                                                                                                                                                                                                  With a jet-setting collection, Wise pulls influences from across the globe. Bright colors, bold prints, and wild fringe are mixed with muted, delicate embellishments such as cut outs and lace - there is a little bit of everything here. The accessories keep with the "traveling woman" theme, with cameras slung over models' shoulders and suitcases carried down the runway. Adorable parasols and "sandy butts" add a special touch. Hats, turbans, and headbands adorn nearly every models head, while messy fishtails and sexy beachy waves peek from under such adornments. A hippie vibe prevails often as well. Samba dancers in wild beaded outfits and over-the-top feathered head pieces make an appearance and further display the worldly influences that Ms. Wise captured throughout. Ending her show with a "topless" model, covering herself with only a straw hat, Wise has proven her creativity and showmanship at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2012.
