Bibhu Mohapatra SS13: Inspired By The Luna Moth

The Spring 2013 collection acknowledges the prophetic symbolism of the luna moth to celebrate the evolution and transformation of an ever-intiuitive Bibhu woman.

This is what Bibhu Mohapatra described as his inspiration for Spring ’13, included on the handouts at the show Wednesday morning. The first thing I did when I got home…Google luna moth.

Elizabeth and James Spring 2013

Ever since Full House I have been a huge Olsen fan (and I owned just about every single one of their videos…on VHS). To look back at where they were and what they’re doing now just blows me away. Not many people know how to make a $34,000 backpack and design wearable, affordable clothes at the same time. That’s why I consider Mary-Kate and Ashley the design geniuses of our generation. And it was an honor to attend the Elizabeth and James presentation Wednesday afternoon.

So instead of me reminiscing about the 90s and how much I love the Olsens, let’s talk about Elizabeth and James Spring 2013.

QVC’s Live from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Runway Show

This weekend, I attended the QVC runway show and after party in NYC. I have been so impressed with the branding initiatives QVC has implemented within the last few years so I was very excited for this event. The runway show displayed various looks from several QVC designers, with a front row including Matthew Settle and Kelly Rutherford (AKA Rufus and Lilly) along with AnnaLynne McCord.

The after party was cool because we got to watch live broadcasts of Heidi Klum, Isaac Mizrahi and the Kardashian’s collections. I had a really great time and I can’t wait to share with you more New York Fashion Week updates!
