Nothing is more fitting for a swimsuit shoot in Thailand than a Muay Thai gym and we found the perfect one to shoot in, on a cooler, slightly overcast day in Koh Samui. The perfect model for the job was none other than our fiery Brazilian, Mariana Fernandez. Mariana is no stranger to the pages of World Swimsuit, having been our Rookie selection several years ago.
We're really broken out of the mould for #WorldSwimsuit2018. Jacques has captured our models and our swimsuits in a completely unique and authentically Thai way and we can't wait to show you what we've created in Thailand.
Later in the day we headed out with Tamaryn again, for some sightseeing around the island. We stopped in at a local fish market and then out to the Big Buddha before the rain came bucketing down and we had to head back to our shelter at The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui.
