Bibhu Mohapatra NYFW 2017

Growing up with his family in Orissa, on the East Coast of India, Bibhu Mohapatra’s appreciation for sumptuous Indian fabrics and vibrant colors began at an early age. This initial exposure to textiles and garment construction still inspires Bibhu’s designs and permeates throughout the collections of his namesake label.

Bibhu moved to America in 1996, and after graduating from Utah State University with a Masters degree in Economics, moved to New York City in 1999 and enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology. While working on his design degree, Bibhu honed his skills as an assistant designer at the iconic American fashion label, Halston.
