Her swimsuits’ prints seem to be inspired by art deco and Chinese artistic influence of the eighteenth century.

Cachay, being a young fashion designer, managed to combine youth and history to create modern swimwear. Her collection looks really really cool.

Cachay said,

I’m a little fish who wants to be a big one”

I’m all about prints and colors”

Her suits aren’t fussed up with grommets, chains, charms and other details, she said. “They are really about fit.”

Top models wore plenty of jewelry, however, in the three-part show, which featured a segment of “WASPy, glamorous divas” followed by a group of “sexed-up hippie girls from the ’70s” and culminating in Syla suits and garb meant to evoke the image of an ’80s “punk rock chick” with a hint of the ’60s as well, Sylvie Cachay said.

A self-professed dyed-in-the-Lycra type, Cachay added black to her first runway collection. She said,

Plum was my black before this season”
