Bibhu Mohapatra had no fear to use prints on his gowns for the Spring 2015 Ready-To-Wear Collection during New York Fashion Week. Mohapatra was inspired by a biography of Nancy Cunard that he read during his seven-day trip across the Atlantic years ago. Cunard was a British-born writer, political activist and shipping heiress. He was moved by her “compassionate heart and creative mind.” Mohapatra used her inspirational morales into his own mind.
The collection had a variety of outfits from cropped tops to formal gowns. Octagon patterns were the highlight of the show, including twisted head wraps and cherry bold lips. Beadings, crepe columns and silk garments awed the audience. The designs on the outfits gave the perfect eye movement from top to bottom. Mohapatra took a big step forward to use octagon prints on formal gowns, which makes the collection unique, beautiful and elegant.
Cunard would have loved to see and wear Mohapatra’s collection.
