of why we are here and where we are going. LS 1426 has been a starting point for numerous models in the industry. Once you’ve been on the team LS 1426, you become family and the connections grow.
What better way to kick off summer than with a fashion show a month before Miami Curves Swim Week. The team will once again begin with a trip to the Bahamas, followed by a model workshop and fitting, and finish up Sunday June 25th with a fashion show. LS 1426 will feature designers from all over the country and world.
