Monokini 2.0 is an art project that re-examines popular culture’s narrow view of a woman’s ideal appearance. The project strives to expand what is accepted and considered beautiful with a swimwear collection designed for women who have gone through breast cancer. 

The creative leaders and creators of Monokini 2.0 artists Katriina Haikala and Vilma Metteri asked a group of Finnish fashion designers to design a swimwear collection for Monokini 2.0. The swimwear collection is modeled by women who have gone through breast cancer. As a result Monokini 2.0 project has 10 beautiful photographs, 10 haute couture bathing suits, 10 empowered women and a world-touring photography exhibition.
