                                                                                                                          Bibhu Mohapatra's Spring 2013 collection is a nod to the prophetic symbolism of the Luna moth. Moth inspired prints adorn the modern silhouettes of swingy daydresses, billowing blouses, peplum tops and pencil skirts. A clever mix of day and eveningwear, Mohapatra's collection is both practical and fantastical, from the utility accented bomber jackets he pairs with leather dresses to his backless onyx cape and ivory devoree gown. From a more casual start to a glamorous finish, one can begin to understand Mohapatra's inspiration in the symbolic representation of transformation evoked by the Luna moth. Much as the moth transforms, so does the ever-intuitive Bibhu woman.
