Bibhu Mohapatra had a major amount of hype surrounding him this year and that is all thanks to his nomination for a Rising Star Award by the Fashion Group International and his recent grant he received from the CDFA (Council of Fashion Designers America) and the New York Economic Development Corporation. Along with 11 other designers, Bibhu will be given a reduced rent in the NYC Garment Center as well as mentoring and other opportunities. .
The 20’s inspired collection was feminine with fitted pieces and luxurious fabrics.
Manicurist Jackie Saulsbery working with the Zoya Design Team came up with the combination of a full coat of Zoya Nail Polish in Sasha layered with a thin coat of Blair creating a deep sparkly look.
The crowd not only contained major fashion editors such as Lauren Santo Domingo (Vogue) who helped style the collection, but also because of the Marianne Boesky Gallery location many fab art scene faces.
