Entrepreneur Cherry Harker, 76, launches iconic sports swimwear brand

ZwimZuit – the fitness bikini that stays in place

At 76, Cherry Harker isn’t your usual entrepreneur. She has clothed Kylie Minogue and Lily Allen, beaten cancer twice, and is now shunning retirement to fulfil her lifetime goal by launching the sports performance swimwear brand ZwimZuit.

With an acute eye for fashion, Cherry, together with her daughter Tamarisk, a costume designer based in London, has created a range of fitness bikinis that suit active women with natural curves. The specialist neoprene material enables women to be as relaxed or active as they want to be, and not have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction.

The daughter of Rolls-Royce’s first test pilot, Ronnie Harker, Cherry used to holiday in the late 50s and early 60s in the South of France – Monte Carlo, Nice, Cannes and St. Tropez, alongside icons Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, and the notorious Christine Keeler, as well as writer Simone de Beauvoir, and artist Jean Cocteau.

Andrew is an entrepreneur who has started his first business at the age of 18 and has since run mobile bars and beer flow services at The Oval cricket ground and O2 arena in London. He is also passionate about putting on a good party and so for his own wedding decided to build his own rustic bar from reclaimed floorboards and galvanised steel, complete with draught beer/cider dispense system. Using trusted staff to manage it on his big day, the bar was a great success. As a result, many of his guests requested to hire it for their own parties; and so Drinks By Dexter was born.
