BIBHU MOHAPATRA Spring 2015 collection. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York. Backstage ↓
BIBHU MOHAPATRA Spring 2015 Collection inspired by the muse, writer, heiress and political activist, Nancy Cunard, the Bibhu Mohapatra Spring 2015 collection acknowledges the courage and strength of women who break the rules, follow their hearts and make their own destiny. Cunard’s spirit was brought to life on September 10th at Lincoln Center, where Bibhu debuted his 42-piece collection to a packed house.
The collection was a refreshing start for Bibhu who stayed true to his love of prints and pattern’s but added a little twist. He incorporated a fabric from Laos that displayed a technique that consists of silk and leather woven together. Also featured were striking embroidered flower print details that illuminated with stones provided by Preciosa Inc., a crystal company based in the Czech Republic that sponsored the NY based fashion house this season. Not only did Bibhu stay true to his creative geometric styles, he was able to incorporate lavender and blush hues that were soft and romantic but still gave that Cunard edge. While others would channel the cliché of Cunard’s ivory bracelets, Bibhu decided to incorporate menswear-inspired motto jackets and suits that draped over evening wear and cocktail dresses.
In implementing the Cunard esthetic Bibhu partnered with long time collaborator L’Oreal Professionnel lead stylist Amit Abraham who played with textures in creating weaved like braids for this seasons show. KISS PRODUCTS INC.’s lead nail technician Gina Edwards creates the asymmetric print that was transferred to the nail art. And one cannot forget to mention the makeup that truly embodied how Nancy Cunard would look if she were a modern day fashionista. In executing this look Maybelline New York lead stylist Yadim created a cat eyed effect with a sultry plum lip.
Bibhu is expected to take his Spring 2015 collection to Paris where he will present to retailers and esteemed press. The Parisian trip is set to begin on September 23rd and end on October 2nd.
