High above Manhattan, Bibhu Mohapatra celebrated his Fashion Week outing with cocktails last night on the 46th floor of the Trump SoHo.
Floor-to-ceiling windows offered stunning pictures of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges and beyond.
The skyline provided backdrops for guests such as fellow designer Prabal Gurung and model Anjhula Singh Bais, a blogger for Vogue India.
It was a tranquil scene compared with Fashion Week’s Lincoln Center base, where temporary tents were sandwiched between the David H. Koch Theater and the Metropolitan Opera House.
Earlier, the designer’s 33 models sported crow’s feathers at their neck or long gowns in blue and plum. For the woman who needs to be noticed, there was a bolero in long goat hair.

“The collection is about the conflict of extreme opposites that we carry in our minds: good versus evil, darkness versus light,” Mohapatra said.
