INCA Designs Inc, formerly known as Transportation Safety Technology Inc, changed its name to INCA Designs, Inc. in April in anticipation of closing the acquisition of S2 New York Design Corp., the owner of the popular INCA line of bags, swimwear, and resort wear. In conjunction with the acquisition that closed on May 31, 2007, the Company reconstituted its Board of Directors and named new officers.

Stacy Josloff and Stephanie Hirsch serve as the Company's Board of Directors. Josloff serves as the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer and Hirsch serves as President and Secretary.

Stephanie Hirsch, a world traveler with a free spirit and creative mind, launched INCA in 1998 upon her return from hiking the Inca Trail in Peru. Inspired by the memories of her travels, she created INCA, which began as a line of handbags.

After the handbags became an instant hit with Hollywood celebrities, Hirsch explored new horizons and created a line of sexy, fun swimwear and a sophisticated selection of matching cover-ups and resort wear that echoed the vibe of the INCA handbags.

Hirsch then teamed up with Stacy Josloff, who had spent ten years as a high profile sales executive at Ralph Lauren (Black and Purple Label) and Max Mara. Josloff focuses on business strategy, marketing, sales, and merchandising while Hirsch concentrates on design, public relations and production, adding new pieces to merchandise and mix and match to the collection every day.

The INCA line currently includes inca, incagirl, and inca accessories (pillows, towels, tabletop). Plans for expanding the INCA line include a boy's line (inca jr.), home accessories, 'and everything in between', says Hirsch. "We have set our sights on a new destination: full lifestyle brand development and major company expansion," says Hirsch.
