Teen Vogue | Francesca Aiello, 19-year-old Bikini Designer At Swim Week

When we headed down to Miami's Swim Week to see this year's shows, we knew we were going to be in for a treat—34 amazing presentations, lavish parties, and that gorgeous beach always make for a good time. What we didn't expect to find was a teenage entrepreneur.
Meet Francesca Aiello. The 19-year-old Frankie's Bikinis designer was one of the newest (and certainly youngest) faces in Miami this week. Born and raised in Malibu, she launched her company two years ago, and after creating two collections (and blowing up the social media scene), she decided to show at Swim Week this year, making her the youngest designer ever to do so. Pretty cool right?
Obviously, we couldn't wait to pick Francesca's brain on her success. Here's everything she had to say on launching her brand, dominating Instagram, and finding that perfect bikini.
