INTERNATIONAL clothing label 69SLAM recently celebrated the opening of its first Perth stores with a poolside launch event and fashion show in Mindarie.

69SLAM, which launched in 2004 and has stores in more than 45 countries, is known for being youthful and provocative, stocking quality, eco-friendly swimwear, active wear and casual clothing for men, women and kids.

Some unique products include boardies that change colour when they get wet and SPF30+ rashies.

Early last year, directors Mark and Karen Townrow visited Bali where Mrs Townrow found 69SLAM swimwear and “fell in love”.

She believed many Aussies were looking for swimwear that suited their body type without being boring or plain and decided to bring the brand home.

They opened the flagship store at Westfield Whitford City shopping centre late last year, which has since been relocated to Mandurah Forum, as well as an online store at www.69slam.com.au.
