I loved how this campaign was all about embracing our individuality and inner beauty/insecurities. When we take a moment in the day to stop,feel,take in , breathe in these little moments, and feel the gratitude in your heart & stomach, the warmth of the moment, it can help so much with manifesting positivity. ?
She said, ‘… There are eight international schools and 65 different nationalities of expat kids in each who all know one another. Our little community of Bali kids is really into fashion’. She studied and graduated from Canggu Community School in Bali.
Inka’s career began early on in her life, at the young age of six months when she modelled for Starz Modeling Agency doing photoshoots. She was hired by Bali Stars Agency and given the opportunity to model for local and international brands while still in school, for such as Pepper Mayo, Sabo Skirt, Heartland & Baulch and BB Dakota.
After her high school matriculation, she made a permanent move to London, UK to further her modelling career, and has since modelled for a number of brands such as BeBe, Red Earth, O’Neil, H&M, and Swarovski. She’s also appeared on the covers of popular magazines, including Vogue and Elle Magazine Australia, and even modelled for designer Carolina Herrera and Samantha Willis. She is also a member of the Supré Girl Gang.
The model has endorsed many famous brands such as Miu Miu, Chanel, Moncler and Love Magazine.
In an interview with InStyle Magazine in 2018, she revealed her excitement to be a Bonds girl. She said, ‘…It’s an honour for me to stand next to amazing talents such as Miranda Kerr and my great friend Sarah Ellen. I feel so lucky that they chose to work with me, as the New Era collection was inspired by the ‘90s and it fits in pretty well with my personal style…’. Currently the model is represented by IMG Models, a company involved with top models such as Gigi Hadid.
She has a huge following with more than 1.3 million fans on Instagram, but despite her success and subsequent fame, the model still remains grateful, modest and humble.
Personal Swimwear Brand
At the young age of 14, the supermodel teamed up with two of her close friends – Reo and Franny to create their own swimwear label entitled “Akoia”. She explained, ‘Actually, my best friends Reo, Franny, and I started our own crochet swimwear label called Akoia when we were just 14 or so. Reo’s mother, who is in retail, now oversees it, but we are all still very much involved in the design process’.
Ex-boyfriend: Zak Henry
Inka began dating Zak Henry in 2014 and their relationship lasted for more than three years. Inka frequently posted pictures of the couple on her Instagram account and did not shy away from professing her love for him. During their relationship, Canadian popstar Justin Bieber once asked her to ‘hang out’ when he was in Sydney, butInca was already at the airport for a flight and so they couldn’t meet. When asked if her then-boyfriend should be worried about this almost-encounter, she reassured, ‘I wouldn’t want to date someone famous.
I’m good with Zak, he keeps me grounded’. However, three years later the couple announced their split much to their fans’ displeasure as they expected the couple to wed.
Current Boyfriend: Kayu Vianna
After many rumors and speculation from fans, Inka confirmed her romantic relationship with pro surfer Kayu Vianna, through an Instagram post in August 2018. As of 2020, the two are still a couple and regularly share their romantic moments on Instagram.
