Risqu Dukes Swim
Risqu Dukes Swim Apparel brought eye-popping, electric color bikinis center stage with models in bombshell blonde wigs and candy props.
Risqu Dukes Swim Apparel, is owned and operated by military veteran Mercedes Dericho. Mercedes is a Miami, Florida native who launched the selfie-worthy brand Risqu Dukes in 2013 as a therapeutic outlet to relieve symptoms associated with her depression and anxiety. Mercedes revealed to insiders that designing bikinis actually started off as a hobby. In fact the young veteran gave bikinis away for free the first two years of the incorporation of the line. When she realized the magnitude of popularity the line had accumulated, she began building the Risqu Dukes enterprise as it is known today. Mercedes strongly believes that there is a relationship between creative expression and emotional healing. The Miami Swim Week showcase gives customers, media and followers a rare look into the Risqu Dukes behind-the- scenes creative process for the latest collection of selfie-worthy bikinis. Mercedes has announced that she will be streaming via social media the entire day of the showcase.
