All hail ladylike dressing. I am really happy to see that several designers have brought grace back to New York. Bibhu Mohapatra's spring collection had a variety of elegant silhouettes that brought you back to classic Hollywood. Long gowns and short day dresses had fabric or embroidered treatments. The more restrained textural fabric appliqués blurred the line between day and evening. The brush-stroke prints gave an artistic look to garments and was appropriate to the gallery box setting.
Over-sized 1960's sunglasses and retro-hats added to the vintage Hollywood feel that much more. Black and nude heels finished off a sophisticated ensemble.
