Forevermark diamonds light up the runway
Expert craftsmanship and innovative designs make Forevermark diamonds the perfect accessory for the runway. Leading designer Bibhu Mohapatra chose Forevermark diamonds to accessorise his AW16 and SS17 collections at New York Fashion Week this year, pairing his opulent designs with beautiful Forevermark diamond jewellery.
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. Inspired by the last Chinese empress, Cixi, Bibhu’s AW16 runway collection reveals subtle homages to her through vibrant colours, sweeping fabrics and dragonfly embroideries. Forevermark diamonds complemented the embellished collection perfectly, lighting up the catwalk.
Bibhu’s SS17 collection turns towards the women muses of La Belle Époque (“The Beautiful Era”), channelling Optimism and Positivity through his delicately embellished and glittering designs. Forevermark was proud to return to the New York Fashion Week runway with Bibhu Mohapatra, following the launch of his first ever diamond jewellery collection, The Forevermark Artemis collection, in collaboration with Forevermark India earlier this year.
From New York to Milan: Forevermark held an exclusive cocktail event on the eve of Milan Fashion Week to preview the 2017 Forevermark Trend Report. Held within the prestigious historic Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi in the heart of Milan’s fashion district, international media, influencers and celebrities attended the event as part of their hectic Fashion Week schedules. Stunning Forevermark diamond jewellery looks were beautifully contrasted by the historic and romantic setting.
To mark the occasion, Forevermark worked with British installation artist Rebecca Louise Law to create a unique bespoke piece that was unveiled at the event, ‘White, 2016’. It took 800 hours of labour to intricately intertwine the flowers using Rebecca’s signature copper wire. Suspended above a beautiful Italian courtyard, Rebecca utilised the natural light to create a unique experience for the audience, evoking the sense of standing in a field of diamonds.
