NYFW How To: Bibhu Mohapatra's Iconoclast Braids by L'Oréal Professionnel Artist Amit Abraham

Thursday, 11 September 2014 23:26

Inspired by Jazz-age muse, heiress and political activist, Nancy Cunard, the Bibhu Mohapatra Spring 2015 collection echoes the unapologetic strength of women who break the rules!

Cunard’s avant-garde look is brought to life through the opulent fabrics and palette of Mohapatra’s collection. “I drew inspiration from a strong, controversial woman and wanted the hair to compliment her rulebreaking style,” says designer Mohapatra, who worked closely with long time collaborator and L’Oréal Professionnel Artist Amit Abraham to create the hairstyle for the collection.

“The play on textures and the variations of braids and chignons embrace Nancy Cunard’s far-reaching influences, ranging from Africa to 1920s Paris,” commented Abraham.Tribal braids are coupled with a ladylike chignon and a braided crown to create a modern iconoclastic look." The look adds an aura of the unexpected to a night out, and pairs perfectly with sequin shifts and flirty dresses.
