Another incredible day in New York city!  Just when we thought things could not possibly get any better, the excitement levels stepped up again!

The designer for todays parade was New York based costume/fashion designer Bibhu Mohapatra, born in the Orrissa region in India.  At 44 years of age, Bibhu has a love of fashion and channels this into costume design for opera and theater.  One of his most famous clients is First Lady Michelle Obama.

I was speechless at how incredibly beautiful his gowns where and I have to say I’ve never seen a man tie the most beautiful bows.  It was so fantastic to watch him work and straighten each gown as the models stepped out onto the catwalk.  We helped complete the finishing touches on the models with Lauren McCowan from Evo.  Lauren was our hair director and gave us a fantastic briefing and clear direction which she had been giving from the designer Bibhu.

The hair look was a very specific textured wave  with a low side part and a sweeping fringe that went into a twist with one side behind the shoulder and the other side over the shoulder.

We loved every minute.  Mandy also had the chance to watch the rehearsal!
