Knix’s latest swimwear campaign took a creative turn when their plans for a beachside photoshoot were altered by COVID-19.

The Canadian intimates apparel brand had plans to introduce their latest collection of swimwear with a photoshoot in Tulum, Mexico, featuring body positive influencer Sarah Landry (The Birds Papaya) and TV personality and interior designer, Jillian Harris. In addition, the size-inclusive brand had also launched their second North American casting call, and had received more than 11,000 applicants from real Knix customers vying to join Landry and Harris in this year’s empowering campaign.

With plans for a photoshoot of any kind officially off the table, Knix went back to the drawing board. The new plan? Select 25 real women from the 11,000 applicants, equip them with some modelling tips suit from their latest collection and have them take their own photos at home. From backyards and swimming pools, bath tubs and bathrooms, the change resulted in the campaigns most authentic “photoshoot” to date.
