How the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Can Make or Break a Bikini Designer's Career

Feb/11/2015 at 10:40 AM ET

Nabbing a coveted spot in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue can help launch a model’s career to super-stardom (just look at Kate Upton, Chrissy Teigen or Brooklyn Decker!), but getting your bikini in the issue can equally give a major boost to a swimsuit designer’s career. Just ask designer Nicole Hanriot, whose Beach Riot designs have been featured in the issue three years in a row, including five suits in this year’s issue and eight other suits that SI has posted online, gracing the bodies of models such as Lily Aldridge, Hailey Clauson, Irina Shayk, Hannah Ferguson and Ashley Smith.

We actually did ask her, and here’s what she had to say about the experience.
