Dreamy goldfishes floating down the runway. At least that's how my father, the photographer described this show. Bibhu Mohapatra has been on a stellar rise in recent years. He is winning awards left and right, working along side of Prabal Garung and Waris Ahlwallia at the Fashion Incubator.
His elegant evening gowns had a bit of 1930's silhouettes, fishtail hems and ombre colors. Embellishments were strategically laid out to be the most flattering on (real) women's bodies. The inspiration for this collection was Chinese opera, like the legendary tale of the white haired lady.
