Clearly fueled by extensive travel, the INCA Swimwear Collection combined “every exotic element from the desert, rain forest and seaside” to create a jaw-dropping collection of African and Mediterranean inspired swim suits and cover-ups. No skimping on embellishments here – everything from tops to sashes to sarongs oozed decorative stitching and other organic adornments.(story continues below photo)

The crowd had a tough time keeping their fashion game-face on and cheered wildly for the heavily embellished crimson, neutral and chocolate cover-ups. These tops were daringly paired with bottoms only – equally beautiful, beaded and belted to perfection. Teal and Aquamarine were the among the boldest and brightest hues on the runway with sultry breaks of creme, champagne, rose and demure animal prints electrified with tasteful tassels and intricate, wide bronze and gold trim. The favorites hands-down: the hot pink and chocolate leopard print bikini and the sheer ? python cover-up. INCA’s Stephanie Hirsch and Stacey Deutsch stole the show with their “more is more” take on beading and unique embellishments.
