Forevermark diamonds light up New York Fashion Week

Bibhu Mohapatra partners with Forevermark for his Fall Winter Show

Bibhu Mohapatra Fall Winter 2016 collection

Forevermark have proudly partnered with Bibhu Mohapatra to accessorise his Fall Winter 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week. Dazzling Forevermark diamonds perfectly accent the vibrant colours and sweeping fabrics, bringing a sense of serenity in the bustling dressing rooms and then lighting up the catwalk during Bibhu Mohapatra’s Fall Winter show. Inspired by the last Chinese empress, Cixi, we see subtle homages to her in his work - dragonfly embroideries neighboured with refined floral print on a deep red evening gown. 

Growing up with his family in Orissa, on the East Coast of India, Bibhu Mohapatra’s appreciation for sumptuous Indian fabrics and vibrant colours began at an early age. This initial exposure to textiles and garment construction still inspires Bibhu’s designs and permeates throughout the collections of his namesake label.

Take a look behind the scenes, to get a glimpse of the designer immersed in his beautiful work. Powerful women, with a feminine edge is the theme behind the collection, a perfect partnership for the intricate yet statement Forevermark diamond jewels.  

“I have designed a collection exclusively with Forevermark, set to launch in India later this year.”

Forevermark started a partnership with Bibhu Mohapatra for his previous collection and is pleased to return to New York Fashion Week with such a talented designer.

“I chose Forevermark to accessorise the models in my Fall 2016 Runway show at New York Fashion Week because of the inherent beauty and rarity of Forevermark diamonds. We had several dozen gorgeous diamond pieces sent from Forevermark India. The ornate style of the jewellery fit perfectly with the theme of my collection, which is inspired by the legendary Chinese ‘Dragon Lady’ Empress Cixi. Also, Forevermark diamonds are responsibly sourced, meaning they give back to the communities where they come from, which is incredibly important to me. If fact, I have designed a collection exclusively with Forevermark, set to launch in India later this spring.” - Bibhu Mohapatra
