NY Fashion Week: Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2011

The fashion elite literally kissed designer  Bibhu Mohapatra at his Fall 2011 presentation at the Box at Lincoln Center.  Styled by Vogue's Lauren Santo Domingo, the collection was one of the standouts for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. It was well edited and beautifully presented like a Vogue magazine editorial, the models were elegant, chic and edgy at the same time. 

Ladylike black leather gloves were covered with glittering bracelets from Dannigo and edged with black feathers on the models.  They looked every inch the lady but with a definte dark edge.  There was a gorgeous fluted column dress, shirred chiffon column dresses, architecturally folded bodices punctuated occasionally by a piece with flat rivets, each piece had a specific direction. 

There were a few standout jackets cut extremely well and flattering to the body.

Bibhu’s collection was based on the ‘sinister glamour of nature, at once frightening and very tempting…”
and it did tempt. Buyers from top stores were scribbling furiously into notepads and blackberries and at one point, one blocked press photos of the models. When the photographer asked her to move, she sternly told him that she was ‘working’ meaning sales are going to follow!  

Finally, after the madness of socialites, editors and crush of photographers left, we had a chance to also congratulate Bibhu on his stellar collection. Apparently, we were not the only ones who were excited.

Hamish Bowles and Linda Fargo,Women's Fashion Director  of Bergdorf Goodman also stopped to extend their sincere congratulations.
