Focus: Ziah by St. Agni

Fashion designer Erika Toscano founded Ziah in 2015 with a vision to create authentic swimwear that honours the female form. A quest for truth and beauty, Erika was prompted to design a line of swimwear that celebrates the different shapes of the body — rather than laying bare its deepest insecurities.

Erika has been the Head Designer of St. Agni since the beginning of 2018 and this year Ziah partnered with St. Agni. After years of working within the St. Agni team, it felt natural to incorporate Ziah into St. Agni.

“We were selling Ziah in-store and I could see how well the brands worked together. Everything fell into place very naturally.” - Lara Fells (St. Agni Co-Founder) 

Ziah's intention is to disrupt deeply-embedded insecurities surrounding body types and a reluctance from females to strip down to swimwear. The designs celebrate different shapes of the body, acknowledging the way the right cut and an unassuming curve speaks volumes.

Crafted in Australia from the finest textiles, Ziah’s philosophy resists the fast-paced trend cycle and breaks free of categorisation, for a considered approach to life that prioritises the sensuality of how good-quality fabrics can feel against the skin. An exclusive biodegradable bouclé lycra creates pieces paired back with key pieces from St. Agni’s collection - allowing every Ziah piece to be worn outside of the pool or the beach. 

“Ziah is wearable poetry, allowing the barest form of yourself to seep through...” - Erika Toscano (Ziah Founder) 

 Ziah's most recent collection The Wall is a collaboration with St. Agni and has been designed to be paired back perfectly with our Resort '20 collection.
