The new fall season is all about turning over a new leaf, and NYC designer Bibhu Mohapatra's fall '12 campaign is giving us serious makeover motivation. Or, to put it bluntly, it makes us wish we were a whole lot fancier. The sometimes ethereal, sometimes full-on trippy vid showcases all of the FIT grad (and former Halston assistant!)'s gorgeous, and oh-so-chic, duds — think ombré gowns and silk floral suits.
The line was inspired by the early 20th century Chinese opera The White Haired Girl, and channels imperial China in the most glamorous way possible. One peek at the breathtaking model twirling around in the designs will have you yearning for a spot on the fall gala circuit. See for yourself below, and don't blame us for wanting to toss out your jeans and tees.
