That time twice a year has stuck again. Trendsetters, fashionistas, and hipsters alike gathered to preview next spring/summer’s skate, surf, boarding, and general youth lifestyle brands at KnowShow. This time’s opening night show was anchored by the Endless Summer Fashion Presentation full of amusing beach bikini styles with (some very skinny and tanned) models adorned in retro swimwear from Roxy and Vitamin A Swimwear.

Conversely to Roxy, Vitamin A going with a much more retro style and classic look to their 1960s inspired swimsuits.
