Virginia making waves with her swimwear line

Socialite and TV star Virginia Macari's new swimwear line is going from strength to strength in Spain.

The mum-of-one designs bikinis and swimsuits and is currently developing a range of summer clothing.

"It's really taking off here in Spain, it's keeping me busy," she said.

"My manufacturer is in Portugal so it's easy for me to visit them. We have expanded the new line with summer dresses and beachwear."

And Virginia (39) says she has a wonderful team who work with her on developing the brand.

"I have three girls working with me in my studio and I love it.

"We are working on our catalogue at the moment so we are looking for a beautiful new Spanish face for the shoot," she added.

Virginia (above) recently modelled a swimsuit from her collection at a ladies-only high tea in aid of Positive Pink for breast cancer awareness.

The glamorous brunette personally modelled a one-off pink swimsuit that was especially designed for the occasion.

Afterwards, she offered the fuchsia swimsuit up for auction to the highest bidder with all the proceeds going to breast cancer research.

She also revealed that she feels more confident as she gets older.

"I know I'm not perfect, I know I don't have the perfect body. I think a woman gets more confident as she gets older.

"Wearing nice lingerie makes me feel very glamorous. I always splurge on it," she revealed.

Virginia moved to Marbella earlier this year with her fiancee Kaste Dahl and their two-year-old son Thor.
