susan woo spring 2010 collection
After presenting her first collection in Fall 2009, its a little surprising that Susan Woo's environmentally-conscious and sophisticated line has flown so low under the radar. Despite having been been featured by Elle and Women's Wear Daily, Woo has not received as much attention as other emerging designers. Whether or not you are interested in eco fashion, any woman can appreciate the beautiful modern pieces that Ms. Woo can craft from sustainable fabrics like organic cotton and vegan silk.

bibhu mohapatra fall 2009 collection
After designing at both Halston and J Mendel, it's no surprise that Bibhu Mohapatra's designs are rich with lush fabrics, but Mohapatra's viewpoint is definitely his own. Both his construction and draping make for edgy, but luxurious pieces- think Uptown girl with a downtown edge. Mohapatra's talent makes him poised to become a younger generation's Bill Blass.
Bibhu Mohapatra will be showing Mon, Feb 15 at 4PM at the Marianne Boesky Gallery, 509 West 24th st (nr 10th Ave)
