Team Kushcush

On February 20, 2010, in Behind-the-Scenes, Shop!, The label: Kushcush Swimwear, by Kerry Cushman

It’s been quite the whirlwind here at team Kushcush since the SI Swimsuit issue came out  last week showing Lindsey Vonn in my Diana bikini!

We’ve seen the photo of Lindsey wearing Kushcush everywhere from LA’s NBC News, Access Hollywood and even Oprah. I mean, OPRAH! We’ve also felt the love from Lindsey & my hometown state, Minnesota. We’ve been featured on the Fox9 news as well as the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Being in SI is a huge deal for a swimsuit designer, but even more, I cant tell you how thrilled I was to learn that it was Olympic skier (and now gold medalist!) Lindsey Vonn wearing my suit. Lindsey and I are both from Minnesota and I come from a long line of skiers.

As a bikini designer, Im kind of like the black sheep amongst my ski-obsessed family (well, more like a California tan sheep). But nonetheless, I love my snow-covered roots and think it’s fantastic to bring these two worlds together. In fact, we currently sponsor Maine’s Team Skiers Edge, my nephews J4 ski team (go Nick & Dev!).

So, to celebrate everything snow, skis and bikinis, we are offering 10% off at Kushcush.com for every individual medal Lindsey Vonn wins at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics! To receive the discount code, simply become a Kushcush by Kerry Cushman Facebook Fan or sign up on Kushcush.com by the closing ceremony on Sunday 2/28/10. The discount code will be emailed out to Kushcush members and Facebook fans on Thursday 3/4/10.

Go Lindsey go! We’ll be cheering her on the in the super-G today!

Shop! Barneys Warehouse Sale

On February 5, 2010, in Shop!, by Kerry Cushman

The Barneys Warehouse Sale has hit LA & NYC! If you’re looking for the bargain bin, this is not your sale (the gorgeous garden-green stacked Lanvin heels that I had a moment with were still $450), but fashion-hungry shoppers can still find considerable discounts on denim, men’s suits and major labels like Prada and Christopher Kane at 50% off.

***

Keep in mind this is a warehouse sale. Before you spend a few hundred on last season’s next-best-thing, double check the quality…{I saw a Bottega Veneta pleated chiffon number with twist chignon collar was tragically torn to shreds in what I can only imagine was a fashion frenzy or returned after a long night at a Grammy after-party}.

***

The sale continues thru Feb15 at the LA Convention Center and thru Feb 28 in NYC. Happy Shopping!
