De Beers Forevermark returns to the runway at Bibhu Mohapatra’s FW19 Show
Celebrating our on-going partnership with leading New York-based fashion designer, Bibhu Mohapatra, we were privileged for De Beers Forevermark diamond jewellery to share the runway with his stunning work once more. An assortment of beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced diamond jewellery pieces designed by Narayan Jewellers were the perfect compliment to the designer’s Fall Winter 2019 collection showcased at New York Fashion Week.
Read on to unveil the inspiration behind the collection.
Having worked with De Beers Forevermark on so many occasions, what has kept our partnership going is the commitment and excellence the brand comes with. Their core ideology of using only the most beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced diamonds resonates with my brand ideologies and design principles.
Celebrating 10 years
FW19 saw Bibhu Mohapatra celebrate his tenth anniversary collection, culminating a decade of bold prints, intricate beading, and show-stopping silhouettes. Bibhu’s Collection came alive in this special runway show, inspired by his trip to Mount Stewart, UK, its history of the famous gardens and the women who helped create them – often disguised as men, they travelled the world in search of new lands and exotic flora and foliage. Intricate embroideries, textured fabrics and details capture the free-spiritedness of the garden, while the emboldened silhouettes are inspired by the woman as a master of her natural surroundings.
Complementing the exquisite craftsmanship of Bibhu’s designs, the innovative jewellery collection is striking, imaginative and elegant. Featuring layered necklaces, ear cuffs, cocktail rings, statement necklaces, and multi-functional concept earrings, the bespoke jewellery collection is whimsical yet feminine, adding a touch of glamour to the runway.
Inspired by the sculptural symmetries of desert cacti, this striking geometric design features a dramatic plunging pendant fully embellished with rare De Beers Forevermark diamonds. Whilst the silhouette is classic, clever flourishes such as a mix of 18k rose and white gold, and assorted diamond shapes imbue the design with an attractive modern sensibility.
It was important to create jewellery pieces featuring De Beers Forevermark that not only defined modern contemporary but also acted as the perfect accompaniment for Bibhu’s couture pieces
Inspired by exquisite blooms, these jhumka earrings feature an 18k rose gold flower clip at the heart of which nestles a cluster of beautiful round, marquise and pear shape De Beers Forevermark diamonds. Shimmering 18k white gold box chains flow up and over the ear, connecting the clip to a fan-shaped, diamond-embellished fringe of mixed white and rose golds.
Echoing Mohapatra’s rich botanical inspirations, each piece delighted with its details – dazzling clusters of marquise, pear and round shape diamonds, a modern blend of rose and white golds, cascades of ultra-fine chain and lashings of glamour!
