DENVER – A swimsuit created by a local student designer is featured in the 2016 Denver Broncos Cheerleaders Swimsuit Calendar.

Fashion students at The Art Institute of Colorado participated in a competition where they were asked to design a swimsuit for the calendar. Nicole Marsh's two-piece orange and blue swimsuit won the coveted spot in the calendar, which debuted at the Calendar Release Party on August 18.

Students submitted their drawings and swatches, and from these, three students were chosen to construct their designs. These three swimsuits were taken to the calendar photo shoot in Mexico, and a winner was chosen.

Denver Broncos cheerleader Gioia Bartalo modeled Marsh's swimsuit.
