Indian-American fashion designer Bibhu Mohapatra is one of the most interesting designers of his generation.
The FW 16-17, presented a week ago in New York City and inspired by XIX Chinese empress Dowager Cixi (a controversial yet fascinating historical figure) is probably amongst his best collections.

Bibhu Mohapatra created a collection that mixes past, present and future elegance in an outstanding way.

Here’s what we loved the most:

  • The way he turned his inspiration into reality
  • The enchanting juxtaposition of different fabrics
  • His reinterpretation of empress Dowager Cixi’s style
  • The way he combined strength and romanticism
  • His exquisite taste

What do you think? Take a look at the collection in the gallery below and tell us what you liked the most.
