Billabong Sustainable Swimwear

Billabong 2013 - Otis Scholarship Benefit and Fashion ShowBillabong is a world leader in surf apparel and accessory design, from early innovations, such as developing the first leg rope, the tucked-under edge surf board design, and hand-made board shorts with superior functionality, to a full spectrum of offerings for board sports – Surf, Skate, Snow, and Wake – driven by a commitment to designing quality for pro board sports and team riders.

For the 2012-13 season, Billabong mentored Otis College of Art and Design students to develop a swimwear collection exploring sustainability with the use of recycled fabrics. Here is a gallery of pics from the Otis Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show, held in Beverly Hills on May 5, 2013, showcasing the student designs created during the Billabong mentorship.
